The area copied with marquee tool is smaller than the original image when copied to another image. How do I copy the exact size image.

The image gets cropped down when copying by the Marquee Tool.

As can be seen the image gets cropped down both in height and width.
In the attached print screen, both images are idenical. One ha sbeen copied through Marquee Tool and superimposed on the other, As can be seen the second image is smaller.

When copying between documents, onlt the pixel size is relevent. Make sure units are set to pixels (right click inside a ruler) And drag from the box at the intersetion of the rulers to the exact top left corner of the invoice.  Zoom in if you need to Now check the exact size of the invoice from the ruler. Repeat on the other document.  If the pixel sizes match, then they will line up.  If they don't just use Free Transform to stretch the smaller to match the larger.

Thank you Trevor for a prompt response.

However, as can be seen from the attached screen-shot, the selected image is croped smaller than the original by a slight amount (but sufficient for it to be a problem for me). For example if the original image is 3.69 inches by 8.56 inhes, the copied image will be cropped down to 3.63 by 8.52. It happens only with the left and top border of the image. the right and the bottom borders are copied fully.

The Blue Arrow in the image shows the original image, while the Red Arrow shows the cropped down selelcted area which will get copied.

I have even tried using the "Select All" option from the Top Bar. Same problem.

Why isn't the whole image being copied. It is getting croped down.
Thanks, once again, for your prompt help.

Regards,

Dr Raza Gardezi
