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.)

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
in tune: super junior ; YOU ARE THE ONE

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.
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 :)
