Im new to useing the program and I need help. Everytime I
try to resize a image it doesn't work. When I try to make
a picture bigger instead of making the picture bigger it
just gives me gray checkers in the new part. What should
I do? And when I try to make a picture smaller it just
cuts part of it off instead of shrinking it.
You are changing the canvas size.
You want to scale the image instead (right-click on image,
then Image, then Scale Image).
