Truble resizing pictures

by boothros, Thursday, March 31, 2011, 21:29 (3031 days ago)

Hi. I am working on a laptop (my only computer) and I seem unable to make pictures smaller. I only need to resize pictures for the front cover of my duplex 3 month calender (in horizontal format}, I can move them about perfectly well, but this ia all that seems to happen when they are highlighted with the black squares. I have also made the pictures smaller before loading them to SC but they still come out the same size (though more pixialted) I have managed get them to the right size in the darkroom, but as soon as I return to the template, its back to the same size again. As one picture is a logo, I really need to change the size considerably, but have tried every method in the help section unsuccessfully. many thanks, Sharon.

Resizing pictures

Once you have selected a picture and the black squares are shown,
place the mouse cursor on one of the black squares, press and hold down the left mouse button and drag the square to a new position.
(Holding down the Shift key while doing this maintains the picture proportions)

The picture size is set independently within Simply Calenders, so resizing in another program will, as you have discovered, affect the resolution only.
