Resizing the Image
Click the Resize dialog tool to display the Print Size dialog.
Type or use the arrow buttons to adjust the size for Width and Height. The units, inches or centimeters, is determined by what has been set in the Preferences dialog for use throughout EQ8.
If Maintain aspect ratio is checked, changing one entry will automatically adjust the other entry to keep the appropriate proportions. Keep this checked for the highest quality resizing.
If Maintain aspect ratio is unchecked, then any value can be entered which may distort the image by stretching or contracting the image in one dimension differently than the other.
