RE: resize picture
Basically, you can't, because you rectangle becomes a square. So you have to either extend the original picture on the sides so that it becomes a 473x473 square (Image/Canvas size, and unchain Height/Width so that entering a new width won't change the height), or crop part out of the image (Crop tool: Crop ) so that it becomes square. You can then use Image/Scale to scale it to 600x600. Caveat: scaling up produces an image of lesser quality, try to use Filter/Enhance/Sharpen to improve it a bit.
