Pdf export changes size when opened in photoshop

select 3.0089 inch wide object, export as pdf, open pdf in photoshop, use default settings, measure width,
its 2.382 inch.

try again, same.

try for .ai but pshop says cannot parse.

How should I get something into photoshop and retain size ?
I have used pdf before, I have also found that some parts of the project get repositioned and overlap other items when I open into pshop.


Hi Steve - when you save to pdf, make sure view and output scale is set to 1:1


Ah yes, it had not reverted to 1:1.
it was retracted and I didnt see it.
