Resize Tool

To access the Resize Tool, click on Image > Resize or hold down both the SHIFT + S keys on the keyboard.

Under the Pixel Dimensions category, change the Width and Height in the New column. Changing any one of the dimensions will offset the size of the other as it will maintain the aspect ratio of the image.

To manually set the Width and Height to be exact numbers, you will need to put a checkmark in the Advanced settings box, and then uncheck the Lock aspect ratio option. After that is box is unchecked, then customization of both Width and Height together is possible.

After resizing the image to the necessary dimensions, click the OK button.
