(basic) Resize image for desktop
I downloaded a wallpaper and wanted to resize it so that I could use it on my desktop....

Here are my steps :

Import the image and use the resize tool

click save, click resize tool again to make sure that the save has worked (this is the shot of clicking again)

Then export

however when I look at the properties of this image in the file explorer the size is still 1680 x 1050...

Not sure what I'm missing here?

Cheers

ah ace.... Thought I was meant to use the scale tool for some reason...

Sos about the images - they were meant to embed themselves I must have used the wrong URL's.

Cheers Smile
