    Hi, I'm trying to make a load of different images ALL the same size. Now because some are differently proportioned I would like to select just a part of that image, usually losing some of the border. Trouble is, when I use the square selection tool in PSP9 if it's in the wrong place when I try to move it it alters the image. What I want to do is move the selection area around until I place it exactly on the image before I do "Edit>Copy".

    any thoughts please?

    cheers, Lol

    Photoshop will also work for this purpose. What you'll want to do is use a fixed aspect ratio corresponding to the final proportions of your image. For example, if your final image is 100 x 100 pixels, your aspect ratio would be 100:100 (or for the ratio-experienced, 1:1).

    Well I've got a SORT of system going but it's long winded. In Fireworks I resize the image with the width (the critical dimension) set to 900px. I then use the rectangular select tool, select an area of the image 900x600 px, 600 px being the desired height. I can then move the area I want to select by dragging it with one of the corners. Once in place I copy and paste to a new canvas of 900x600 px dimensions.
    Only problem is, Fireworks will only save in .png format which is huge and I want .jpg. Thus I have to re-open the .png file in Paint Shop Pro 9 and re-save as a jpg.
    Long winded! If I could figure out how to move the area to copy without affecting the image in PSP9 I would be a lot happier!

    Again, you can do all of that in Photoshop without having to use anything else.

    Step 1: determine your aspect ratio.
    Step 2: set it using the rectangular marquee tool.
    Step 3: use rectangular marquee tool to select your area.
    Step 4: Go to Image-->Crop to crop to the selected area.
    Step 5: Go to Image-->Image Size to resize your image to the dimensions you want.

    It's pretty easy once you're used to it, and I'm not a graphics guy by nature.

    I thought of suggesting a batch file or some other automated processing, but Lol mentioned that this applies to a selection of the image, which suggests some cropping of extraneous elements, although I may have misread the post.

    I usually just create a mask of the size I want the final image (or images) to be, then I unlink the mask and move the image around until I find the position I like.
