Photoshop Cropping Images to size

With the Crop Tool selected, Click and Drag over the image.
Release when you've selected the part of the image you want to keep. Don't worry about getting it just right, you can always go back and edit it.

You will have a dashed line with little squares (selection handles) around the dashed line. This enables you to edit the selection by mousing over them and dragging in either direction to increase or decrease your selection.

By default, Photoshop will mask out the area that is not part of the selection. You can turn this on or off by going up top to the Options Bar and selecting/deselecting Shield Cropped Area.

To rotate move your cursor over one of the 4 corners until you see it change into a double sided arrow.

Cropping Images to specific size

Better to use the guidelines or use 'fixed size' options in your Marquee selections tools.

TIP: When using the fixed size option selection tool, type the value including the following code:

EG: '120px' or 120cm or 120in in the width and height fields. The result will actually look like 120 px or 120 cm. Do not add a space when entering the amount, Photoshop will complete this automatically. Also works when manipulating HTML.

Then when the section of your image is selected, cut and paste into a new file. Your image will be specific in size and output.

TIP: Throughout our site, when you see a small image, click to view more details about signs banners, laser, LED, letters and over 300 products for business advertising outdoors and indoors.
