This is probably a dumb question to many of you, but I would like to know how you can size a photo to an exact 8x10 or 5x7...ect., without distortion. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

You shoot for it. Unless you KNOW your going to be shooting for web output, or a print size that is an EXACT ratio of your digital camera output, then you have to give yourself enough space around the image to allow you to crop to the desired output size you want.

Assuming you left enough space for the crop when shooting, cropping in photoshop is very easy.

Select the crop tool, and then put in the exact size you want. Its up in the crop too settings just below the menu bar. You can even interpolate resolution there too ( I do that later ).

Hope that helps.

The same way you would size a print from film output in the darkroom. 8X10 and 5X7 have different aspect ratios. If you are trying to size from one aspect ratio to another then you have to determine where you want the cropping to be made.

Murray,

And if like me you dont have the sizing right there is a program called genuine fractals.... if I have one not sized right...it allows you to blow it up and I usually set one side to be what I want and crop to fit the needed size. While this isnt the "optimum" way it has kept me form haivng to throw away images while I learn.

Also nice to do is to turn on the rulers - click on the view drop down menu and select rulers, it will put a ruler along either side of the image. As chip said when you select the crop tool you can select the width and height, this will allow you to drag the crop selection out to the maximum size you specified and then you can drag that 8x10 selection around your image to keep just the part of the image you want.
