Photoshop: How or where do I find an action for crop to size?

I came across an action where it was possible to crop an image and still maintain the original data. In other word, if you did a crop from the original capture size to say a 5x7, the image was reduced to 5x7 but did not lose any of the top or side of the image.

The action produced a number of popular sizes and you could then choose the size you wanted.

Unfortunately I have lost this action and can't remember the site I got it from.

Can anyone help.

Regards

Perhaps you got it from Adobe Exchange: http://adobe.ly/PS_Exchange

Thanks Jeffrey. I did have a look but from what I can remember it was a link from another site and feel embarrassed that I can not think of it. It was such a useful action as you did not loose any of your image when you cropped down to a smaller size.

Thanks again.

One of the scripting or actions gurus out there could probably whip something up for you.

You could create your own action using:-
Edit - Content-Aware Scale

This is if the final result would be a different ratio.
