Resize Images

In this tutorial, we talk about resizing images. This is useful, for example, when you need your image to be a specific size. Or when you want to email an image to a friend, and need to make it smaller.

    I am trying to migrate from PC and Paint Shop Pro to Mac and maybe Pixelmator. Would like to know about print/plotting option features and scanners. This looks like a very complete photo and graphics system, I hope.
    thanks
    ps looks to inexpensive.

    Could you drop us an email at support@pixelmator.com with your questions about these features? We’ll help out. By the way, if you’d like to try Pixelmator out for yourself, we actually have a free 30-day trial, which you can download at the page below:

    Hello, Can I choose the resampling method somehow? If not, which method does Pixelmator use? Thank you very much!

    @Clara

    Pixelmator chooses the best option from a few different resampling methods depending on the image. However, you can hold down the Option key as you click OK in the Image Size dialog to use nearest-neighbor interpolation, which is especially useful for pixel art.

    We always look to like editing image every day. Previously, I always cropping or resizing images with photoshop. But now I think I will give a try with Pixelmator trial. You are sharing some impressive work.

    hello, I understand the resizing image function but I am struggling to get my files down to 10mb. So how do I resize files to email or print. My files are very large and when I use an online printing service the files cannot upload to print. I cannot email them either as they are too large. But when I resize the images to as low as 4×6 with 300 DIP per inch I am finding the files are not able to upload to print.
    The files are varied from 57mb to 180mb.
