If you need to resize an image, there are many different programs that you can use.  For this example we are using GIMP, which is a free image editor.  Please read this article for information to assist in downloading and installing GIMP.

First, open GIMP and use File -> Open to open the image that you want to edit.  In this example, we will edit the logo for Web Hosting Hub.  When your image loads in GIMP, it will look similar to this:

image1

Once your image is loaded, click on "Image" in the menu toolbar and then "Scale Image."  This will bring up the following screen:

scaleimage1

Now you can re-size the image.  Currently, the image is 202 x 87.  If we want to make it smaller, we can change the width to 100.  By default, the height will automatically change to keep the image in proportion:

scaleimage2

Click "Scale," and the image will be re-sized:

scaleimage3

Once you are finished, click "File" then "Save," which will bring up the following box:

saveimage

Click "Save" again, and now the image has been re-sized.

Gimp is not currently available on the iPad and would need to be run on your computer. There may be other pieces of software that will allow you to resize an image on an iPad, but we do not hae documentation on them, nor know how well they may work.

Hello Dick Miller,

Cropping is a simple matter in GIMP. You will need to first select the area you wish to crop out with the marquee tool, then, you will need to Transform and CROP and it's done. You can also refer to Gimp's tutorial on using CROP.

Hope that helps!

Regards,
Arnel C.
