    Default how to resize photo in PS

    lets say i got a photo 1024 X 768

    and i wanna resize it to 1024 X 600

    but when i use image resize it seems like it will make my photos seems out of shape (the image)

    Alternatively, you can select Cropping tool, fill in 1024 and 600 in the width, height fields. After that, regardless of how you crop, you'll always get that size with the correct ratio.

    Hope this helps.

    Just wanna to know whether this method will degrade the quality of the photo...
    Let's say I have a 1024x768 pic, I wanna to crop about 3/4 of the pic to 1024x768 also... Will this decrease the no. of pixels/in(degrade the quality of the photo)??

    yes it will.. u're essentially enlarging the photo then chopping it off back to size.

    will changing the Canvas size distort the image?

    If you specify a smaller canvas size, PS will crop the image to whatever size you specify. Whereas if you specify a bigger canvas size, PS will add on some space using your current active background colour to the image. Don't think there will be any distortion, since no resampling involved.
