Hello all!
I'm having some serious problems resizing an image to fit the specifications of one of my client's high school specifications. I try but I seem to distort the image. It's imperative that the picture feet these ramifications or else their picture will not be inducted into the year book. I have attached the image in hopes someone can fix this dilemma or provide me with a tutorial.
2 by 2.5 inches overall size with a 1.5 inch head size.
600 by 750 pixels at 300 resolution (ppi)

Sounds like an aspect ratio problem. Images have both Shape and Size. For example, a 4x5 and a 4x6 image are different Shapes, one will not fit evenly into the other. Print paper is like that too, often a different Shape than the original image Shape.

To change the Shape of an image, you have to Crop it to Shape before you resample it to Size. Then the resample tools have a "Maintain Aspect Ratio" box (or Constrain Proportions, or similar words meaning same) that has to be checked. Otherwise, you size one side different than the other side, which distorts the image (makes shape tall and thin, or short and wide, or circles become ovals).

2x2.5 and 600x750 are 4:5 aspect ratio (ratio of the two sides), which is 4:5 Shape (not speaking Size). But your original camera image is either 2:3 (DSLR) or 3:4 (compact or phone) Shape. Or maybe 16:9 (camcorder). But your goal needs 4:5. So you Crop it to shape first, and the resample it to Size.

Your goal has to crop it to 4:5 Shape first, and then you can resample it to 600x750 pixels Size.

What wayne said. A square peg will not fit in a round hole unless you cut the corners off.

600x750px @ 300ppi = 2"x2.5"
 
Those are the specs for a standard ID Card or Passport photo. What software he has to do the job will determine the help instructions.
If it's too large to upload and he has software that will just change the dpi he can just make it 72dpi or something like that and upload it that way.
I'm getting an ad on my page for a program called "My Image Converter" - perhaps this post is just shilling for that software???
