importing photos coome out small

Help! I am importing photos from PhotoShop CS3. These are jpeg (will be using pop-ups). The photos are created as I always do. However, when pulled or imported onto the page (Freeway 4 - latest) they are half or less the size that they should be. Any idea what the problem is?

Just a guess… check the resolution of the photos in PS, I bet they
are 300 pixels / inch (or similar), if you change that to 72 then they
will probably be the same size as FW shows them.

No, I changed them to 72 pixels in PhotoShop.

Does this problem follow when you draw a new Graphics box using the
graphic box tool and import the photo using Apple E? Graphics boxes
“stick” to whatever percentage was last used in them, so if you are
re-using a box that already held a graphic that had been resized
down, the next image you import into it will be scaled to the same
percentage.

No. It comes in smaller than the graphic box. I have tried just dropping it onto the page as well. No luck.

Also, when working in PhotoShop I find that on some of the images, I cannot save them in jpeg. Only Tiff or Photoshop. The ones I am finally getting in Jpeg are the ones that will not work.

Is it possible to control click, then select graphic and then select “scale to box”?

when you change them to 72 dpi do you have the resample box checked? this changes the pixel size, make sure the pixel dimensions are still what you want them to be before you complete the resize image.

i.e. if you take a image that is 300 dpi and change it to 72 and have the resample on, it drastically reduces the pixel size of the image…

I don’t think so. If the image is then enlarged it would suffer and not be sharp etc. These are photos of paintings.

Why not then import the native PS files and let FW do its stuff for you.

I need to do jpeg so that i can use pic to new window for enlargements. Otherwise I could use ones twice the size I need as they then come out about right.

Yes, the resample size box is clicked.

Try doing them without that. The photo won’t appear to change at all in Photoshop, but Freeway will see a huge difference.

Tried it. Then you cannot change the original size. These came in too large. The one i have the most trouble with is one that I created a long photo consisting of three smaller ones side by side. The layers have been flattened. But it will not let me choose jpeg -only tiff or photoshop. I can pull it onto the site in the large size and it comes out about half that size. This is really weird!

Tobé, I don’t mean this in a derogatory way, but
I think you need to put some time into
understanding image resolution and how it is
controlled in Photoshop, and then how that works
in print-oriented DTP apps and in Freeway. It
isn’t all quite as obvious as many people first
think, and it does sound like you’re hitting
problems in this area.

If you need to have an image for the Pic to New
Window action, by all means make JPEGs. But FIRST
make sure they are the right PIXEL dimensions in
Photoshop. For this use, it really doesn’t matter
at all what the ppi setting is… The ONLY
thing you should care about is how many actual
pixels wide and tall your image is.

Once it is the right size, and it looks correct
when viewed at 100% in Photoshop (and you’ve done
any final sharpening), then use the File menu’s
Save for Web (or Save for Web & Devices) command
and generate a web-optimised JPEG.

For your thumbnails, you can either import the
image you just created above, then scale it to
fit a smaller box in a Freeway page, or create a
separate smaller image.

Yes you can. Just enter a new pixel size in the top fields. Try this:
open File info, then uncheck the ‘resample’ box if it’s checked. Then,
if you’re altering the resolution, enter 72 in the resolution field;
this will alter the sizes in the middle pair of fields, cm, inches etc
but will not affect the pixel size. Then check the ‘Resample’ box, and
enter the size you want in pixels in the top ‘Pixe’ fields. Remember,
the pixel size is the only one that matters

Is the file in 16bit? That would stop you saving a JPEG. Go to the
Image>Mode menu item and have a look …

Ah! I have always just saved it as a jpeg. Never did Save For The Web. THanks.
