Locket size photo - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Hey all, I need to print a locket (probably 1/2" x 3/4" oval) sized picture from a 4 x 6 scanned photo. The part of the picture I need is actually just the head and shoulders of the subject. What's the best way for me to do this? What settings should I use to scan with (Epson 1650 Photo scanner) and how should I resize the picture after I crop it in PSE (I'm going to do an oval crop). Boy, it's been so long since I've used PSE 2 that I can't remember where to start! :-) Thanks. Joe...

    Default Re: Locket size photo

    If the area of the picture you want to use is already *same or larger
    physical size* than the final size for the locket, just scan approximate
    area of pic (or whole thing if you want) at 300ppi. Then crop and
    resize/downsample to exact size you need at 300ppi and print.
