Changing the size of an image.

Im looking to change some images from 4:3 to 16:9.

Whats the best way to crop/resize and is there software out there which will make it easier than doing it all manually?

Thanks.

Re: Changing the size of an image.

Don't bother wasting your dosh on PhotoShop..Trust me the guy that suggested it never bought it either lol



Free Open Source Software

https://www.gimp.org/

N-Joi

Edit:

Oh and i know you love asking questions Alan ...I will read your mind. here is the answer

With GIMP open, go to File > Open and select an image. ...
Go to Image > Scale Image.
A Scale Image dialog box will appear.
To see the Image Size in inches or a value other than pixels, use the drop down beside the values.
Enter new Image Size or Resolution values. ...
Select Interpolation method.

Have fun

Re: Changing the size of an image.

Adobe Image CC suite is only 8 a month. 7 Full on, professional apps for that price it very reasonable.

Photoshop, Lightroom, Lightroom Classic, Portfolio, Spark, Behance and Bridge. Plus access to Adobe Stock. It's a bloody bargain price. Always the latest versions, too.

Gimp is painful to use, imo. user friendliness was not top of their feature list.

Re: Changing the size of an image.

What's wrong with just using MS paint? Ships with the OS and can crop, stretch, resize, skew etc.

depends what you want to do, I guess. there's nothing 'wrong' with paint, but it's feature list is extremely limited.

The OP just wants to resize the image, nothing more. Why get so complicated?
