I am trying to flatten a jpg. image/ our logo to fit on a template website. The fatten function is not highlighted or the crop function. Not a computer wiz. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this. Thanks, Kim

ctr+shift+f :wink: or when you save the image as .jpg it will ask you if you want to flatten it.
For more info press F1 or go here help topics.

Maybe I should ask how to stretch my image horizontally. The flatten option is not working.

If you want to make the image smaller by cropping out a portion,
use RectangleSelectTool :RectangleSelectTool: and Crop to Selection. :Crop: .

To squash down the image, rectangle select around it, choose
:MoveTool:, then engage the top center node of your selection
and move it down. This will make the image flatter, but will distort
its aspect ratio.

To stretch horizontally, engage a side-center node and pull sideways.

to stretch: select something and then click M and then move the nubs.

What exactly is not working? you could also try merging a layer onto another(ctrl+m).

EDIT:aah sarkut beat me to it.

Flattening in Paint.NET and Photoshop takes a multilayer image and reduces it to a "normal" single layer image, which can then be saved in any format (JPG, PNG, etc.). It has nothing to do with the image's dimensions or content.
