Resizing jpeg image problem

Postby cadmunkey » Fri Feb 22, 2019 1:51 pm

Hi,
I dont use Layout very often anymore so sometimes I come across little problems that may have easy solutions!
I need to somehow quickly resize jpegs that I bring into layout so that they will have an accurate scale, BUT there doesnt seem to be a properties box when you click a jpeg (which would be super easy!)
Anyway heres an example:
My inserted jpeg is 378 units high, I need it to be 350 units high, is there a quick way to resize the image or do I have to scale it manually with the grips which isnt accurate enough? I am sure I am missing something simple!

There is a simple way to do this. In your example you need the scale factor for the new size. So that would be 350/378 which equals 0.9259. So grab a corner of the selected image and start dragging it. let go of the mouse and type 0.9259 and hit Enter.

Hi Dave, I was worried that this was the only solution. I have a large volume of varying sized images and working out the scale factor for all of them will be time consuming. Its a shame that Layout doesnt have a resize option similar to the tape measure in SU.
Cheers anyway!

Forgive my ignorance,,,,,,,but are you re sizing all images to the same extents in LO? (IE: like a postcard)
Just asking in case a template could be used to “snap to”....possibly even a SU model at scale in LO to be utilized for snap points.
