At work we use Photoshop CS5. Old, I know, but that's what I have to work with. I'm on Windows 10.
Recently, when I place certain images Photoshop is automatically shrinking the image dimensions to around 1-2 inches. What on earth is going on?
I don't want this, and this behavior is undesirable. This article is the only relevant thing I've found in my search to solve this prior to posting:
Here is an example of source image:
Now the result after placing:
After placing, the image has been automatically resized to around 1x2"
For comparison, below we can clearly see by dragging into InDesign that the original image width is almost 7 inches!
I tried the suggested
Edit > Preferences and uncheck "Resize Image During Place" and "Place or Drag Raster Images as Smart Objects". To no avail.
I don't think his issue is the same as mine, but it is close. But following the instructions (mentioned immediately above) that worked for him did not work for me.
Also, it may be useful to note that I keep getting this window popping up every time I place a jpg:
I did set this up (popping up the window) following instructions in a post about a month or so ago. The reason was because a certain jpeg files would throw an error and wouldn't open at all. I don't actually remember what settings I changed, but I'm wondering if that could have something to with this current issue? I don't see any sizing options here.
What is the cause of this issue, why can't I find anyone online who's experienced the same thing, and what is the best solution to prevent Photoshop CS5 from auto-resizing/scaling my images?
