Pixel Aspect Ratio Hell

Posted By

Our company gets faxes (in TIF format) that we need to add information to, and then refax to another office. When we load these files in PS CS we get a message saying pixel aspect ratio is only for preview, and directing us to turn it off for best image quality. We click OK, the image comes up and looks perfect.

But when we try and follow this direction by switching to Square ratio (we assume this is the equivalent of turning it off? — There *is* no ‘disable’ option), the image immediately gets squashed vertically to half its proper size. Then we have to manually resize the image and redouble its vertical dimension.

What a pain in the ass. Is there any way of forcing CS to handle these files properly? We don’t have this problem with any other editor.
