Canvas Size->Image Size? (Elements)

    1) When you Resize the Canvas Size of a JPEG to a larger value in
    Photoshop Elements and Save (or Save As) the resulting file without
    doing anything further, the image size for the file is now the same as
    the new enlarged canvas size, right? -- is that correct?

    (Putting this another way, does the file retain _any_ memory of the
    earlier, smaller image size?)

    2) Since the added pixels initially all have the same value, the
    compressed file size may increase somewhat but should not increase
    proportionally when you do this -- right?

    3) Is there any way to do the above without suffering _any_ degradation
    of the original image due to image re-compression during the Save

    Thanks to any responders for helping educate me . . .

    No, however you could crop down to the original image and basically recreate
    Yes, save your images as psd's or tiffs.

  3. Save as TIFF or PSD or another non-lossy format.
