CS2 cropping precisely

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Csaba & Ildikó, Jul 24, 2009.

  1. It might be an easy one, I don't know.
    How to cut an image exactly in half, or exactly where you want, at specific
    pixels?
    Like, having a 6MP image, which is 2000 X 3000, I want to cut it and have
    two separate image files. Both 2000 X 1500.
    Any idea?

    Thanks.

    Just open the image twice and crop it 2 different ways. The drop too can
    be adjusted precisely to the dimensions you want.

    try this ----

    press Ctrl+R, go to View,- Snap to Grid, View, -Show Guides, drag a
    Guide out from the left Rulers to the 1500 pixel mark.

    Now press M and make a selection of 2000x1500 px. press Ctrl+Shift+J.
    This puts that selection to a new Layer(you should have 2 Layers now).
    All you have o do mow is select each layer and make new files from
    them(Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+N,Enter, Ctrl+V).

    HTH and get used to keyboard shortcuts : ]

    Here's another way:
    Image > Canvas size > 2000 X 1500
    -click the icon that shows where it crops from center or sides
