Have you tried changing the size of the image in Photoshop by going to Imae > Image size?
Thanks for your reply Sahil
I've managed to crack the first bit. It was the document size I needed to change. I changed the document size to 24% and it matches.
But I'm going to edit the image first before I change the document size I think.
I still can't crack the rotating thing, so I'm now trying to avoid rotating the image and just work on the edits on an awkward angle instead. I don't know how to get back to the original size after rotating it. When I rotate it, it adds on canvas and then when I rotate it back it adds on even more canvas.
To rotate an image you need to go to Edit > Free transform, then you will see a transform box appear around your image, you will be able to rotate the image by dragging it from any of the four corners.

In CS4 do you have the "rotate view tool"?
In my version it's located under the "hand" tool and
You can rotate the canvas instead of the image so you won't have the issues with the added canvas and can work at a comfortable angle. When you're done with the rotated canvas, just make sure you have that tool activated then press the escape button. It sounds like you may be using the crop tool to resize and rotate the document, and that you're working directly with a "background" layer. If you want to resize or rotate the image using the crop tool, right click on the "background" layer in your layer panel and choose "create layer from background" or you can double click on the locked background layer then click OK for the dialog box that comes up. That way when you crop, you don't have added color to your edges. Otherwise photoshop's default is to add the "background color" to compensate.
This is really helpful and I thank you very much.
Who knew that tool was hiding underneath there can't tell you how pleased I was to see that!
