• Type other values into the Width and Height boxes to create selections with other proportions. For example, using 8 and 1, respectively, will force the Marquee tool to create only selections that are eight times as wide as they are tall.

• Choose Fixed Size from the Style drop-down list in the Option bar and type in dimensions, in pixels, for your selection. Say you had an image that was 800 x 600 pixels and wanted to grab a 640 x 480 pixel chunk of it. Once you've typed the target dimensions into the Width and Height boxes, clicking with the Rectangular Marquee produces a selection in that size that you can drag around the screen to the part of the image where you want it to be.
