I've recently purchased the D800 I moved up from the D300. Can I change the file size to 4500 x 4500 pixels after the shots have been taken. I use CS5. Thanks in advance. Dan

Sounds like you actually want to set up a 1:1 crop and you can do that with the crop tool. You won't be able to automate it though since the desired crop area would change from photo to photo.....

Hey Dan,

Under the "Image" menu, select "Image Size", you can change the size of the photo all you want. I use this in my downsizing my shots for the web. In your case, you just want to make them somewhat smaller.

I hope that helps,

Jim

The more interesting question is: what are you trying to achieve with this change, and is that the best way to do it? Unless you are specifically printing in a 15" x 15" square format, there's no particular reason I can think of for that specific conversion to be advantageous.

Also - keep in mind that if you want square, you need to be thinking about that when you're taking the photo. If your subject fills the entire frame and you "force" it to be square when you change the image size, you'll end up with a pretty distorted image.

I posted these on August 13th.

As other's have said, you cannot program the camera to crop square. These are the available sizes, then crop from there.

FILE SIZES

14 bit:
FX 7360x4912 file size 38.8 mb
5:4 size 6144x4912 33 mb
1.2 size 6144x4080 27.8 mb
DX mode 4800x3200 17.2 mb

12 bit:
FX 7360x4912 file size 30.6 mb
5:4 size 6144x4912 25.9 mb
1.2 size 6144x4080 20.9 mb
DX mode 4800x3200 13.8 mb

I did not bother with the uncompressed. These were all lossless compressed.

For a square crop just use the crop tool and set it to 1:1. Then change the aspect ratio by going to image menue image size and putting the dimensions you want,

File size is the least of my concerns. The camera is a suckfest of softness once you add more than a few feet between you and the subject!

Sorry, just venting all over the place. Nikon needs to recall this camera and get them fixed. I have all of my lenses finetuned at about -15 and that works until I add about 15', then nothing in the frame is in focus...nothing has any sharp detail...and the amount of grain at 250 makes me vomit!

Return it if you have that many problems with it.

What's so hard about that?

I added a few feet between me and my subject this weekend - hot air ballooning. I'm a post processing dunce but I'm still stunned by the clarity and detail this camera provides. See this handheld takeoff shot and approximately 200% crop. Sounds like you got a dud. Have you sent it in to have them make it right?

So, to the OP, it's a cropper's dream
