. Anyways, I would crop say a 500x900 photo to 200x200, but then it would blow it up to a 1000x1800 photo.
These numbers are mystical. I don't understand how 200x200 fits in.
If you start with 500x900 and "blow it up" to 1000x1800, you haven't cropped, but rather you have enlarged.
If that is really what you wish to do, you need to resample. Even then, the picture may lose sharpness.
Go to Image>resize image size and work your way through this dialog.
What is the resolution of the file to start with?
So I have a 500x300 image, and I want to crop it into a square. But when I crop, it does crop into a square but the size of the image seems to be mysteriously increasing in size, so now it is a 1920x1920. I have included screenshots below. Both images are at 100% view/visibility.
Activate the Rectangular Marquee tool
On the tool's option bar, enter width & height that you desire.
Go to Image menu>Crop
That worked. Thank you very much.
You're welcome. Glad to help.
