Maybe I've just completely missed the option, but how in the world do you crop and resize an image simultaneously in PS CS6? In CS5 and prior, when using the crop tool, I could set dimensions for the crop, resize the crop area to my liking, and cropping would resize the image - not just change the aspect ratio while maintaining the original image size.

I know that I can go down to "Size & Resolution..." in the dropdown on the left side of the crop toolbar, but that seems more than a little kludgy when previous versions could do it without any fancy footwork.

Anyone at all? I can't seem to find info on this in Adobe's help docs.

The only thing I can suggest is printing it out, using scissors and scanning it back in again.

Sorry.

^good choice. I would recommend using some rubylith and a proportion wheel as well.

Seriously, in all my years of photoshopping I've never cropped and resized in the same step, unless I made an action.
