    Silly Question

    Hello Fellow Ragers

    Had a query for for anyone who can help me.

    I'm work on a 5x7 canvas @ 200 ppi most of the time, first off.

    Now i was wondering, i want to import an image, photo, JPEG, etc on to a layer, i already know how to do this.

    My question is... how can i get that image to scale correctly so that the image doesn't come in too big or too small, i'm kinda looking for the image to fill the page proportionally.

    Many thanks guys

    Perhaps use Photoshop or similar program to make the photo the correct size before you import it.

    I hope that helps

    Possibly, if you can't get access to Photoshop, remember you can download a trial with a full 30 days usage, no restrictions and no watermarks, then maybe try out "The Gimp" which will do the much the same job as Photoshop with a little practice, if your not serious about Photo Manipulation, or don't do that sort of stuff regularly, i would encourage you to grab The Gimp to help out with these sorts of things, ie resizing a photo.

    Btw, i was just over at the Gimp Features page, and it has indeed come a long way form the program i knew many years ago, it looks very professional, an excellent replacement for Photoshop, i believe

    Your always welcome, glad to be of assistance

    Hey PICASO,

    I actually used artrage to photo enhance a picture of my family and it turned out great... To do this, I had the same issue you are talking about.

    What I did was chose the "add tracing image" option in the "New Painting" selection screen. I then chose to use the deminsions of the tracing image. Once the tracing image was showing on the canvas on the painting screen, I converted the trace image to paint. Then I simply resized the painting. If you change either height or width, the other will atomatically adjust to keep the correct proportion. Hope that helps.
