Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng, Anonymous
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to change image quality in GIMP ion Windows 7.
You should have GIMP open and an image ready to use.
You can refer to our other tutorials to find out exactly how to do that.
You may need to move "Toolbox" to see the menu.
First, click "Image" on the horizontal menu at the top of the window.
Click "Print Size...".
This option is located about halfway through the drop-down menu.
You can choose the print resolution in the dialogue box that appears.
Although it says "Set Image Print Resolution", which is a high value, you can select different resolutions. You can change "Width" and "Height" by manually typing values.
You can also use the up and down arrows on the right-hand side of the text boxes to change all of the values.
Change the unit by clicking the smaller box with a drop-down menu next to "Height".
With the "X resolution" and "Y resolution", you can click the connected chain on the right side.
This will allow you to edit resolutions separately.
You can click the drop-down unit menu.
Then, click a unit of measurement.
For "X resolution" and "Y resolution", you can manually type the specified units or use the arrows to change the resolution.
This will automatically update the size of the image.
If you click "Reset", then all of the changes that you have made will be cleared.
If you click "Cancel", then no changes will be made.
You will be taken back to the original image.
Clicking "OK" will apply the changes to the image.
The image will be resized. If you make a small image large, then the quality might be poor.
