I need some help here, just got my corel x3 a couple of weeks ago and i was wondering if there is a simple way for me to resize a cropped image to a specific width in corel-paint ? ...so that i can save it as a JPG and upload to a website.
I used HP software before, it basically gave me a little window where i would key in the width of the image (in pixels) and it would resize it for me in porpotion. I can longer use the HP software because it does not work with my Vista laptop.
sorry, i played around with it in photo-shop, got as far as cropping the image, but can't figure out (a simple way) how to resize it.
your help is greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance.

Hi T-Bot,If you only are going to increase the size of your image, the open the image, then go to
This is brutal but have worked for me when working fast. Maybe you after that should run the image through: Effects>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask and after that go through it via the Web image optimizer. You could also go via Lens in the Docker (Palette) and chose either Sharpen or the Tone curve.Well, Image>Resample to start with.Stefan

Menu Bar, Image, then Resample.
Click on the down arrow and change to pixels.Set your resolution (like 72 or 96 dpi)Then size your image.
Play around with that.
You beat me to it Stephan!
And also remember that if you are inreasing an image from small to very big, try doing the same procedure as I first said, but make the increase with percentage 10% at a time. 10 x 10 x 10 and so on. Keeps quality a bit better, especially if you increase a lowres. 72 into 150 or 300 dpi/ppi and so on.
Hi Steve,Aaah ;-) its because I am on another timetable, I have had my breakfast here in europe since long ago today :-)
You might also check the "Files>Web Image Optimizer" feature, it will give you many options as for compression and image type. I use it for all my web images because it gives me the smallest image with the best quality possible.
gee everyone, thanks.
yep, got it and it was easy to do.
In corel-paint I clicked on Image > Resample. Then I changed it to pixels, keyed in 200 for the width and it resized it for me in porpotion.
Then i clicked on File > Web Image optimizer, a window poped up, left it as is and clicked save.
I'll get into more detail as i learn but for the web the image looks fine.
thanks again, Im a happy camper.
Great that it worked out well for you T-BOT :-)
Glad to be helping out.
