Picture resizes after pasting

Recommended Posts

I have stitched together a picture and cropped it to by 21"x7" so that it can be printed as three separate 7x5 photos and framed together to make a pano. Right now the "master" image is perfectly sized at 21x7. When I try to cut out the first 7x5 portion, it resizes to 5.25x3.75 when I paste into a new image. If I resize it from there it becomes distorted. I've been using the retangle selector set to fixed size (7x5); and selecting cut from then paste into new image from the edit menu.

How can I get the pasted image to be the same size as the one that is cut?

It's not actually being resized. The two images simply don't have matching DPI (resolution), and so the conversion from pixels to inches is different.

Use Image->Resize to match up the DPI (resolution).
