    Hey everyone, i have a PC and a Mac. I mainly use the PC as it's my family computer. I bought two programs for photos trying to resize my photos to a certain size. I even went down to my local ritz camera in the mall and had them resize the photos for me. I thought i was doing good and when i got home i scanned them into the computer and tried to print them on quilting paper and it printed the original size not the size i had scanned them in at. Now i'm frustrated as hell as this is for my mom and i'm trying to help her out. Basically I need a software that will allow me to resize photos to a 5x5 so my mom can make a cool custom quilt. It can run on windows or mac it doesn't matter. I also don't want to spend 500 on the newest and most awesome software i just want a basic photo program that i can resize in inches and not pixels or percentage. Any help is VERY greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, photoshop. Go to Image, then select Image Size. Just enter the dimensions you want.

    The free alternative is Gimpshop. Just Google for it, pretty good actually. Just make sure you have installed X11 off your Mac OS X DVD first.
