In these last days I have been extremely busy, and among all that I have had to do ... I have edited several images, and that is precisely what this article is about 🙂
Many (almost all) know that with Gimp, you can edit and chop images ... yes, but many times open Gimp to simply crop an image, it's like overdoing it a bit ... as the saying goes, «kill a mosquito with a cannon»😀
The ones we use KDE, we have our image viewer Gwenview, which is just great !! Now I will teach you to cut (crop) images and also resize them using the same image viewer that we have always used.
We will use the following example image:
First, we open it with our regular image viewer: Gwenview:
This image has dimensions of 1600 × 1200, we will first change the size to 1024 × 768 only. For that we go to Edit - »Change Size and a small window will open that I show below, also instead of going to Edit - »Change Size they can press [Shift] + [R] and the same window will open for them:
There we write the new size, for example we write 1024 in a box (left) and automatically in the one on the right it will be 728 🙂. Once that is done, we click on Change the size and voila, our image will change from 1600 × 1200 a 1024 × 728.
And we will see, that now it offers us the possibility of saving the change and replacing the old photo (the 1600 × 1200) or, saving this 1024 × 768 with another name or in another place:
Now we will cut out a part of the photo, because… I don't want the sky to be seen, I want only the ship, the sea and the mountain to be seen… for that we are going to Edit - »Crop (or they press [Shift] + [C]) and we will see how to cut the image, it is all very, very intuitive ... come on, how simpler impossible 😀
We just have to runyes ... I know that some will be laughing LOL !!) the stripes (lines) until they cover what they want the final product to be, I leave a screenshot so that it is better understood:
When they have what they want in the box, they click Cut out and voila 🙂
Here is how it was for me:
Well, this has been everything 🙂
What is super simple and saves more time than with Gimp? 😀
Greetings and I hope it is useful to you ... I liked it a lot and now I try to stop using Gimp for these simplicities (I.e.
