Create a Specific Size Photo

Sometimes we need a photo cropped to a precise size to submit for a publication, for example, a magazine article or ad.  For this demonstration, let's say the publication has asked for a photo that must be sized to 2"x3" at 300 dpi.

Although the Image Editor does not have the tools to do this, I have a technique that accomplishes this easily in the Print Shop.  Start by creating a Custom Project.  Name the new paper stock and enter the Width and Height dimensions.

1

Click Save, and the new paper stock appears in the list of available stock. Click Create to open a new project with this size paper. 

2

Add your photo to the workspace.

3

Resize the photo to fill the 2x3 area.  Anything outside this area will be cropped off.

4

Under the Home tab, click JPEG to save this project as a JPEG file.

5

Choose the highest quality and 300 dpi, and Continue.

 6

Give your new JPEG file a name and save it in a location that will be easy to find.  Do not overwrite your original file.

Your new file is ready for online submission.
