Resize pictures on iPhone iPad

Do you want to upload an picture to the web but found it is not at the right size? In this guide, we will show you an easy way to change pixel size of image or resize pictures on iPhone. There are mainly two ways you can change the size of an image: resizing and cropping. In an earlier article, we already demonstrated how you can crop image to any width and height on iPhone iPad.

By cropping a photo, you cut off part(s) of the photo. Resizing however changes the size of an image but not removes any portion of the source image. It simply make a picture smaller or bigger while keeping the same aspect ratio or height to width ratio. Generally speaking when we say resize an image, we mean shrink its size. We rarely enlarge pictures so as to avoid grain, blur and pixelation.

  1. Hi, can this app re-size a photo on my iPad, using an on screen ruler? For example, I have a photo that measure 9 inches by 12 inches. I want to re-size it to 8 inches by 10 inches so I can print it at Costco and frame it in an 8×10 frame. I’m not that familiar with all the pixil stuff, and work better usin length and width measurements, especially in inches.
