I just want the scene to fit the cap... how do I get around squeezing?

It's about proportions.  You need to do a little math.  These images are 223w x 100h.  I don't know what program you're using.  It differs.  You need to figure out some sort of multiple of that number that is able to capture the area you're focusing on.  Maybe try 1.5x.  That'd be 329w x 150h.  Select that much of an area, and move the area around to get that section that you're focusing on covered.  Not enough?  Go up to 2.0x.  That'd be 446w x 200h.  And so on.  Then after you've captured that area, you scale it down to the 223w x 100h that the image is.

Make sure whatever program you're using is applying "constrain proportions" or "keep proportions."

Change either the width or the length of the image you want to use (to match the banner size), and only one of them. It will either be too wide or too tall, but that's good. Just paste your resized too tall or too wide image into the banner template and you'll have to move it around to crop the appropriate parts.

No more squeezing!

I'm using Photoshop 7.0, so I guess I'll try what you guys said...

hold shift when you're shrinking it.

It turns me on when chicks refer to their penis and how another woman commented on it, too.
