I've created a template-based video story in Premier Elements 15 and was dismayed to find most of the images(pictures) were inserted too large for the frames. Only a center portion of the picture is there in some of them, particularly the main title slide.  How do I re-size the images to make them fit?

You're saying you used Video Story to make a movie and the photos were too large for the frame? That shouldn't happen. Especially if, in your Preferences (under the Edit menu  on a PC) you have Scale Still Photos to Frame Size checked. Do you?

In my books, I always recommend resizing your photos to no larger than 2500x1875 pixels (at 72 ppi) -- so you can try that and see if that makes a difference. (Photoshop Elements will batch resize your photos.)

But you shouldn't need to for a Video Story project. So I don't know what's going on with your project.

Hi Steve - I don't see "Scale Still Photos to Frame Size" in any Edit>Preferences menu I've gone to, either in PE15 or PremE15.  I DO see a"Default scale to frame size" and it is checked.  I also see a "Allow Photos to Resize" and it is checked.  I checked the size of the image of the worst offender - the one behind my main title -  and the size is 1880 X 2816, a vertical image - and it shows up WAY beyond the frame of the title its behind.   I don't know where to find your 72 PPI reference.  I don't see that anywhere in the file info.  Are we talking about Premier Elements 15?  Any other suggestions? 

  I will tell you that in a  previous version of this same video story, I was having the same trouble.  Then, all of a sudden, everything was fine.  All the pictures fit fine in their frames.  I can't remember what I did - if anything - or if it was just one of those occasions when closing and re-opening a file did it.  But I have closed and re-opened the current version of this video story several times, and it is NOT fixing itself.  For various reasons, I made a couple new versions; BIG Mistake.

Based on what you've told me, I have no idea why you're having this problem, Bill. Sorry.

Maybe someone else will have a suggestion.
