Photoshop: How to resize an image in PS (any version)

Tutorial: Photoshop: How to resize on image in PS (any version)

Here's a short screencast I prepared a little while ago that show how one goes about resizing an image using Photoshop. I used CS5 for this screencast, but the process can be used in any version of Photoshop more or less.

This screencast shows you how to resize and then re-save the image, by reducing the x-y pixel dimensions, and thus significantly reducing the overall file size.

Re: Photoshop: How to resize on image in PS (any version)

Good stuff but a little fast, I'm a Pro guitar player who like many has turned to teaching to supplement gigs and sessions (20 years now)
I'm naturally quite a fast speaker and one think I've learned above all is to just slow down a little, no need to over explain and get pedantic but just put a couple of beats between everything.

Use the pause key... easy!

What you may find pedantic, others may find useful. I have found when doing online training and preparing screencasts that being a pedant is a good thing.

Re: Photoshop: How to resize an image in PS (any version)

I'm a pedant of some repute. . . . . . . actually my point was more that this video could be MORE pedantic, the rhythm is off. . .
I'm just suggesting a beat between sentences or maybe points made) and when completing an action in the software demo, of course it is possible to pause but the flow of a piece of instruction, particularly when the instructor is not present to interact is unlikely to be interrupted by the recipients who tend to remain in a passive mode. It wasn't a big deal, just felt a little rushed and a shame in what is a really useful video.
Actually I've just realised that you are probably a musician too, think of it as a piece of music, put some rests in!!

Haha... class reply... you are spot on actually, I am an amateur musician. Brass too, and we're known for rushing hehe.

I do take your point, absolutely, and didn't mean to come across as short in my reply, but sometimes that happens in web type post thingies!!

In actual fact, when I record screencasts I do tend to waffle a bit, and usually either cut some of the waffle out or simply re-record it but at a faster than I did the first cut pace...

I shall take your points on board when creating the next one(s).

I have experience of Classical musos from my 13 years teaching at Epsom College but playing would be Jazz/Soul/RnB, mind you as far as I can tell you're all reprobates!!
