I am using Photoshop Elements 2.0 which came together with my Camera. In general I am quite satisfied with it, except one thing that I could not solve yet:
How do I keep the 1.5:1 width/height ratio of the pictures when cropping? I know that I can set a width of, say, 1024 pix and a height of 683 pix in the crop tool, but how can I use it just with a ratio of 1.5:1, regardless how big the size will be? E.g. if I want to crop but keep the current size of the cropped portion.
Have looked at the help file but as I don't know which technical term to look for, the help was rather useless for me

You should be able to select Constrained Aspect Ratio in a field on your tool bar when you have the crop tool selected. Then there will be two boxes next to it where you can enter 1.5 to 1 etc. There is a normal setting as well I think. I have an early version of Photoshop so may be a little different layout.
Search for Constrained Aspect Ratio in the help menu if the above doesn't work.
