Changing the print dimensions and resolution of an image (Photoshop)

When creating an image for print media, it's useful to specify image size in terms of the printed dimensions and the image resolution. These two measurements, referred to as the document size, determine the total pixel count and therefore the file size of the image; document size also determines the base size at which an image is placed into another application. You can further manipulate the scale of the printed image using the Print with Preview command; however, changes you make using the Print with Preview command affect only the printed image, not the document size of the image file. (See "Positioning and scaling images" on page 472.)
