Pixel Aspect Ratio Hell

    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.
