    I have a picture that I am trying to print as an 8x10 but the image is too wide and I cannot fit the entire image into an 8x10. How do I fix the image in Photoshop to get the full image onto the print?

    You go under image, and image size on the top. the under the dimensions switch it to inches and then set it to 8X10. hope this helps!

    I'll bet that the problem is that the aspect ratio of your image, does not match the 8x10 ratio. The standard photo sizes are all different.

    In that case, you need to crop the image to the correct ratio. In photoshop, click the crop tool and then at the top of the screen there should be a couple fields where you can set the size/ratio. You can enter 8x10 or choose it from a list of presets.

    Then you have to cut off some of the image to make it fit...that's what cropping is.

    That's why I try to compose shots with some room around the subjects...so that I can crop to different ratios if needed. :er: ;)
