The crop takes place at different places and at various magnifications (reductions, actually) of the original. Sometimes orientation is switched.

    that is why I said 'if' as the first word in my reply, knowing it was probably a big if... cropping out photo's is something I do as reference for drawing... and as Keith said there is no 'quick' way to do this if 'every one is different' that's just a fact of life

    @EGG and GARY call me a pedant if you will, but since when has resizing been the same as cropping... or am I missing something... ?

    c'est moi [or should that be: c'est je ]

    When I was at school [quite a while ago] resizing was something you did with canvas and crop had something to do with horses... you just never know in this world....

    In that case I would create a bunch of rectangles to your final size. Then drag and drop the photos onto the rectangle (I think I already said this?). You can still resize as necessary with the Fill Tool or the Photo Tool smart resize.

    If the images are in the right aspect ratio, you can use the Crop tool with the Lock aspect ticked and Current selected. Otherwise pick from ratios 3:2, 4:3 and 16:9.

    Crop to the need. Then resize each to the first you sized as 1024px wide.

    Artistic and mechanistic combined,

    oh I'm sure you've been seen to hang out in your time Gary

    Acorn on the other hand appears pedantic ...

    I guess the crop tool on fixed aspect and ratio 4:3 sounds like it might do the job except I find the opaquing [is that a word?] of the image area outside the crop more of a nuisance than doing it with intersect - and still have to resize afterwards...

    and another reason I don't use crop tool is it does not crop groups in toto [as in latin that is, not rock]
