I've cropped the image below, but I'm having trouble blowing it up bigger. I'll post what the image was and then what I cropped it to be. I've just recently started using heavy crop and resizing stuff.

I want the 2nd image to have the same overall picture shape as the first. I've tried resizing, but when I post it continues to post just like the second image. I was testing on a different site. I'm starting to get a little frustrated working with this.

I'm probably also being stupid and not understanding what I can or can't do with the image. I'd greatly appreciate the help.

The only thing that I can guess is due to the fact that I'm leaving the constraint proportions box checked is the reason why the width changes; however, the height stays relatively proportionate. Editing is a little bit of a learning curve for me at the moment. I'm also using PSE 7 for my editing.

It can't be done without distorting the second image. The aspect ratios (the ratio of height to width) of the two images are different.

Since the second image is already the same width as the top one, you would have to stretch the height of the second without changing its width. You would go from this ...

what is the original image size? what is the image size you want it to be? Only thing I can think of is that you are cropping the image smaller than what you want so no matter what you do later it won't be that size...

sorry but I can't view your pictures right now from work...I'm sorry if I'm way off the mark

Thanks Peano. You answered what I was thinking and tried, but I thought maybe there was a way I wasn't thinking of. Now I will understand what I'm doing, since someone else pointed out what I was thinking that I couldn't do, but wasn't sure. Editing is completely new to me, so it's taking me some time to really want to learn a thing or two.

I think ultimately what my mind was thinking was different than what my 24-70 is capable of. What I was mentally thinking would have worked with the 70-200 on the long end, but not with the 24-70 on the long end. I wanted the flag to be as big as possible, but I have too much sky, because I don't have enough reach.

It's pitiful how long it will take me to get comfortable doing more and more difficult editing. Thanks a lot guys you really helped me in my dilemna. Next thing on the agenda is to get a 25 ft ladder!

Why Can't you just clone out the second flag?
