I've finally completed a LO in PSE 11and was hoping to post it today. But when I went to change the Resolution of my page to 72 ppi, BIG PROBLEM! Here's the story.

Opened 300 ppi jpg LO in PSE (EXPERT) (3600 x3600 pixels)

-Went to IMAGE >> RESIZE>> IMAGE SIZE - everything looked fairly normal there to me.
-Constrain Proportions checked BUT greyed out??? Width(12 in)-Height(12in)-Resolution(300ppi) linked with little link symbol greyed out too.
-Changed Resolution to 72ppi here

There is no option to change the width/height to PIXELS like I used to have. So what do I do now? The Width/Height can be changed, but they are linked to the Resolution...so it never "really" changes the dimensions down as I have done in the past.

I'm sure there's a way to do this. What am I missing (part of my brain?)? PLEASE HELP!!

Oh, gosh Debbie that happened to me in PSE6 once and I don't know how it happened or how I fixed it.
Did you try "resetting tool"? That's always my first go-to.

Good luck and hope someone else comes along! :)

Hi Debbie,
Make sure "resample image" is checked. If it isn't, the other two (scale styles and constrain proportions") will be grayed out. I hope that works for you!

You could also try "save for web" option, it automatically resizes it.
