CAD drawing Resizing Raster Image 5   This functionality is available only in the Raster module.

It is used to bring the image size in accordance with predetermined values.

It is advisable to carry out after performing such operations as deskewing and cropping the image, as well as after scanning, which results in an image of a non-standard size. If the new image is smaller than the original one, the image is cropped. If the new image is larger than the original one, margins are added to the image. Changes are tracked in the preview window.

The operation can be applied to only one image.

Select and image and run the command.
