resizing to 4Wx6H or 5Wx7H confussion - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I am able to re size my image to either 4H x 6W or 5H x 7W. how do I make either a 4W x 6H or a 5W X 7H. the original image I am working with is 28.44W x 21.33H (2048 x 1536) when I change the resolution to 330 it gives me an image of 6.2W x 4.6H. no matter how i play with this i am unable to get a 4Hx6W, or a 5Hx7W pic. maybe i am suffering from brain freeze tonight but fo rthe life of me i can't figure it out....

    Yup, maybe brain freeze. If I understand the question correctly, either you're going to have to crop quite a bit of that photo, or it was taken with your camera held sideways.

    If your camera was held sideways, it's easy - you open the image on your screen, do a Command A to select the whole photo, and then go to Image>Rotate, and choose to turn it either 90 degrees left or 90 degrees right. Somehow I don't think that's what you want, though. So...

    Your original image is wider than it is high. In order to make it higher than it is wide, you'll have to keep reducing the resolution until you get that "short" side long enough to become the "long" side. Once you get a 4 inch high image stretched out to 6 inches high, you'll have to crop off the excess from one or both sides. You'd do this the same way you size for a 4 X 6, but reverse the dimensions in the Option Bar.

    OK, so if neither of those fit the bill, give me some more clues. :)

    George, what you're observing is that the 'aspect ratio' (relative
    dimensions) of your pictures as they leave the camera is 4-by-3, i.e. the
    long side is 4 units to the short side's 3 units. The closest you can come
    to a 4x6 is 4.5x6 and the math for 5x7 is similar. What you have to do to
    get an exact 4x6 or 5x7 is crop (remove) part of your image. If you have a
    4.5 by 6, you're going to have to get rid of a half-inch strip the length of the picture; then you'll have a 4x6. Cropping is painful sometimes,
    though - you might really not want to get rid of part of your image to make
    it fit those standard dimensions. But if you absolutely, positively have to
    have a 4x6 or a 5x7, cropping is in your future...

    what i did was to resize the image at 250, which is 8.192W x 6.144H then when i select the marque tool, fixed size set to 4W x 6H, then crop. worked like i wanted it to.

    George, that's a fine approach. You could also do it using the marquee
    tool, with it set to Fixed Ratio 4 and 3, then Image<Crop. The resultant
    image would be in the right ratio, then you could go into Image<Resize<Image
    Size and change the long dimension to 6 inches and the short dimension would
    snap to 4 inches. That approach allows you to keep as much of the image as
    you want at the proper ratio.

    But your approach works too!
