Hello,

I have still images that I have exported from FCP. Originally shot on HDV tape, the stills (or screengrabs) look compressed. Is there a default size I should reset them to in Photoshop to make them look normal?

Currently, they are this size:

Pixel Dimensions: 1440 X1080 Document size: 19.997 X 14.998 inches

Resolution: 72.009

I'm assuming by unchecking the "constrain proportions" box I can manipulate them, but am wonderng if anyone knows what I should resize them to.

Thanks in advance.

Depends on what you mean by "compressed" ????
I'm going to guess that you mean the width looks shrunk by ~20% .. a wide screen 16:9 ratio is being displayed as (was changed to) 4:3

Working on a copy, So you don't mess up the original .... (setting the aspect ratio back to 16:9) ...
Try setting the width to 1920 x 1080 pixels (Resample Checked > Constrain Proportions unchecked > Bicubic Smoother)

1440/1080=1.33 (4:3 ratio) 1920/1080=1.78 (16:9 ratio)

The document size (inches) is determined by the resolution dpi (pixels/inch) ...
With the Resample Unchecked ...
You can change the physical size <> or the dpi .. To what ever you want without changing the picture.

But FIRST .. Does this Test Circle/Square look round and square ???
If not, then you're seeing it wrong .. Or you grabbed it from a computer that wasn't set correctly
