Resizing an image?
New Gimp user, trying to resize an image from a larger size to a smaller one. I do everything the handbook says, change the width to the desired value, height changed automatically, I have a smaller image but when I try to view the new image at 100% (its real dimensions) I see that the image does not have the dimensions given by me!
For instance if I want to resize an image from 5/4 inches to 4/3 inches what do I have to see it on the screen exactly at 4/3 inches?

Thank you all!

RE: Resizing an image?
Thank you for your comments. I am trying to assemble images as figures suitable for publication in a scientific journal and I am having trouble fitting my images to the limits set by the publisher. I am not printing the pictures myself but I have to sent the publisher print-ready pictures and the publisher complains that the pictures are not the right size. Usually I get a larger picture and I crop our just a part of it, combine it with several other pictures and the whole thing must be let's say 5/7 inches. Somewhere on the road something is missed and the final figure does not have the right size! Let's assume we have two pictures, both of 8/10 inches. From each picture a fragment is cropped out and the two fragments must be combined in a final figure that must be 5/7 inches and ready for print. How should I proceed? Thanks again for your advice.

Regards, Catalin
