How to Crop and Re-size in Photoshop

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.

How to Crop an Image to a Square in Adobe Photoshop CS5

Here at the CoolCalifornia Challenge, our standard newsletter image size is 150 x 150 pixels. But what if you've found an image that is significantly larger than 150 x 150 pixels? You may want to use that image in the future, in a larger size and higher resolution. In Adobe Photoshop CS5, it's possible to crop an image into a square without specifying pixel size or resolution, giving you a high quality image (which can also be scaled down to 150 x 150 pixels for a newsletter).
