    You're welcome; I had another thought:  if you want a template, why don't you try to see if there are any apps available that will do what you want. I can't be of help with that since I create my stuff from scratch.

    I am unsure as to how to determine the pixel dimentions of the photo

    Preview will tell you in the Inspector window or when you use Adjust Size as I described earlier.

     

    Incidentally JPEG and .jpg are the sme thing.

    Workflow

     

    Note physical size of cropped image in your document:

     

    click on it > Inspector > Metrics > Size > Width/Height

     

    Open photo in Preview .app > Toolbar > Select > drag over crop to match the image as you had it in Pages > Menu > Tools > Crop / Adjust Size… > set Width & Height to match shape in Pages > Resolution: 300 for print/150 for good screen viewing/72 for smallest to email > Save as > Format: JPEG / Quality: 8 or less

     

    The file size will be indicated at the foot of the dialog as you save

     

    You may want to add a little bit of sharpening as well:

     

    Menu > Tools > Adjust Color > Sharpness: drag to right till image looks harsh then drag back till it goes away

     

    Drag back the reduced image into Pages
