  • Resolution
Photoshop is a popular image editing and graphics designing tool. Photoshop creates PSD files which are very commonly used in various fields of IT like web development, animation, multimedia, and photography. Photoshop provides various effects and layers for designing an image. Photoshop files are used in almost every aspect of daily life.

In a day, you may come across images of different shapes and sizes. Resolution is one of the most important entity of an image. Different image resolutions are used for different requirements, some images are as small as 4x3 pixels in small icons, and some are about 1024x768 pixels and are standard high definition images. Every image has a default resolution, thus making it suitable for a specific purpose.

You will not be able to use a Facebook profile or wall post image as your desktop’s background on your wide-screen HD display because the image is of low resolution, and will not fit the screens properly and will look stretched and blurred. So you require a high resolution image to fit the screen size perfectly.

While working on Photoshop, you may have come along a scenario where you require a high resolution image to match some specifications. This could be easily achieved by following the below described steps to change the resolution of a given image:

  1. Initialize the Photoshop 7.0 program from the Start menu using any account privileges.

  2. On the interface, select File from the menu bar.



  3. From the drop-down list that appears, click on Open.

  4. On the Open window, browse and locate your target file.

  5. Back on the interface, select Image from the menu bar.

  6. From the drop-down list that appears, click on Image Size.



  7. On the Image Box that opens up, input the Width and Height under the Pixel Dimensions section.



  8. Hit OK to convert the image.

  9. From the menu bar, select File and choose Save to save the image.

  • Restart Photoshop and open the new image. When you change the resolution of the image from the Image size options of Photoshop, you can also select your images size in different measurement standards like pixels, inches and centimeters.

    Now your image could be used for high quality printing, and in places where higher resolution images are demanded.
