photoshop cs2 adjustment

Hi, after years of trying, I have finally persuaded my cousin to retire his 19 inch crt Iiyama monitor and get one of the new Asus VX24AH ips led 2560X1440. Unfortunately he can at present only connect with D-SUB which restricts him to 1920X1080. This is a temporary problem as I have a suitable graphics card and HDMI high speed cable to fit when I go to see him on Friday. The aspect ratio needs adjusting and he hasn't been able to get it right. I can't help him as I don't know anything about CS2. My method would be to uninstall CS2 and then reinstall it and hope it worked. Any tips would be much appreciated.

Maybe I'm not understanding the problem, but 1920X1080 is the same aspect ratio as 2560X1440, so nothing should get stretched.

What do you mean the aspect ratio needs adjusting? Its 1920X1080, as you said. Later, when you get the new card and HDMI cable, it will be 2560X1440. What is the actual problem? What does CS2 have to do with any of this?

If I remember correctly with Windows you need to install the profile for the monitor - should be supplied on CD with the monitor or download from Asus. Then go into the WIndows Control Panel and run the Adobe Gamma control. Load the monitor profile from there and run the calibration. Save the calibrated profile and that should do it.

Still needs more clarification. What exactly is going wrong and why is it apparently specific to photoshop?

Display resolution and aspect configuration shouldn't matter in Photoshop as you can resize the Windows how ever you want them.

The old crt was probably 1280X960. My cousin complained that everything was stretched sideways on the new screen. I told him his aspect ratio was wrong and he found some controls in photoshop which control it. I have to assume that he adjusted the basic resolution in Windows to 1920X1080.

Never assume ANYTHING!!

For the OP: After making sure that the appropriate pixel resolution is chosen for the OS, do a little Google work. I would help you directly, but am not a Photoshop user. I Googled "photoshop cs2 aspect ratio" and got a number of resources with instructions for managing that setting.

What version of Windows is he using? How is the new screen connected - VGA, DVI or something else? I get the feeling he's on an oldish version of Windows.

All was revealed when I got my hands on the actual pc. He hadn't set the resolution in Windows to 1920X1080. Photoshop now gives an exact 3:2 image. The story doesn't end happily yet because of more problems. The Nvidia GT610 which I fitted was dead, nothing with D-sub or HDMI. Of course, when I got it home, it worked perfectly. We went to the nearest PC World and bought a GT730 which could output 2560X1440 and it worked. Unfortunately, when loading the graphics drivers from the CD, a notice came up "operating system not supported", XP is being abandoned. The very small print on the box confirmed "Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1. I have a GTX750 ti less than 6 months old which does support XP onwards (and 10 tp) so I didn't think of looking. So back on the old graphics at 1920X1080 until the graphics is sorted. He may well be upgrading soon anyway, whether he likes it or not as some of the capacitors on the motherboard and one in the psu are starting to bulge. I could tackle the psu , but surface mounted ones on the motherboard are too much for me.
