Hi I hope someone can help me with this.
I take pics for a friends website and all the images need to be the same size. the problem I am having is I need to crop all the images and then re size them I have to use the constrain proportion option other wise the koi look deformed . long and thin or fat.
so is there away of making sure all the cropped images are the same size before resizing?.
it doesnt matter if some of the pics have more back ground then others.
here are 2 x examples of different size images.






here is a link to the website and as you can see the problem.

I try and stick to 750 wide when resizing.
any other useful tips to make the images stand out will be greatly received.

feel free to play around and repost

thanks in advance Rick

Select the crop tool and at the top you'll see a space to enter the size/ratio of the crop. Enter some numbers there and you'll crop to the same ratio each time, then when you re-size the images will all end up the same size.

CS2? Yes.

If it's a different version then why not try the crop tool and see if the size values appear?
