To create a slice with the slice tool:

1 Select the slice tool . Any existing slices automatically display in the document window.

2 Choose a style setting in the options bar:

• Normal to determine slice proportions by dragging.

• Fixed Aspect Ratio to set a height-to-width ratio. Enter whole numbers or decimals for the aspect ratio. For example, to create a slice twice as wide as it is high, enter 2 for the width and 1 for the height.

• Fixed Size to specify the slice's height and width. Enter pixel values in whole numbers.

3 Drag over the area where you want to create a slice. Shift-drag to constrain the slice to a square. Alt-drag (Windows) or Option-drag (Mac OS) to draw from the center. Use snap to align a new slice to a guide or another slice in the image. (See "Moving and resizing user slices" on page 374.)
