[scaled] images in photoshop
on Jul 25, 2005 at 4:59:00 pm

I have been using Photoshop since version 3.1 but this problem has me stumped. I am working on a project where large maps were scanned by Lynn Copies (on a large 3ft scanner)and the files were saved as TIFFs. When I open the files up in PS, on the title bar is says FILE0001.TIFF@25% (bitmap)[scaled]. The image looks very distorted (scrunched) and when I rotate it 90 degrees, it becomes even more distorted. I've tried all kinds of tricks to get the photo to print correctly with no luck.

Does anyone know how to un[scale] a scaled image?

Thanks

Gene Burch

It sounds like PS is previewing the file in Pixel Aspect Ratio Correction mode. This is typically used for creating graphics for video and the .9 NTSC aspect ratio. Not sure why your images would automatically open that way. To remove it go to VIEW/PIXEL ASPECT RATIO CORRECTION and make sure it is unchecked.

Ian,

Thanks for your help but I've discovered another problem with these scaled TIFF files. After I open them and uncheck "pixel aspect ratio", do a "save as" a PSD file, close the file and reopen it, it opens scaled again. It's like these files are haunted! Any suggestions?

Thanks

Yeah, you'll need to change the image's pixel aspect ratio. You can do this under IMAGE/PIXEL ASPECT RATIO and change it to Square. That should do it.
