How to you resize a picture to a specific dimension without distorting it?
I have an image that is 5363x3575 and I need to resize it to 960x381.

Is there any way that I can resizing without croping or distorting it?

Thank you for your help!

Resizing to from your first dimmension to your second is going to give you distortion because you are not resizing in Proportion. I would recommend that you resize in proportion if you want to avoid distortion

Using basic geometric resize, no. There are tools that may do some hardly noticeable compression in one dimension (search for "liquid rescale") but it all depends on what they work on (a scenery is a better target than computer graphics).

Otherwise you can also extend your original image to bring it to the 2.5 form factor (loing part of it, adding neutrals sides...) and then resize it.
