Creating specific size image for slider in Wordpress
Hi,

I'm sorry to ask what is probably a very basic question to those of you who have used GIMP for a very long time, but what I am looking for is - to take an original image, that by way of example is 2656 x 1768 px, and create a smaller image from it that is 960 x 400 px. The final image is intended to fit in a 'Slider' on the front page of a website that is created using Wordpress.

I know that I will only select 'part' of the original image, but I've tried numerous things, cropping, resizing etc... without success, and I'm getting increasingly frustrated. I have looked at various existing threads in the forum, but can't seem to find one that covers exactly what I'm trying to do. I guess there will be one somewhere, but I've not been able to find it so far.

If someone can help with a little bit of advice I would be enormously grateful.

Regards,

Alan
