Resizing a picture

  1. Click the picture, if necessary, to show the green resizing handles.
  2. Position the pointer over one of the green resizing handles. The pointer changes shape giving a graphical representation of the direction of the resizing.
  3. Click and drag to resize the picture.
  4. Release the mouse button when satisfied with the new size.

The corner handles resize both the width and the height of the graphic object simultaneously, while the other four handles only resize one dimension at a time.

Image:Tip.png To retain the original proportions of the graphic, Shift+click one of the corner handles, then drag. Be sure to release the mouse button before releasing the Shift key.

For more accurate resizing of the graphic object, use the Position and Size dialog box described in Chapter 6 (Formatting Graphic Objects).

Image:documentation_caution.png Be aware that re-sizing a bit-mapped (raster) image will adversely affect the resolution, causing some degree of blurring. It is better to externally size your picture before insertion into your presentation, if possible.
