Picture resolution
I am trying to scale an image to fit my screen, but it doesn't seem to go to 1680x1050. How do I get it to fit?

Typically the best thing to do is

1) crop the image using the crop tool, and set it to a fixed aspect ratio (and enter 1680:1050 for the ratio).
2) once the image is cropped, scale it (you can keep width/height chained)

How do I crop it?

Hm, I don't really get what I'm supposed to be doing to it.

OK, so I didn't really get what you wanted to do... or what was your actual problem.

Trying to make the image fit my screen. I don't know what I'm really looking to do with the crop tool.
