What am I doing wrong?  Coming from Photoshop (where it is very different and so much easier) I thought I finally had Resize Canvas figured out.  Got it to work as desired several times yesterday using the exact same steps below.  Today, using those steps, I get equal amounts added to the vertical sides, nothing added to the horizontal edges.


Document > Resize Canvas

Click on lock to unlock

Change pixels to Inches

Click on Center of Anchor


Click in 1st size box  29.88 in + 1 in

Hit Return…now reads 30.88

Click in 2nd size box…36.47 + 1 in

Hit Return…now reads 37.47

Click on Resize


And I get the amount added only to the vertical edges.  The only difference between today and yesterday is that I did do a crop on this image.  Is that the problem today?


And is there a simpler, better, easier (any of those) way to add equal amounts (specified in amount of inches) to each side of an image?  I want to create a color-fillable mat around my background layer.  I don't mind changing the way I do things…if I could just determine what I need to change them to.


Help, please?
