Sizing A Photograph

Here's how to make a photograph smaller for online presentation

1 Open Photoshop

2 Go to the “Image” menu

3 Choose “Image size” and a window will open named “Image Size”

4 Go to the “Document Size box

5 If the size is displayed in anything but inches, use the pull down menus to change the width and height to inches and the resolution to pixels/inch

6 All 3 of the boxes below this should be checked

7 Change the long side to 5. This will change the other dimension automatically. So if you change the width to 5, the height will change automatically

8 Change resolution to 72 and click on OK

9 Save the file as a jpg.
