Resize Images

PicMonkey makes it easy to resize images for your every need. Get exactly the size you want for social posts, photos, and design projects.

Crop Image vs. Resize Image

Crop: Cut areas from the image

Cropping chops areas out of your pic, e.g. to remove unwanted bits, or to cut a square from a rectangle.

Resize image: Shrink or expand the image

When you resize images, it transforms the original pic while scaling it down, or up (which decreases the quality).
