How to resize photos with the crop tool

In my post entitled explanation of toolbox in photoshop, I have already mentioned that the crop tool serves to cut an image/photo. So, automatically we can also change the size of the image/photo. The steps to change the size of photos using the crop tool are as follows:

  • Open the Photoshop program and open the image/photo file via the File menu -> Open.
  • Or you can also right-click on the image you want to change the image then click Open with -> Adobe Photoshop
  • Click the Crop Toll icon (1) in the Toolbox, (if it doesn’t appear to click the Window menu -> Option)
  • When clicked, the crop limit (2) will automatically appear on the edge of the image/photo.
  • Then specify the image size in the Options bar column (3). For example, in the example below, we would change the size to 4×3 cm. Fill in the size as desired (see the size of the photo commonly used).
  • Adjust the position of the image by clicking on the photo area and sliding it. We can also rotate images, how to place the cursor outside the drawing area but still in the window then click and slide as desired.
  • If it is as you wish, press Enter or click the finish button in the upper right corner.
  • To save it, go to the File menu -> Save for web.

Okay, so for the tutorial this time. Thank you for reading and hope this article is useful for friends who are studying Photoshop.
