Resize / Scale

Resizing the image changes the dimensions of the image without applying a transformation to the existing contents. Scaling the image will stretch the existing contents to the new dimensions. Smooth Scale generally provides better quality results than Scaling, by blending neighbouring colors.

You can express the new dimensions in pixels, or as a percentage of the original size. If you select Keep aspect ratio, the width and height will be scaled by the same percentage.


You can free-form Resize the entire image or Smooth Scale the selection using the corresponding handles.


Only scaling is supported for selections, and only resizing is supported for text boxes. See Notes for additional details about applying these effects.
