Importing ps 3300 x 2550 into ae while converting to 1920 x 1080 and keeping layer sizes

I imported multiple files using import as: composition - retain layer sizes. The photoshop files originated as 3300 x 2550. The ae composition is 1920 x 1080. The first time I imported them they converted to 1920 x 1080, retaining the layer sizes so everything fits perfectly in the frame.

Subsequent attempts resulted in the size within the 3300 x 2550 ratio. For example: (1650 x 1275). Please advise how to retain the layer sizes going from 3300 x2550 in ps into 1920 x 1080 in ae.
Thanks.
Diane

I would begin by double-checking pixel aspect ratios. They should be square in both applications, i.e. a pixel aspect ratio of 1.0.

I'm at a loss to explain why a 3300 x 2550 Photoshop document would be automatically be converted to 1920 x 1080. Not once in my experience has AE done anything like that.

As a matter of practice, I recommend importing PS files and placing into a layer at the native resolution of the PS file. Then place that entire layer into another comp that is at the output resolution, and scaling the PS layer as needed.
