I wanted to resize an image onto a 500x500 canvas. However, it's too big for the canvas. So I shrunk it down, and now the parts that weren't on screen are now cropped and it frustrating to work with. Help?

That's not a bug. If it's not on the canvas, it's not part of the image.

 

1. Open your large image.

2. Edit -> Resize Image

3. Set the Width and Height to 500

I think Garchompula means that when I paste an image  larger than the canvas . If you grab the nods to make it fit in the canvas, part of the image is lost.

Well, but that's the same with other words. I see it like toe_head2001. It's not a bug. The "lost" or invisible part isn't on the canvas and therefore it isn't longer part of the image. If you paint an image, you have to paint on the canvas. You can't paint in the air.

 

If you want to paste an image larger then the current canvas, you will asked, what you want to do now:

My experience with many users over the paste 20 years shows me, that most users don't read carefully the messages on screen.

@Eli ... Real Madrid fans would like to see parts of Messi missing :D  (The greatest Footballer in the World IMO)

 

I'm with Eli and Garchompula.  If you don't choose the Expand Canvas option the larger image is cut off when you resize it.  The overlap part of the image is no longer there.  Totally gone.   It never used to be like that

 

A short video to show what happens

Must be an unintended consequence of trying to fix this issue:

 

Good point.

 

If you switch Quality to Nearest Neighbour the resizing is OK

Thank God! I thought, I would have to search for a new image editing program. :biggrin:

My biggest worry is how out of control my hand is at the end of the video, with the shakes

Would be interesting to see what my driving is really like :roll:

It's REALLY annoying

 

Something is only annoying if you let it be.  Just set Quality to Nearest Neighbour as a work around for now

It's not as if it's totally unusable and Rick is aware of it, so jumping on his case won't get it done any quicker.

I'm trying to resize an image after cropping it into the avatar (see attached) but only small patch of the image shows. This never happened before I updated my paint.net.

Try updating again.  The most current version is 4.0.21
