Resizing images and videos

There are two ways to resize images and videos. You can either use the selection tool to stretch the image to the size you like, or change the size in the Properties panel.

To resize an image or video using the selection tool:

  1. In the tools panel, click the selection tool.
  2. Make sure the Transform Control checkbox is selected in the tool options panel.
  3. Click the image to select it.
  4. Drag one of the control points on sides or corners of the bounding box.  
  5. Optionally hold the shift key while dragging to maintain the original aspect ratio of the selection.

To resize an image or video in the Properties panel:

  1. In the tools panel, click the selection tool.
  2. Click the image to select it.
  3. In the Properties panel, change the width and height values to change the size of the image.
  4. Optionally click the lock icon to maintain the original aspect ratio of the selection.

Images will change their aspect ratio to conform to the new boundaries, while videos will maintain their aspect ratio, staying as large as possible within the new boundaries.
