Click on ‘Image’ then ‘Image Size’

In most cases you want to change the numbers in the ‘Document Size’ box (you can change the numbers there or in the ‘Pixel Dimensions’ box if you have checked ‘Resample Image’, but NOT in both boxes).

If you check the Resample Box you have more flexibility with how big or small you can go, but you are altering the pixels in the image through a process called Interpolation. If you are making images bigger in most cases you want to select ‘Bicubic Smoother’ and for reductions select ‘Bicubic Sharper’.

If you have the resample box checked, always be sure to have ‘Constrain Proportions’ checked, to prevent your image to become deformed (if you reduce just the width for example, the image will looks squished and if enlarge it, it will look stretched out).

As for resolution: if you’re using it for the web in most cases 72 pixels/inch are enough, and for personal printing 300 pixels/per is good. If you are printing commercially you might need a higher resolution than 300 pixels/inch depending on how it is being printed).
