Cropping/Resizing

Hi all,

 

Saying up front that this will be a dumb question...  I have Photoshop 2024.  NO idea how to use it.  Many, many years ago, when I dabbled in photography, I had an older version of PS and could use it for the very basics...  Pretty much starting over.

 

I have TONS of photos of kids/etc that Wifey wants to print, so we went out and bought a Canon Pro 200.

 

Of course, not looking for anything professional here, just decent enough to frame and mount.  Now, when I load up a photo that's God-only-knows how large, if I want to crop that to, say, 8x10 inches, how do I do it?!

 

I recently tried and what I ended up with was a blown up image of one of my kids' eyeballs.

 

*SIGH* SMH

 

Thanks!

Hi, here are the help files on the topic. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/crop-straighten-photos.html

basically, you select the tool, set up the desired size in the option bar(change ratio to h x w x résolution, use 8"x10" at 200 or 300 ppi, then drag the marquee to the area you want to crop, commit.

When the Crop tool is selected, the Crop tool presets menu in the options bar includes an 8 : 10 aspect ratio option. If you choose W x H x Resolution instead, in the options bar fields you can enter 8 by 10 inches at the ppi resolution you want.
