My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Adobe Photoshop CS.  I created a postcard, size 4" x 6" and I have 3 images that were placed on this page using 3 separate Layers.   on one of the Layers that has the image, I would like to resize the image.  Can an Expert show me the steps on how to resize the length and width of this image on this postcard of size 4" x 6".  
I tried clicking on Image, then on resize, but the image shows a size of 4 x 6 and this is where I am lost, as there are other selections which  I am not too familiar with or not know how they react or behave.  Please let me know how to resize this image that is on a layer of its own, I want to change the present height of the image on this postcard.  Thank u.

The basic Photoshop starting block is the canvas. When you open a new file, you set the canvas size. The canvas size is make up of pixels, or individual color units, and you tell Photoshop how many pixels wide and how many pixels tall your canvas will be.

When viewing on a computer screen, an image will be so many pixels wide and tall, regardless of the resolution setting, but when printing, you can pack the pixels close together or spread them out. That is determined by the resolution that you set.

Now, to your question. If you have created a postcard 4" by 6" at 300 dpi resoluton, then your canvas should read 1200 pixels by 1800 pixels (in printing and in web, the width is always the first number) If this is the case, then you don't need to day anything else, just concentrate on the one layer like Tomislavj has said.

In the layers pallet, click on the layer with the image who's dimensions you want to change, and  like Tomislavj has said, go to Edit > Free Transform and grab a corner of the image and drag it to change its size, or go to Edit>Transform>Scale and type in a new size.

Let us know if you have troubles.
