Resizing an image is easy, open your Photoshop, select "Image" from the top toolbar, then pick the option "Image Size".

  1. Change the resolution to "96 pixels/inch";
  2. Change the width to "850 pixels" first, and the height will be changed automatically in a constrain proportion manner.

    *To form a square, you can make use of the cropping function - "Image > Canvas Size" to reduce the height.
