They are 5616x3744. The attached photo was from camera. I had to put different dimensions because it would not attach to this forum. All I did to it was change it to 1200x800.

Not even looking at the attachment. It looked stretched.

OK, here we go.
Your upload should have been 1200x850, not 1200x800. If you entered 1200 as your desired width, your editor should have selected 850 height automatically.

I will have to look at that when I get home in the morning. I am not sure if it is 800 or 850.

If I resize my 1200x850 version to your 1200x800, it looks exactly like what RP rejected.

You can't resize a 1200x850 to 1200x800 without changing the aspect ratio, which trashes the shot because out of proportion.

You can only crop a 1200x850 to 1200x800 and have it be suitable for RP (or for anything else, really).

Bingo!
Exactly why RP rejected the shot in question. (As well as other stretched shots discussed in other threads.)

When I put 1200 in for width the height automatically goes to 800.

Proportions look right. (A little too dark, perhaps?)

Resize by percentage to a 1200 x 800 template and you'll never have any issues.

How do I check the proper ratio box in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.0?
