Resize filter

Once you have scanned or imported an image, you may want to adjust its size. In APE, the  Resize command lets you adjust the pixel dimensions.
You can simply change your photo's resolution by adjusting Width and Height parameters on Pixel size mode control, or adjusting Scale parameter on Percentage of origin mode control.

Keep in mind that bitmap and vector data can produce different results when you resize an image. Bitmap data is resolution-dependent; therefore, changing the pixel dimensions of a bitmap image can cause a loss in image quality and sharpness. In contrast, vector data is resolution-independent; you can resize it without losing its crisp edges.
