"That sounds all well and good, but how do I do that?" Never fear, we're here to help:
- Click on Basic Edits effects tab (the top-most icon on the left).
- Select the "Crop" tool
- Check the box labeled "Scale photo"
- Enter the number of pixels you want the photo to be (from the table above)
- Adjust the crop area to include the portion of the image you want to print
The numbers in the above table are derived by multiplying the inches of your intended print by 300. Fr'instance, for a 4x6 print you multiply the 4 by 300 to get 1200, and the 6 by 300 to get 1800.
For those of you using this metric system thing we keep hearing about, multiply the number of centimeters by 118.11.
If the size you want isn't on our chart, dust off the ol' calculator!
