Resize The Height, Width and Resolution Of An Image With The Adobe Photoshop CS Crop Tool - Page 2


Step 2. Choose what part of the original image to crop. Now I need to evaluate my image and decide what part of the image I can crop. Can I remove some of the height of the image by cropping the top or bottom? Can I remove some of the width of the image by cropping the sides? First I decided to remove all of the border around the image. Next, I want the door and the little characters in front of the door to be my center of interest. So I decide that I can crop the image on the sides but I will not crop any of the bottom or top of the image except for the border. (Example 3) Because the image will be used on the web, I will also need to reduce the image resolution from 200 ppi to 72 ppi.


Example 3
Area To Be Croppped Is Darkened
600 x 600 pixels, 200 ppi



Step 3. Crop the image. Click on the Crop tool icon in the Toolbox. Photoshop can automatically crop the image and change the resolution of the image (resample) to 72 ppi in one step. I must first set the required dimensions and resolution in the Options bar. If the Height and Width measurements in the Options bar are displayed in inches, click on the Front Image button on the Options bar to change to pixels. Set the Width to 150 pixels, Height to 200 pixels and the Resolution to 72 pixels/inch.

Next you will disable the Snapping feature. If Snapping is enabled there will be a check mark next to Snap on the View menu. Click View > Snap and the check mark will be removed indicating that Snapping is now disabled.

Now I am ready to crop my image. Click and drag on the image to draw a rectangular marquee. You do not need to be precise because the program will automatically draw a marquee that is 150 x 200 pixels. As you can see in Example 3, the area that will be removed is darkened. If the marquee is not positioned correctly, just click inside the marquee area and drag to reposition. When you are ready, double click inside the marquee to complete the crop. The area to be cropped will be removed and the image will have the correct dimensions (150 x 200 pixels). It will also be resampled to the correct resolution (72 ppi). (Example 4) Now I am ready to optimize (save) my image for the web.
Note: Reducing an image considerably can cause it to become blurred. If your image is blurred, click Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen.

Example 4
Finished Image
150 x 200 pixels, 72 ppi
