When I make a 25% crop of an image of 6000 x 4000 PS Elements makes the new image still 6000 x 4000 in stead of 3000 x 2000. Ps Elements is recalculating to the original pixels and I don't want PSE to do that!
Recalculate pixels has been switched off! What can I do?
If your referring to using Image>Resize>Image Size, then changing any values without Resample Image checked does not add or subtract pixels but rather changes the image meta data related to Print Size.
The only way to make the physical pixel dimensions actually smaller or larger in the Image Size dialog is to check Resample Image.
