Hello all!

Well, I've been lurking big time here for months now, reading in preparation for the time when I would actually have a little bit of extra time to fool around making some icons. And the time has come, so here I am.

My question has to do with resizing/cropping images to 100x100 for that perfect icon-y goodness. Now, I looked through the memories and was following this tutorial:
http://community.livejournal.com/icon_tutorial/341999.html

Everything made perfect sense to me, but I have one problem. When I use the Rectangle Tool to select the part of my image that I want to crop, and the popup menu comes up for me to plug in the dimensions for my resized image, the tutorial says that "Constrain Proportions" should be checked. When I do that, though, I am unable to plug in my own dimensions. For example, when I put in "100" for the width (with "constrain proportions" checked), the height automatically changes to "67".

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong; I have everything done exactly the way she says in the tutorial, yet I can't get it to work. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

Oh, and for the record, I'm using PS7.

Thanks in advance!
