I am a beginner designer.
Many times, when I download an image (from Shutterstock, for example), and then place that image in my document in Photoshop, the placed image in my document is smaller than the image that I downloaded. For example, I download an image that is 1000px by 1000px. (And when I open that image with Windows Photo Viewer, I can see that those are the dimensions.)
Then I place the same image in a Photoshop document, and the image dimensions are smaller! (Just to be sure, I tried opening a document with the dimensions that the image is supposed to have, and the image does not take up the entire canvas.)
This is a problem, because I then have to enlarge the image, so it becomes blurry.
Any suggestions? This happens to me all the time!
