Submitted by michelle_chang on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 17:40
Hello Everyone! Here's quick tutorial on how to format your awesome images for submission to the CoolCalifornia Challenge Green Media Resources.
First open Photoshop and click on the 'File' tab then 'Open' to select an image from your library.
Once the image appears, you want to crop and re-size it to 150 x 150 square pixels. You do this by clicking on the crop tool (keyboard shortcut 'c') on the left hand side bar. You'll notice that a dotted box will appear in your image.
Next, go to the drop down menu of crop options located directly under the 'Edit' and 'Image' tabs. Select '1 x 1 (Square)' and to the right, input 150px x 150px for the two adjacent boxes.
If you want to reposition the focus of your image, use the arrow keys move the image as desired.
Finally, press enter or click on the arrow symbol in the upper right hand corner of the screen to confirm crop operation.
And that's it!
If you are unsatisfied with your crop, there's always the underlined undo symbol you can click on to reset.
Happy cropping and keep the images coming! :)
