|Posted: 7/25/2013 10:58:19 PM|I've downloaded some free kits off of the internet. When I went to open the papers in PSE the size was 8x8 and 300dpi. This may be a silly question but can you resize it to 12x12? When I resize the paper it looks the same in the window as it did before I resized. There is so much to learn I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I'm trying to take it slow and watch as many tutorials as I can. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I've noticed that a lot of kit papers are coming in 8x8 size now; I wonder if that's because it's an increasingly common print size?
When re-sizing in PSE, I either drop the paper into the template/12x12 document I'm working in and drag on the handles to resize it, or go to Image menu (on the top menu bar) - menu path Image>Resize>Image Size and resize it to 12 inches wide and 12 inches long.

I love these kits but now I'm a little bummed I'm going to have to pay attention to this when I look to download now. There is so much to learn! I tried to get on board with digital before and got so overwhelmed I didn't stick with it. I don't want to quit on it this time. I have been searching everywhere for useful information and actually did a template and it turned out great! Now if I can learn how to create my own pages and make them great. Thanks so much ladies for the input I appreciate it I'm sure I'll be back with more questions.

Actually 8x8 is a great size to digiscrap. Unless you're totally committed to the larger format, 8x8 looks great printed, the books and albums are nice and compact, and the pages take up less memory on your computer. I've been scrapping that size for 7 years, and can count the number of times I have up sized to 12x12 on the fingers of one hand.
