How to resize photos in an album

Jan 26, 2013 5:48 AM

Once a photo has been imported into an album, how do you resize the photo?


I am using PSE primarily for photos to my website and the photos need to be within a specific size. So when I import directly from my camera into an album, I need to check the size of each photo and edit the size before going to my website.

    You can use the crop tool, in Editor and in Organizer. Where is the problem? Please provide more information.

    If you want to batch process multiple picture files, do the following:


    Place the pictures in a source folder

    Open another (empty) folder which will be the destination folder

    In PSE full Editor, open the pictures in the source folder

    Go to File>process multiple files. In the dialog under Image Size enter the pixel dimentsions, resolution 72px/in. You may, or may not, want to constrain proportions.

    Ok it and point to the destination folder


    For an individual picture, go to File>save for web

    Under New Size, enter the pixel dimensions

    Near the top, change the default "GIF" to "JPEG"


    I prefer to crop the individual pictures manually, esp. since you will be going from a rectangular configuration to a square one. Usually there is some unimportant information that can be cropped away without a deleterious outcome

    Make the crop tool active, and enter the w & h fields in pixels and resolution 72px/in, then drag the crop shield around to suit.


    Try it all out on a few dummy picture files. We will be looking for your progress.

    This user wants cropping of her photos, making them square.


    Process multiple files will not do this. It cannot perform a crop.


    Cropping is the only way to get there, and making sure that the desired elements of the photo remain inside the cropped area.

    Cropping and resizing are not the same thing. Unfortunately the terms are used indiscriminately by the uninitiated.


    Texanno1 can resize picture files if desired, and, as pointed out, crop to a square,
