Re: Image resizing and resolution question

I'm using the crop tool to ensure that it is the exact size that I want.

Re: Image resizing and resolution question

When using the crop tool, are you entering the width, height, and resolution, or just the w & h?

Just the width and height. Wow, I never thought to enter a dpi number! Isn't that adding pixels that aren't really there if I keep cropping down?

Re: Image resizing and resolution question

If you do not enter a resolution, PS will try not to discard any pixels. So if your new size is smaller than the existing size, PS will just redistribute your pixels which is why a 16.1 x 10.7 @ 240 dpi will become a 8 x 12 x 322 dpi. So always enter your resolution.
Time for me to get a few hrs of shut eye.
