Was this caused by a glitch ? - Adobe Photoshop Elements

And do I need to re-install Photoshop E. 2? This is what happened today for the first time: I set the canvas size to the size of the finished print that I want, 8x10". Then I open the scanned image which is 4x6". But when I copy and paste it into the canvas, the scanned image has become 8x10". Any ideas? Thank you....

    June, I'm not sure I completely understand your workflow...are you saying
    that when you copy and paste the scanned image onto the new canvas, it
    expands to fill the canvas? If that's what's happening, it's likely because
    your scan is at a higher resolution (ppi) than your previously opened
    canvas. This would definitely occur if you pasted a 600 ppi 4x6 into a 300
    ppi 8x10 - and you'd lose some of the image off the 10" edge. Is that what
    you're seeing?

    Yes, my 4x6 is scanned at 600 and my canvas is set at 300 resolution, but in the past the scanned photo has pasted in at a size that's relative to the canvas, which is what I want so that I can enlarge and manipulate it. I hope that makes sense - I'm new to this. I wonder if I accidentally changed a setting? Thanks for your reply.

    June, it won't work that way - if you want the 4x6 to reside in its entirety
    on the 8x10 canvas in the proper ratio, you need to increase the blank
    canvas resolution to 600 ppi, the same as the scan. However, I'm not sure
    what function the 8x10 canvas is serving for you - are you trying to create
    a border around your 4x6 picture so it will fit in an 8x10 frame as if it
    were matted?

    Thanks Chuck, I'll try that. What's confusing me is that I haven't had any trouble with this approach until today. My son set it up for me this way so that I could create my artwork at the size of the finished print, which I then paint from. He set the scanner to 600 because I would be enlarging small pictures by a lot - sometimes up to 11x14". I burn the finished file (changed to Acrobat?) to a CD in a PDF format and take it to Kinkos to have it printed. If I increase the resolution on the canvas to 600, will the file size be even bigger than it already is and is that a problem?

    June, the file will be bigger, but I don't think Kinko's would have any
    problem with it. I'm guessing they see a lot larger files than the ones
    you'll be creating.

    Thank you, Chuck! Matching up the resolutions worked.

    June, that's great news! Hopefully, Kinko's will do a good job with the
    files you're creating.
