I'm new to Photoshop and I would like to set up a new workspace. I would like to achieve a 6 x 4 photo size upon completion.
What dimensions should I use on my new workspace?
Are digital prints true 6 x 4? (I seem to recall that photoshops actually crop digital camera images?)
What should my resolution be set at?
Any assistance with setting up my new workspace would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance...

Hey Dave,

There are a couple of ways you could achieve this;
a) you could just open up a larger page, insert the image onto this page and then crop it
but probably better; b) bring the image into Photoshop (drag and drop the image into the grey space in photoshop before opening anything. right click on the top bar of the window of the image (which says the image details) and click ' canvas size'. you get the pop up (like attached). Change the units to inches and type in the required dimensions (6x4). It is recommended to change the resolution to 300dpi.

In response to your other questions, photoshop could indeed change the image sizes and resolution so it's generally best just to check (again by opening the pop up 'canvas size').

I hope this helps.
QUOTE Thanks
