Sizing images for import to Adobe Premiere - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I have many digital images in 3.3 megapixel format (2048x1536) that I want to import into Adobe Premiere at a size of 720x540. I can resize an untouched image to 720x540 easily, as the aspect ratio converts perfectly to this size. However, with images that have been rotated or cropped, is there a way to create a mask or template that I can move over the image and would indicate a 720x540 area that could be cropped? I'm a newbie with Photoshop and any suggestions are greatly appreciated. FYI... If the images are imported into Premiere as they are, the ...

    Default Sizing images for import to Adobe Premiere

    I have many digital images in 3.3 megapixel format (2048x1536) that I want to import into Adobe Premiere at a size of 720x540. I can resize an untouched image to 720x540 easily, as the aspect ratio converts perfectly to this size.

I'm a newbie with Photoshop and any suggestions are greatly appreciated. FYI... If the images are imported into Premiere as they are, the exported video images are distorted when Premiere places them in a 720x540 window. Thanks.

    Ernie,

    Just create a new blank doent at the size you want and fill the background with Black. Then Resize the image to 540 high, keeping the same resolution and constraining proportions. Then just drag the layer of the resize image to the new doent and center it on the black background.

    Ernie,

    The way I crop all of my images before taking them to Costco is via the
    rectangular marquee, with the Style set to Fixed Size, and the Width/Height
    set to 4x6 in.

    When I click in the image, I get a pre-measured marquee which I can then
    move around to select the part of the image I want. Then Image->Crop on the
    menu.

    You can set the units in Width/Height as px, as well as in.

    Don't know if that's what you're asking for, so apologies in advance if I
    misunderstood.

    Ernie, another way to do this is to use the rectangular marquee tool with
    the Style option on the toolbar set to Fixed Aspect Ratio. If you set 4
    height and 3 width, when you drag out the rectangle it will hold that ratio.
    When you get what you want, hit Image>Crop and you're back to the correct
    dimensions for downsizing to 720x540 (or 540x720....).
