Great Feature for detail work
Posted 13 January 2011 - 10:18 PM
Open your photo. Go to Window>Arrange>New Window for IMG. Then go to Window>Arrange>Tile. Your image and a duplicate are side by side, and you can zoom in on one, do detail work and see how it will look in the normal sized view, plus it's great for keeping things "natural." I really like this feature, since it's hard to tell how the print size might look without constantly zooming in and out.
Hope it will help some of you and I am not just the last to know this- LOL!

LOL Dot, that is SO true! Any clothes I need I purchase at consignment, Goodwill (yes really I find fabulous stuff there all the time:) and I buy my fav jeans on Ebay whenever I wear a hole in the old pair(s). That's what keeps me going in scrap supplies. Plus who has time for clothes shopping when there is scrapping to be done!?

I have a b-day coming up in March, I hope to upgrade by then. Maybe I can get an early b-day gift.
Yes, I think a pre-birthday gift is in order!
Seriously, I do see a "need" for you here, vs. a "want."

LOL, I can tell a little bit! I KNOW! Isn't it so great? It was just that one extra step of the side by side tile view and wow! I am so happy that I can share some good info and return the MANY favors of generous help I have received here!

Carol, I tried this in PSE7 and it has a slightly different way to get there, but I think the PSE8 and PSE9 owners said it was similar to the PS method, so I don't want to confuse the issue and hope one of them will come along....
So, your picture or LO is open, and you use Window>Images>New Window but then in the next step tile is grayed out. I just tried that, and tile was available but cascade was grayed out....so, similar situation. I had a lot of layout/windows open, so I closed all the extras and left just the two LOs I wanted to work on with this technique. Then I tried again, but cascade was still unavailable. So, I tried "float in windows." They floated, and then when I went back to Window, both tile AND cascade (in fact, all options) were now available. Go figure! Don't know why it worked, but hopefully it will work for you, too- LOL!

Glad to hear it!
RAM, there's nothing like it, is there? LOL at the things which make us happy!
Do you close down unnecessary background processes? On my old laptop, when things got sluggish I would go into the task manager and shut off anything I wasn't using and the computer didn't need to run. A common offender to really slow things down was Adobe Reader. If I wasn't using it, I would close it. I could always just reopen anything I closed by clicking on the program throught Start>All Programs. Another thing I ALWAYS closed was Windows Automatic Update. Nothing like having the computer restart in the middle of a layout! It will reload the next time the computer is started anyway (unless you have it set up otherwise.)

I am sure that daVinci would have been fascinated by this feature, but Michelangelo Buonarroti would have been puzzled to see daVinci working on the Sistine ceiling...
