How to resized still image.
I got still images that is 5184x3456 from my 60D. I want to resize it to 1920x 1080 in Photoshop CS5. I am having difficulty to do it correctly. Here is what I am trying to do.
1) Open CS5 and import a still image
2( Click on Image> drop down> Image Size
3) Width: 1920 Pixels
4) Height: 1280????? IF I enter 1080 Pixels, the width changed o 1620 why????
Can you guy give me the correct way to resize 1920x1080 so that I cam import that onto vegas with out the need to crop it.
Never mind.... I figure it out. I am good.
PS.. I am not good, I am still need help. I try Image Processor, resize to fit 1920x1080 but the results resized were 1620x1080 why why?????

Because the aspect ratio is different. To downsize to 1920x1080 you need to crop a bit of top and/or bottom.
Do the crop after downsizing to 1920 wide, and you're good.
Then, I see no point of resizing if I have to crop them after resized. I thought the surpose of resized to 1920x1080 so that I don't have to crop on the NLE.
5184x3456 is 3:2, 1920x1080 is 16:9. You can't fit a big square peg into a small rectangular hole, they teach you that in kindergarten. The purpose of resizing is so that you only have to crop the edges, not the entire picture.
Make a new document with your desired size (in this case 1920 x 1080) then open the picture and drag it into the new document. Now you can "pan & scan" and place it as you wish.
Your method do in fact give me 1920x1080 but there is a problem with a plain white or grid back ground I do not want. I want the image to be 1920 x1080, no back ground what so ever. In Vegas Pro, I have to crop out the white back ground which I don't want to do. Again, if I choose to do the cropping in Vegas. Then I won't need to go thru all this resize things.
What do you mean you have to crop in Vegas? You're doing something wrong. Are you importing as .PSD?

Thanks for all trying to help.
I finally figured out and it is working at 1920x1080 image that I can import into Vegas without any cropping. I can do my animation or what ever.
The process of resize is simple.
1) Open CS5 and open an image
2) Click Image drop down > Image Size
3) Type in 1920x1080
4) Here is the Magic... uncheck Constrain Proportions = Bingo
Yes, that will work, but now all your images are stretched, a circle becomes an oval, people become fat, and so on. Not a recommended method for recognizable subjects...

When dropping a still image (jpeg, etc.) into a drop zone, resizing the drop zone resizes the image along with it. Is there a way to resize the image -inside- the drop zone boundaries so that the image better fits the existing size of the drop zone? Right now, I have to take the image back into photoshop and manually resize it so that it perfectly fits the size of the drop zone boundary.
