Using Photoshop to Resize Photos for Cascade CMS

  1. Download the template size from below.
  2. Click on the desired photo size below to open a Photoshop template. (Ex. 400 x 600 pixels) The file will open in a Photoshop tab.
  3. Go to the File menu to open a photograph you wish to resize; it will open a second tab in Photoshop.
  4. In this tab, click Select > All (Ctrl+A on a PC) and copy it (Ctrl C).
  5. Go to the tab with the template and paste the photo into the space (Ctrl V).
  6. Edit the image by clicking on Edit>Transform
  7. Grab the corners of the image while HOLDING THE SHIFT KEY (so it stays proportional), to size and position the image as you would like. Important: If your image is smaller than the window, that indicates that the resolution is too small to use and you will need to find the original or use a different image. If the image is an original, it is likely going to be huge and it will take repeated steps to size it down.
  8. Once you like the position/crop, Click File > Export > Save for Web (Legacy), choose JPEG (high) and save.

Note: Please name your photo without spacing or use dashes. You may keep the image # for reference, but add a quick description (ex: img123-fall-calendar2019.jpg)
