    Help resizing Photoshop project!?

    Help resizing Photoshop project!?

    I am creating a business banner. I used the wrong dimensions (although it was fairly large) instead of the 4' x 8' that I was supposed to use. I have my original PS file with all my layers. How can I bring those layers over to my new 4' x 8' project so I can work on sizing and aligning everything?

    Thanks so much!

    I'm using PS CS5 extended.

    You can use Image size Alt+Ctrl+I, uncheck Constrain Proportions and enter the dimensions in inches.
    Adjust the Bicubic settings to smooth or sharp depending if you enlarging or shrinking.

    The amount of times I've re-done a piece and there was a solution as simple as this. Never even attempted to check whether it was possible, duh. This will surely come in use, cheers.

    However, you will notice that there is a fair amount of quality loss, even while shrinking. But for small prints, it won't be much visible.

    Wow, I've just been using the resize tool, and wandering why I was losing so much quality.

    Thanks so much for the help
