How to Resize an Image in Pixlr?

Sharing is caring!

This is a new guide on how to resize an image in Pixlr in 2020.

In my previous guide, I described how to resize an image in Photoshop following the step by step guide.

The heck is- many of us don’t have enough time either skill to edit photos in Photoshop.

But resizing an image is a crucial and most common skill that requires everyday life if you are a blogger.

As a blogger, you already know the big size image can cause slow speed which is considered as a crucial ranking factor.

Google ranks your website down if your website takes too much time to load.

In this case, resizing an image helps to improve your website speed.

Today, I am going to introduce you to a web-based program name Pixlr X and the way of using it to resize an image.

The best part is you don’t require any skills to edit photos with Pixlr X.

So, let’s dive into it.

How to Resize an Image in Pixlr X (Method 1)

Step 1. Visit on Pixlr E

First, go to the official page of Pixlr E. It seems like the below screenshot.

Pixlr E homepage

From the homepage, tap on the Open Image button.

When you click there, it brings you to your gallery. From there, choose a photo you want to resize.

Here is the picture I want to change the size.

You can see on the right navigation bar that shows the width and height of my photo.

The width and height of the image is according to 1500 x 2000. But I wish to change the size to 750 x 1000.

To do that, head over to the next step.

Step 2. Go to Image > Image Size

From the top navigation bar, choose Image > Image Size. It opens a new dialogue box like this:

Put your desired value or photo dimension on the width and height box.

As I want to change the image size to 750 x 1000, I put these values there to get the exact output.

Next, tap on the Apply button to save the image dimension.

Now, take your eye to the right navigation bar again. Can you see the difference?

It shows me that my image size is changed to my desire photo size.

Step 3. Save the photo

As I am satisfied with the result, I am going to save it.

To save the picture, click on File > Save as. Then, you can see the Save Image dialogue box the looks like this:

From there, you can change your file name. Also, choose the desire file format to save your photo.

I recommend you to choose the jpeg if you wish to use it on your website.

Then, adjust the Quality slider button to 80.

And finally, click on the download button to save it to your computer.
