Square image

Recommended Posts

How to create the square image in Xara or wherever. When I change the height the weight is changed automatically and vice versa and they have never become equal, so I can't get a square image.

I'm not familiar with Xara but usually, there is a box about locking aspect ratio where you resize things.

However, if you're changing the dimensions of an existing rectangle to create a square, you'll distort things. Maybe you can provide more detail about what exactly you're trying to do?

Im not getting anything from the link. Briefly looks like a sound file wants to play, but quickly shows me a marked out speaker.

im totally unclear what you are trying to do.

As far as I know, mp4 is an audio file. I get no audio, just see a jpg inside a graphic editor. So either you need to improve your communicarption skills or I have to improve my mind reading skills ..... 

I’d love to help if I can, but so far, I’m not getting what you are trying to do.

Oh no, mp4 is for video and mp3 is for audio. You should download it and open with a desktop app like VLC player or smth. Nevertheless, maybe someone else could open my screencast?

Ok - I had tried on iPad and phone, and it didn't work, but got it to play on my PC. See the lock to the right of where you're entering the dimensions - uncheck that. However, as I said before, if you force resizing like that, you'll end up distorting your image. How bad depends on how much. Better is to keep the lock on, find the smaller of the dimensions and resize just that - letting the other dimension proportionately resize itself. Then crop the image to the final size you want.

If that didn't make any sense, send your original image and let me know what you're aiming for, and I'll be happy to cobble together a step by step of what I would do.
