When we’re out having a good time, it’s no secret that we love to capture the moment by taking as many photos as possible! However, what if you took a photo with your iPad to include it in a document or postcard, but it’s not the right size? I find it’s convenient if you can resize any photo to put on an application. So, if you wanted, how would you resize a photo on an iPad?
In Order To Resize A Photo On An iPad:
- Find and install the right app for resizing (Image Size or Desqueeze)
- Launch your resize app and select the photo to resize
- Start resizing your photo to your liking (with your fingers and the app tools)
- Save, share, or print your resized photos
1. Find And Install The Right App For Resizing
Finding an intuitive app to help you resize your photos or images is not an impossible task. However, finding something that checks all the boxes might be a little trickier. Whatever your needs, the Image Size app and Desqueeze app are some of the best options available for all your photo-resizing needs. While they are both free, Desqueeze users can opt to pay a small fee for advanced features.
Image Size App
The Image Size app allows for quick and effortless resizing due to its intuitive toolset, enabling users to get their ideal photo size. You can define the output format in one of four different units of measurement: pixel, millimeter, centimeter, and inch.
To maintain the aspect ratio, press the chain icon between the width and height input boxes. Image Size allows users to save, share, print, or email the finished image. Image Size users can choose to output their resized photos in JPEG or HEIC formats.
The app is free to use and available to download from the Apple Store. Users on the Apple Store give it a score of 4.7 stars at 24 400 ratings.
Desqueeze has plenty of features that allow users to resize photos and videos effortlessly, such as using presets for quick resizing and choosing the manual input option for pixels.
There are three ways for users to resize their images; they can opt for ratio clip, stretch, or ratio fit. You can use the orientation detection feature to resize images to natural size. As for file types, the output images can save in JPEG, PNG, and TIFF formats, whereas videos save in MOV, MP4, and M4V formats.
Desqueeze is available as a free app, or users can choose to pay a small fee for Desqueeze Pro. The free version comes with a score of 4.7 stars at 573 ratings, while Desqueeze Pro scores 4.6 stars at 48 ratings.
The difference lies in their advanced features; Desqueeze Pro offers more specialized and flexible features for customizing photos. For instance:
- Users can also resize photos and images according to percent and aspect ratios.
- Instead of using preset templates, Desqueeze Pro users can create and edit their own templates at will.
- Desqueeze Pro allows users to edit their photos and videos with features like flip and rotate, set Fill Color for Ratio fit mode, and update position for Ratio fit and Ratio clip modes.
Both Desqueeze versions also have device-specific pixel size limits for photos and videos:
- The iPhone 5, iPad 3(retina)/Mini2 or lower has pixel limitations of 4096 (1920×1080 – 1080p)
- iPhone 5s, iPad Air/Mini2 or later can use 8192 pixels (3840×2160 – 2160p, 4K UHD)
- iPhone 8/X, iPad 2018/Pro 2017 or later models use 8192 pixels (4096×2160 – 4K DCI)
2. Launch Your Resize App And Select The Photo To Resize
You can find a shortcut for the Image Size or Desqueeze app on your Home screen.
If you decide to go with Image Size:
- Look in the app’s top-right corner, and tap the icon that looks like a photograph. The app will open a new window and allow you to navigate to the location of the photo you want to resize.
- After you find the photo, you want to resize, tap it, and tap the Choose option in the bottom-right corner of the app. Afterward, your photo will open in the Image Size app.
If your app of choice is Desqueeze:
- After launching your Desqueeze app, it will greet you with a Camera Roll screen that displays all the images on your iPad device.
- Select the image you want to resize. One of the app’s greatest strengths lies in its ability to resize a batch of photos simultaneously. If this is your goal, continue tapping on multiple images.
3. Start Resizing Your Photo To Your Liking
After making your selection of photos you want to resize, it’s time to make the magic happen!
For the Image Size app:
- Navigate to the top of the app window and choose your preferred image-resize option. You can expect to find alternatives for measurements in millimeters, inches, centimeters, and pixels. Moreover, you can manually insert measurements if you want a specific image size.
If you went with the Desqueeze app:
- Choose the scaling ratio for your image by tapping your desired photo. When you’re ready, click the editing button in the bottom-left corner of the app window.
- During the resizing process, choose your preferred dimensions. You can do so by entering personalized width and height values and tapping OK when you have the correct dimensions.
4. Save, Share, Or Print Your Resized Photos
The final step is to save your resized photo or image, along with its new dimensions.
If you resized a photo with Image Size:
- Hit the Download button in the bottom-right corner of the app window to save your custom image.
- Of course, you are free to send, print, or share it with someone else.
If you customized your photo via Desqueeze:
- Choose OK a second time on the interface to accept all your changes. Afterward, your complete, resized photo or image will appear in the Camera Roll window, along with all your other photos.
- Similar to Image Size, you can tap your resized photo and choose to send or share it with someone else.
