Lesson 2: Resizing Images

Lesson 2: Resizing Images

Resizing is an important skill for image editing because usually images are not at the same size as you like. There are several ways to do it. I will only show two ways to you.

1) Open an image from URL or Computer
   My picture's URL:

How to browse image
2) Click to the Image Button on the upper panel, then press Image Size

Pixlr Image menu
3) A board should come out which asks you the Width and Height of the new image and there is a box which helps to change it properly. You may unchecked the box near it but, the quality of the image will break down. The current size of my image is 468x600 and I will change it to 960x1231 (computer suggested the height according to the new width)
