Just want to add that you need to deselect the Restrain Constrain Proportion when you do the changes of the size dimension.

Sincerely,
Ed

do you really want to resize or crop? resizing will ruin the image...
you should crop first it to min(width, height) x min(width,height)
then resize it to newwidth, newheight

Resizing the complete rectangle image into square image would lose the quality of the image. It would be squeezed in result by horizontal as well as vertical.

You better resize the image proportionally to make 256 width or height and then Crop for the required size.
As a first step, you would get an image of either 256 width with more height proportional or 256 height with more width proportional.

Step1: To resize the image - Do the following:

1. In the Image menu > Image Size (Ctrl+Alt+I)
2. Change the width to 256, check the 'Constraint Proportions' is selected
3. Now, you will get the height changed to 280

Press OK and now, you could see the image resized proportionally to 256x280, then you choose your required area in the Image for 256x256

Step2: Crop the image
1. Select the Rectangular Marquee tool in Tool box [M]
2. Choose the style of "Fixed Size" with the properties of Width and Height 256px
3. Click/Choose in the required image and say Image > Crop.
4. Save the file

I hope this would help you to get your things done.

Best of Luck!
