Cream of the Crop: cropping and resizing > Resizing Digital Camera Photos

Resizing Digital Camera Photos

If you’re more familiar with resizing scanned images, you’ll find that resizing images from digital cameras is a bit different, primarily because scanners create high-resolution scans (usually 300 ppi or more), but the default setting for most digital cameras usually produces an image that is large in physical dimension, but lower in ppi (usually 72 ppi). The trick is to decrease the physical size of your digital camera image (and increase its resolution) without losing any quality in your photo. Here’s the trick:

Step One

Open the digital camera image that you want to resize. Press Control-R to make Elements’ rulers visible. Check out the rulers to see the approximate dimensions of your image. As you can see from the rulers in the example here, this photo is around 13x9".
