Crop to fixed size


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I guess the (non existing) crop tool is a regualar issue. Please don't hit me for opening a new post ;)

For managing a website I need to edit / resize many images to a given and fixed size (150x200px). I would really like to do this in Paint.NET, but it's not that easy: I select the part of a given image using the fixed ratio setting (150 / 200), crop the selected part and resize it to the size.

This job would be accomplished much easier if I could enter the required size to a "crop to fixed size" tool / plugin, select the part of the image and get a resized image when finished.

Does a function / tool / plugin like this exist? If not: What do you think about the idea?

Thanks for your answers and kind regards,

Philipp

Hi APShredder,

thank you for your really fast answer!

Unfortunatly this does not work as I wanted it to work: I get a fixed size canvas, but need a flexible canvas in the right ratio.

Imagine I get a digital photo with a resolution of 1000+ pixels, e. g. of you. Now I want to put your face on my website, but I can use only images having a size of 150x200px. If I use the "Fixed Size" rectangle tool I can either select your teeth or your eye lashes. But I want to select all your face (the selected part would be much larger than 150x200px) and get a 150x200px image after cropping.

Please apologize that I used you as an example. I hope I could clearify my requirements.

OK, I think I knwo what you want to do. First, you should use the Rectangle tool with a fixed ratio like before, then once you get a selection you like, click Crop to Selection ( :Crop: ), and then finally go to Image --> Resize and change your image to the size you want. Hopefully that works. :wink:

I know that this works. I think I discribed your idea in my first post ;)

My question was if there is an easier way - since I need to edit loads of images I would like to give the size once and try to avoid using the select and crop and resize dialogues every time.

Kind regards
