    Default Question on PS Element....

    Hi.... I own both a PnS and a DSLR camera. But as most of us are aware..... PnS camera shoots in 4:3 format while most DSLR uses the 3:2 format as in all 'normal' photos.

    When I print my photos on my home printer.... the Canon printer will have a software to 'Crop' any 4:3 photo to just the right size for 4R or A4 size printing.

    Problem -

    I crop my photo manunally with PhotoShop Element but can't always get the correct 3:2 format.... either just a little to high or too wide. Example, instand of 800x533..... I get 795x549 (something like that). I know the problem is because of me cropping the areas I wanted manunally..... therefore can't always get the correct, perfect ratio of 3:2......

    Question -

    Is there somewhere in PS that I could set a 3:2 setting, so that whatever area I decided to crop will always be in that format in the end ?? I understand that I could resize the photo to a more 3:2 size..... but that sometimes cause the shape inside the photo to change its shape and form......

    Thxs for all and any information.

    Use the crop tool. You can choose the size you wish to crop to.

    The top bar will display a value for width and for height and also the resolution you require. You can also choose the aspect ratio for elements. I.e. 4in x 6in

    You can change the aspect ratio from normal to fixed aspect ratio. Then change the ratio to 3:2, after that you can easily choose any area you want, and the selection will automatically fixed the ratio to 3:2.
