How do I flatten a jpg image?

Recommended Posts

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

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.
