EASY Resizing Photoshop Trick! [Hidden Crop Feature]

Front Image Crop Tool

In this Photoshop Tip, I’m going to show you how to easily crop and resize an image using the dimensions and resolution of another.

We will use an amazing little-known feature within The Crop Tool.

Let me show you how it works.

Time needed: 3 minutes.

How To Use The Crop Tool’s Front Image Command

  1. Open Both Images

    Open the two documents in Photoshop.

  2. Go to the Image Whose Dimensions You Want to Copy

    Go to the tab that contains the image whose size and resolution you would like to copy.

  3. Select the Crop Tool and Choose “Front Image” from the Crop Size Menu.

    From the Toolbar, select the Crop Tool. In the Options bar, click on the drop-down, and select “Front Image.” The “Front Image” command will copy the dimensions and resolution of the current photo onto the Crop Tool.

  4. Go to the Second Document, and Crop Your Image.

    The Crop Tool will be active with the dimensions and resolution of the first image. No matter how large or small you make your crop, the result will always be the dimensions and resolution that you set on the Front Image!

Easily Smooth and Soften Skin in Photoshop – Best High-End Techniques

Smooth Skin in Photoshop

In this tutorial, you will learn how to smooth skin in Photoshop!

We will work with two high-end skin softening techniques. Both methods are non-destructive, which means that you can edit your skin softening effect at any time!

But most importantly, these skin smoothing techniques will leave the skin texture intact. So that you can get beautiful smooth skin, without it looking fake or too soft.

The first skin softening technique will use a brand new feature of Photoshop CC. The Texture Slider in Camera Raw.

If you are in an older version of Photoshop, don’t worry, the second technique will work in Photoshop CS6.

We’ll start this portrait retouching tutorial by removing blemishes and other skin distractions using Photoshop’s Spot Healing Brush Tool.

Then, after the initial clean-up, you’ll learn step-by-step how to smooth and soften skin in Photoshop without blurring the skin texture, or other vital areas.
