tutorial #1 // cropping  
MY first tutorial ever. XDD;; LOL.
it's for kumia  
EDIT// LOL. turns out someone already taught her, so. . . .  this is probably a pointless journal (which I won't delete since it's my first tut XDDD;;)

o1. Find a image that you would like to use.
I'll be using this picture of Erika Toda. (it's best to use large images & btw the orignal size of the image was 1200x1800 but was resized for the link XDDD;;)

o2. Find this tool, which is the tool used for cropping (highlighted in orange)



o3. on the image, hold your mouse on one part of the picture, then move it in a downward/right movement and you will get a dashed box, like this. adjust the box so that the part you want is in the box & so that the box is equal on all sides (you can adjust the size & ect of the box by using the courners of the box.) when your done & statified double click in the box OR right click >> crop.

o4. go to images >> imagesize, then enter 100 in either the width or height box (which ever one is lesser.)
BE SURE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE RESIZING IS BY PIXELS NOT PERCENT. 

o5. if your new image is already 100 x 100, save for web & your done!!

IF NOT. . . .
magnify (using the manifying glass, highlighted in the pic below) the image a couple times, then crop off the acess pixels.
for example: after resizing my image turned out to be 100 x 101, so I cropped 1 pixel off of the height.
see pic for reference  then save for web. :D

final product :
 

THE END. XDD;; I hope it helped you ~ 

LOL. I might never right another tutorial ever again seeing as this will probably never help anyone, BUT that's okay DDD8

I have to ask you this .. um when you said o4. go to adjustment >> image size, then enter 100 in either the width or height box (which ever one is lesser.)
I was just wondering if you meant this instead ... http://i19.tinypic.com/4ov41w0.jpg
I'm not getting the icon size like 100 x 100 IT COMES out really tiny and small so is it 250 x 250 or something else for this technique?

oh sorry ~ i meant IMAGES >> IMAGE SIZE XDDD;; srry for the confusion. -goes to fix it-

oh ~ after you resize it, make sure it's magnified to actual size. . . .
OR manybe, when you click IMAGE SIZE, make sure that the resizing is by PIXELS not PERCENT.
example:
Width: 100 pixels
Height: 100 pixels

that's all I can think of that could have gone wrong. . . .

Ohhh I seee .... XD Thanks but the icon is still small at 100 x 100 pixels I think it's the photo type I'm using for the base thank you :D I'll just change my base photo and start over again and follow this tut again from scratch Thanks hun :)
