GIMP => Image => Rescale

Hi,

I use the command line utility convert. convert -resize 30% reduces the file size to 30% of the original. It is very powerful: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/convert.php
They also have a gui interface for it, if you prefer doing it through an interface.

Pane free, when I type that in: Sorry no file to match your request. I do have Gimp but maybe some of the package has been deleted or was never added. Can it be added?

 

I have Gimp image editor, but it looks like it is for painting or drawing.

Not sure how to find or use command Line.

When I attempt to download an image from email, I'm asked what I want to open it with.

The default is Image Viewer-- Eye of Gnome. That has the ability to resize out before

saving if you want.

 

If I have scanned an image with my printer and intend to print it, then I use the HP printer software to resize.

 

If you want to do more image editing than just resizing then Gimp is a good choice.

 

I'm using Ubuntu.

What is the distro that you have installed?

 

EDIT: I download pics from my camera and view in Shotwell Photo Manager. Those pics can be resized there, too.

I use a little program called gThumb on my Linux box,not as bulky as Gimp and works well for most any basic photo applications.  Below is a screen shot when it's the edit mode.
