Resizing Images

This is a tutorial on how to resize, crop, and rotate your images using http://resizeimage.net.

Click on “Upload an image” and select the image you want to edit.

To crop an image, select the “fixed aspect ratio” option. The standard size for faculty images is 200×250, so you want to make sure your cropped image matches that ratio. Save this update by clicking “Change”. Click and drag your cursor across the image, and move the highlighted area until it is where you want your image to be cropped. Save this update by clicking “Crop”. If you are unhappy with this crop, you can click “Undo” and start over.

If your image is flipped, you can change it by choosing a rotation. Keep in mind that if your image is flipped AND you want to crop it, you should update your crop ratio accordingly.

Resize your image by typing in “200×250″px. Make sure you have kept the aspect ratio we used in the crop. You have the option to fill in extra space with a white or black background, but we should be filling all of the space by cropping, so you shouldn’t have to worry about it.

You can ignore the rest of the options for the most part, and simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Resize Image”. It will take a few seconds to render, then you can click “Download Image”.
