10.3: Non-square Shots? No.
Authored by: rayola on Feb 11, '04 05:30:24PM

No, this poster is just plain wrong, at least about Apple being at fault. One of the new features of Photoshop CS is support for non-squre pixels, for working with the 1.1 pixel ratio of MiniDV and such formats. It's meant for broadcast. Sometimes, but not always, (haven't figured out exactly why it only happens sometimes) Photoshop CS will open your screen grabs with the non-square pixel preset turned on. Which I consider quite a misfeature, because obviously your screen uses square pixels. Unless you've still got a Lisa going...

Hopefully Adobe will fix this in a PS CS updater, cause it gets a little annoying. You can go to Image > Pixel Ratio > Square to correct the problem if it's happening to you.
