Resizing images
Can anyone give me "best" ( or favourite) ways of resizing an image? I'm only talking about changing the file size in JPG to a smaller or larger one for saving, We tried something yesterday, which sort of worked, but I decided the best solution was just to re-scan the original image again, which came out a lot smaller (ks), even though both methods were set to achieve 200 dpi. I think that was under "scale image". (I have been used to using a method called "resample" in another program, where you can change the dpi or inches/mm and off it goes.)

RE: Resizing images
Standard method is "Image/Scale image". You can use Image/Image properties first to set the "recommended DPI" and then use a size in inches/mm. But what really counts in the end (image quality and file size) is the size in pixels.

Upscaling will never give good results, even if some algorithms/methods are less catastrophic than others.
