    10 easy steps to crop/resize In Photoshop (CS6 & most other earlier versions).
    1. Ensure your image is landscape.
    2. In “Essentials” mode, ensure the “Style” is set to “Fixed Ratio”.
    3. Change the ratio Width to 800 and Height to 384.
    4. With the Rectangular Marquee Tool, select the portion of the image you want to make as the screen.
    5. Make it as large as you can. (you can resize later).
    6. Once selected, crop it by clicking “Image” in the top browser, then select “Crop”. The image is now the right shape.
    7. To ensure the correct file size, again in the top browser, select “Image”, then “Image Size”.
    8. A pop-up will appear. Ensure the pixel dimensions are set for Pixels.
    9. Change width to 800. Ensure the Height is 384 or less. (it should show 384). Then select “Save”.
    10 To save, select “File”, then “Save As”. Save the image as a JPG. If the file is still larger than 1.5mb, change it to a lower resolution to lower the file size the closest to 1.5mb without going over. Done.

    Save your image to a USB and upload it into your system. Done!
