Cream of the Crop: cropping and resizing > Cropping to an Exact Custom Size

Cropping to an Exact Custom Size

Okay, now you know how to crop to Element’s built-in preset sizes, but how do you crop to a nonstandard size—a custom size that you determine? Here’s how.

Step One

Open the photo that you want to crop. (I want to crop this image to 6x4" at a resolution of 150 ppi.) First, press C to get the Crop tool. In the Options Bar, you’ll see fields for Width and Height. Enter the size you want for width, followed by the unit of measure you want to use (e.g., enter “in” for inches, “px” for pixels, “cm” for centimeters, “mm” for millimeters, etc.). Next, press the Tab key to jump over to the Height field and enter your desired height, again followed by the unit of measure.
