How to Make 2 X 3 Pictures on My Computer

If you have a basic photo editing program on your computer, you can crop a photo and make any size picture you want. Making 2 x 3 pictures just involves opening photos in your photo editing program and cropping the images to the right size. One of the most commonly used photo editors is Adobe Photoshop. But a word processor such as Microsoft Word will do the trick, too. Follow these steps to crop pictures to 2 x 3 using both programs.
