Tips: for re-sizing images for club DPI Competitions.
In Photoshop go to File - Automate - Fit Image - type in 1920 x 1200 and it will automatically resize for portrait or landscape. You will only need to change the pixels if you have to resize for different projectors.
For Elements users, (this works on Elements 13, not sure about 14 or 15) go to File - Automate - fit image - type in the pixels you require 1920 x 1200 and it will hold the sizes until you change it. Again it will automatically size for portrait or landscape.
