Anyone help me resize an image in gimp I'm pulling my hair out here

I am trying to reduce a picture to a smaller size so I can put it on an advert but when I rescale it to a smaller canvas, gimp forces the resolution to reduce also. This means I end up with a blocky image which is useless. I can't believe they have locked the resolution ratio to the canvas size it seems stupid.

Help....

I use the image resizer from M$. That way I can easily and quickly resize any image without opening it etc Just two clicks and its done.

Should provide you with the answer if not post again and I'll try to find out more. (Don't have Gimp)

Alternatively Google is your friend............search "resize an image in Gimp"

Hope that helps.

Are you using 'canvas size' instead of 'scale image'?

Sounds like your probably using the wrong option (gimp is very powerful but not the most obvious user interface!) - the 'scale image' has options to alter either the pixel size or the resolution (ppi) independently...
