Resize photo to fit banner?

Recommended Posts

How do I resize an image to fit a banner without having the image being squashed?

Let's say my banner size is 800 x 100 or 728 x 90

How would I resize my image to fit the banner without ruining the quality of the image and having it looked all squashed?

Have a look at my attachment for a sample of the banners I am working on

Photo editing tools I use are GIMP/Paint.NET

Any help is greatly appreciated

Use the Rectangular Selection tool.

In the toolbar change the setting from "Normal" to "Fixed Ratio".

Set the ratio to the dimensions of your banner.

Then make the selection as you want it.

Anything outside the boundaries of the selection

will be gone when you next, Crop to Selection.

This will give you an image cropped to the correct aspect ratio.

Lastly, resize to the finished dimensions that you want.
