Losing resolution as I shrink photos to make a collage

I am creating a collage of about 20 photos on an 8x10 page.

As I have shrunk the photos to about 2x1.5 inches, the resolution of each has deteriorated to the point where they are very pixelated. See attached.

What am I doing wrong?

How can I shrink the photos but maintain their resolution?

Using PSE18

Thanks,

The easiest way to accomplish this is to use the crop tool. On the crop tool's option bar enter the H&W and resolution in px/in. Note that for printing it is desirable to have the resolution in the 240-300 px/in range, although I have printed successfully at a lower value. For web work, 72 px/in range.

On your display I don't see evidence of pixellation. but I'm looking at a monitor.

Also, suggest that you make the resolution of the canvas the same value as that of the individual picture files.

Let us know how you make out.
