Need to resize photo to specific size in Photoshop Elements 11

Feb 26, 2013 9:54 PM

I have a photo that is 1500 x 800 that I want to use in Facebook for the cover photo. The cover photo size is 851 x 315. In PSE Editor / Image / Resize, I change the 1500 to 851 but the height changes to 454.

 

Is there a way to get the height to 351?

    You may resize without keeping aspect ratio in consideration. <constraint proportions checkbox>

     

    Please see http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/getting-started/resize-photo s.html to know more.

    After doing the resize, you can choose to do File >> Save As and then choose PNG from the Types dropdown in Save dialog.

    Alternatively you can choose to do File >> Save As and then reduce the quality of saved file by bringing the quality slider down. This quality dialog will appear once you have done Save as JPEG.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Texanno

    When you specify the height and width you want, you can at the same time specify the dpi.  Yours is probably something like 240 dpi.  All that is required for the web is a jpeg of 72dpi (and I understand for Facebook).

    So change it to that.  Should more than fix your file size limit.

    Cheers

    Jim
