    Is there a way to set defaults in Adobe Photoshop (I'm using version 6) so
    that when I hit CTRL-N to get a new blank window to come up so that I can
    paste items into it, that I don't have to keep changing "pixels" to inches
    in the height and width boxes, and resetting the width and height numbers.?
    Thanks,

    Chris

  2. 7.0.1 suffers from the same "problem." One solution? Record an action (I
    never had v6 installed, so I am making assumption that v6 can record an
    action).

    Create a new action, name it
    click Record
    make the selection in the "original"
    Ctrl-C to copy the selection
    Ctrl-N to make New copy
    change width and height to inches
    Ctrl-V to paste
    stop recording

    Hit the Play button on the selected action. Vy-ola.

    I'm a newbie second class, so I figure that was pretty ok for a first try at
    solving this problem for someone else as well as myself. I'm open to
    better/easier/faster....

    Go to Edit>Preferences>Units&Rulers>Rulers and set to inches.

    Also, PS will default to the size of anything in your Clipboard when you do
    Ctrl-N, so if that is NOT the size you will want, you will need to Purge the
    clipboard, or be prepared to set the size to other than the image in the
    Clipboard.
