Thread: cutting a document in half to save

    cutting a document in half to save

    I am making a 4x6 photo book and used a 4x12 document in PSE11 to make the pages. That way I knew the right and left side would match up. But now I need to "cut" each side to save individually as a 4x6jpeg. I would still like to preserve the original 4x12 psd file too. I'm not sure how to do that. Thank you for any help!

    One way you could do this would be to save your 4 x 12 document both as a jpeg and a PSD. Then I would duplicate it by using ctrl J or command J twice. I would turn the eye off on the lower two copies in the layer palette. Then draw a 4x6 rectangle with the rectangular marquis tool and the hit delete. Then save the half that is left as right or left. I would save each side as a jpeg and a psd also. Then turn off that layer and turn on the lower layer and repeat only delete the other side. The you should have a 4x 12, a right side 4x6, and a left side 4x6. I hope that helps.
