I have a number of die cuts I need to scan and reduce by 60%. I know I can do it by going into Resize and just changing the numbers for height and width, and making sure they are proportionate. However, I was wondering if there was another way to do it to get it to exactly 60% smaller.
(I'm so old, I remember working in a newsroom where the graphic designers had some kind of wheel that they turned that helped them resize the photos...)

Try this instead: 1. Go to File>new>blank file and enter the dimensions for your canvas (8.5"x11"), resolution 200 px/in, background to suit. 2. Go to File>Place and point to Image #1. Place. This will come in on a separate layer. Use the corner handle of the bounding box to resize the image, and position it. 3. Repeat for images 2 & 3. At this stage you should have 4 layers,
hatstead, Thanks very much for your quick reply. Do you mean the pixels dimensions or the document size drop downs?
Because I tried both, and ended up with teeny tiny images, like way too small. Here is my original scan, three images on one 8.5" x 11" sheet at 200 dpi, saved as BMP. I'm not sure if I was clear in my original post, but I need them to each be 60% smaller.
