Hi
I need to make alot of banners for a slide show and I am using Photoshop.
My Pictures are about 5000px x 3000px
I need to cut an area that is 1000x280

Now I cut it with eye messures and then do final adjustments to it, but there must be a better way.

I am looking for a crop feature where you instead of drag the size and crop, do a predefined pixel size that I can more around on the big picture and when I am happy , crop it

Can anyone help on this?

Yes. As you think, there is a way to fix the size and crop it. Please try the following.

1. Select the Rectangular Marquee Tool
2. choose the style of Marquee tool as Fixed Size.(out of Normal, Fixed Aspect Ratio and Fixed Size)
3. Put on your dimensions 1000 x 280

thats it.
Now, you can move your cursor on the image and choose the zone which you require.
Then, Do Image > Crop

Enjoy!
