Hey, I have photoshop elements, and am trying to crop some pictures for A.net.
I need to get the pixel count to 1600 X 1600 (at least) , but don't know how. I've tried cropping the picture to reduce the pixels, but after cropping, the pixel count stays the same.
How to I reduce the number of pixels so A.net will except my pictures?

I don't have Elements, but in the full version you select the canvas and then go to "Image" -> "Crop" (or use the crop tool), and the other useful feature for your challenge would be "Image" -> "Image Size"
PS: At least in the full version, these questions are also answered in the help section. Useful feature too often neglected.

I had the same problem recently. I'm assuming you're using Photoshop Elements 6, this advice is based on that version:
Go to Image -> Resize -> Image Size
That will bring up the relevant box. (You can also just press Alt+Ctrl+I)
It lets you change the dimensions of the photo. To change the pixel dimensions of the photo you need to tick the 'resample image' box. This will open up the "pixels" area of the box for editing. Then you only need to change on number in there, the other number gets changed automatically as I'm sure you'll notice.
I tend to resize my photos to 1024x768 approx, any bigger is usually overkill for A.net (or so I've read, I've not actually had a photo uploaded).
I hope this helps,
P.S Are you by any chance a 747-400 pilot? Or is your screen-name wishful thinking?

Quoting DavyCam (Reply 8): Create a new file in the size you want, say 1024x768 (300 dpi RGB, not CMYK).
For internet display purposes the dpi setting is irrelevant and won't change anything.
The image colour profile should be sRGB rather than Adobe RGB 1998 (or any other), otherwise it will not display properly on most browsers. However, sRGB is the default settings for most cameras anyway, assuming you're shooting JPEGs.

Use Picasa! It is Free! After you have done your resizing, light and straightening you can go to the more sofisticated programs for your touching up, most of the time it is all you need! Arcsoft comes with your Canon cameras is very good!
