Hi,

I would like to enquire how do I crop a photo, using Photoshop CS4, to a ratio of 3:2. This is to ensure that my photo print out in S8R can still be correct.

I saw some crop setting, e.g. Crop 4 inch x 6 inch 300 ppi, but wasn't sure which is the correct setting to maintain a ratio os 3:2.

Anyone can enlighten me?

Use basic maths. 4x6 inch is 2:3, which is 3:2 in portrait format.

so long as the long side/short side is 3/2 you're ok.

Longer side divided by 1.5 give ratio of 3:2.

6 / 1.5 = 4

Click on the cropping tool, type in 8in and 12in for the width and height and 300 for dpi, crop. You can save the settings for future use.
