What do you mean?  A sample JPG I just opened is 700x509 pixels (24-bits), 1.02Megabytes in memory (which is the uncompressed size), and 76kilobytes file size (which is the JPEG compressed size).  If I save the same image with no compression, it will be 1.02Megabytes on disk.

Check the image size and then set the canvas size to be the same.  Make sure you use the default center for canvas and the same units of course.  In a layered document with more than one image, the canvas size often won't match any one of the images so you can have the images positioned around each other within that canvas.

You can use the crop tool. Select the crop tool, when you do look at the top of the toolbar. You should see 2 input boxes, you can specify an exact size. Make sure you use: in for inches, px for pixels, etc.
After you have set your dimensions, just drag a box using the crop tool and double click it.

Knowlton:

Document Size in PS tells you the actual size the photo or artwork is going to be when printed out or output in any other form.

Image Size for the same file will change depending on the resolution which is usually specified in pixels per inch (ppi) for monitors and dots per inch (dpi) for printers.

The higher the dpi the better the quality of the print output though the image looks the same on screen.
 
Monitors generally have a resolution of only 72 or 75 ppi but for a good quality print out you need between 200-300 dpi (or ppi).

So for the same Document Size the Image Size will change if you increase or decrease the resolution.

For web graphics that are required for display on monitors only a ppi of 72 will do. If you need to print out a copy use 200 to 300.

The Document Size will not change when you change the resolution so fix the Document Size first when you are creating an artwork.

Good Luck!
