Hi,

 

Noticed this a couple of days ago and finally took the time to look into it.  When I select "Fit within" as part of any Image Export Preset, Aperture is enlarging ("up-rezzing") Images that are smaller than the set parameters.  It does this with either JPG or TIFF specified.

 

Ex1:

Image size in Aperture: 4328 x 2441

Image export setting: TIFF, Fit within 5,000 x 5000 px.

Exported file image dimensions: 5000 x 2820

 

Ex2:

Image size in Aperture: 2941 × 4002

Image export setting: JPG, Fit within 8,000 x 8,000 px.

Exported file image dimensions:  5879 × 8000

 

This is not at all what I want or what I expect.

 

Can someone confirm that this is how it works with their installation?

Does it make sense?

Didn't it used to work "correctly" -- that is, to shrink as needed and never to enlarge?

 

Thanks.

I can confirm that is how it is working in the latest of both Aperture and OS.

 

I don't remember for sure how it use to work but not upsizing seems to ring a bell.

Kirby,

I checked on my Snowleopard machine with Aperture 3.2.4 - it also will blow up the the exported image when I use "fit within" on an image smaller than the specified size, exactly the same as with AP 3.4.3 on MacOS X 10.8.2.

 

I never noticed, when this did change. You might try the Trial, to check it Aperture 3.1.2 really was behaving differently.

 

Regards

Léonie

    Frank -- thanks for the speedy confirmation.  Much appreciated.

     

    .  Gah, that throws a monkey wrench in a workflow I use frequently.
