You cannot export portrait and landscape images to the same width in Picture Manager


View products that this article applies to.

Symptoms

In Microsoft Office Picture Manager, when you export two images of different orientations (one is landscape, the other is portrait), the longest side of each image is reduced to the longest resize resolution that is specified, even if the longest side of the image is not the width (landscape) but, instead the height (portrait) of the image.

Cause

This problem occurs if you choose one of the fixed resolution settings (by using the Export using this size feature) or click the Resize link, and then enter a custom width x height--for example, 400x300.
