In order for my printer to print boarderless photos, there needs to be a 3mm boarder around the pic.

What I have been doing is selecting the photo and resizing it in the top left by changing the percent size to milimeter size. Then subtracting 6 mm from the size and manually typing in that number.

These are large photos and Photoshop hangs when I click on the lil box where you enter the size. Like photoshop is calculating before I even finish typing. Is there a way to tell Photoshop to wait until I finish typing to calculate the new size?

Its very difficult because most of the time I get a beachball as soon as I click the box.

I have a 2013 macbook pro with 8gb ram and all the latest software and osx.

Thanks

Have you tried waiting to see if Photoshop continues?

You could try Cmd+K (Preferences) then go to Performance and increase the amount of memory available to Photoshop.

Try resetting the preferences file.
It cures a lot of strange behavior in PS.


Start Photoshop and immediately hold down Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows)
or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS X).


Then, click Yes to the message, "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file?"
