How to re-size images taken with Print Screen while keeping the original aspect ratio?
Say for instance I have pressed
Print Screen and cut the following image:
Now I wish to scale this down to about 338 width and 338 px height. However when I do this in Paint (I know, noob program) I get the following result:
Which looks somewhat compressed and ugly.
So my question is: How would you go around doing stuff like this? Are there any free programs that can help you?
You just need to tell Paint to keep the ratio when scaling. This is what my paint (Windows 8) looks like, but there should be a similar command in yours if your OS is different:
If you need to work with images I suggest you download a copy of The Gimp. It's free, open source and quite easy to use. The same dialog as above in Gimp will look something like this. The little chain icon is the one that tells the re-size to keep proportions:
Gimp has a lot of tutorials worth checking as well.
