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.
    ps looks to inexpensive.

    Could you drop us an email at 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!

    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.
