I have a quick question.... Why if I have a photo cropped to 8 x 10 in PS, and if I resize the print to a 5x7 for printing, why does it not let me go to 5x7 without resizing to some odd size? exp. 7x5.6 or 5x6.25? Oh and I do have constrain proportions checked. if I uncheck it it seems to distort the image. Just came here for a quick answer instead of digging through all kinds of books! Thanks as always for all the help! This site is the best one I ever came across for photography!!!

Because the aspect ratio is different. If you take an 8x10 image and shrink it down to where the 8" side is 5", then if you do the math, the 10" side has no choice but to be 6.25"

That is just the way it is. It is a pain in the butt, but the way I get around it is to not crop until the end...work on the full image and save the full uncropped image. That way, you will have alittle more flexiblity when you need to crop to different sizes.

So if I want to print my 8x10 image as is, onto 5x7 paper how do I do it with out changing the original image? I no this sounds dumb, but when I try to size the print thats the problem i'm having. I now I'm missing something simple. Thanks.

resize or crop??? Since 8x10 and 5x7 are not the same dimensionally something has to be either added or cut if the full image is to be kept. If the crop tool is being used (best) crop full frame and then shring the image and drag the framing box out until the image is fully enclosed and you will see that you have added to the top and bottom (or however you positioned the crop box).

yea, I cropped the orginal with the crop tool, to a 8x10, but I want to just print it on 5x7 paper, I am happy with the cropping, and do not want anymore cropped, just want to size the print size.

what he is saying is it is to late
The only way to make a 5x7 out of a 8x10 is you HAVE to crop it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

you don't HAVE to crop it... you could leave sloppy borders.
