This is probably a very newbie queestion, but - when I open a picture in Photoshop Elements, where can I see its original resolution? Thanks!
The "Zoom" tool (looks like a magnifying glass) lets you control magnification of images as viewed on your screen. The quickest way to see an image at 100% (1:1 ratio) is to double click the zoom tool.
Right, but that doesn't show me what resoution it is.
. . . or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+1 on Windows (Cmd+1 on Mac).
Right click your file in Windows Explorer, then Properties >> Details tab
Thank you. My question was - is there a way to see it inside the Elements?
To address your specific inquiry, when you open a picture file in PSE editor (expert tab), go to Image menu>Resize>Image size and you can read the resolution in px/in. This dialog also permits one to change the resolution with resampling.
The zoom tool does not alter the underlying resolution. Its behavior is analagous to a magnifying glass.
In the Organizer, you can see a selected image's resolution in the Information panel on the right:
Yes, this is what I was looking for. Thank you!
