Re: [Gimp-user] 8x10 photo without cropping...

I am assuming you're asking it this way too because you saved it as a
flattened version of your work? I mean, if you have a version of it
with all the layers as live text and added graphics still separate,
you could just save or copy out another of the background pic and
scale or resize to your wishes, and then re-add and size or position
the text and/or graphics according to taste, right?
Hoping you did save with layers intact somewhere.

Hi - I am a bit of a newbie to this prog. And the issue I am having,
is that I created a Magazine cover using my son's football pic. To
make a long story short - I can create a fabulous 4x6, but when I try
to send it out to blow up to an 8x10, it crops way too much of the
cover... How do I save or edit the pic as an 8x10 so that I do not
loose my added graphics and artwork? Please help!  Any suggestions
would be greatly appreciated!

I know, this might be a little bit too much for someone new to the
program, but one of the better ways to do it would be installing and
using the liquid rescale-plugin <>
It will scale the image instead of cropping it, so there won't be
anything cut or borders added in. But other than the normal scale-tool,
it tries to detect important parts of the image (like faces or text) and
keeps their proportion the same.
Feel free to email me if you decide to do it this way and need some help.
