I've been trying to debug an error that is increasingly becoming more
annoying than anything.
When I try to adjust the Canvas Size it is defaulting to 0 in height
and width. If I enter any number it adds it to the current size.
So if my current image/canvas size is 400 x 300 and I select Canvas
Size and I put in 50 x 20 (to make it smaller) my new canvas size then
is 450 x 320.... it's ADDED my requested size instead of reducing the
I've tried to put in a negative sign in the front of the numbers, but
it obviously gives me an error.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
I have installed both 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 updates directly from Adobe's
Thanks so much in advance for all your help!!
First off, thank you all for responding!! :)
I guess I did not explain this correctly.... there is a problem with
my install of Photoshop and I'm trying to see how to fix it besides
uninstalling and reinstalling.
These are the steps I take just to give you an idea of what is the
1. I open an image, for example sake let's say it's 450 x 300
2. I want to crop it to 85 x 85, middle default to crop to the middle
3. I select Image Canvas Size
4. Where it should have Current Size: 450 x 300 in the Width: /
Height: ;... THIS IS THE ERROR: it has Width: 0 / Height: 0
5. If I put in 85 x 85 and click Ok my new canvas size is now 535 x
385 and a nice 85 pixel frame in the background color which was set
for the Canvas Extention Color
In other words, I can not do anything smaller than my original canvas
size... I have to manually crop, which sometimes is a pain when I want
to take a pixel or two off without having to draw guides to make sure
I get it perfect... or double click and type in a manual marching ants
marquee to then select and crop.
Again, it's just a major annoyance than anything, but it's just enough
to bug me to want to see if there is an easy fix.
