Computer Upgrade Photos Are Stretched

Recommended Posts

Transferred photos from windows 7 to new PC using windows 10, but photos are stretched wider.

 

if it helps old PC (windows 7) has Intel(R) G41 chipset.          New one windows 10, has Intel (R) HD Graphics.

Also tried settings > personalization > choose a fit ........stretch was changed to 'fit' but had no effect.

 

thanks for reading :)

Not 100% sure what you mean. Are you taking about viewing images through the Photos app? You mention setting the backdrop, is this what you mean? You'll want Center or Fill to stop the aspect ration being changed I believe?

Another option might be for you to try scaling the image in GIMP to that of your desktop and save as a new image - see if that hellps.

Sorted thanks.

 

there seems to be a few having the same problem when i look for solutions via google.

Windows suggested what I tried to a another guy.

 

However, my new PCs screen resolution was set to 1280x1024, not 1366x760 as recommended from the available resolutions.

 

Thanks for your help Probedb & swarfendor437. maybe your suggestions will assist others.
