I've been sick with a bad cold, and my judgement wasn't all that great. Instead of keeping with my format of Eight by Thirteen, I goofed and used a Ten by Thirteen drawing space instead for one page. I'd like to resize this to six by ten to fit the format of my other pages. Can this be done in PSP9? Hopefully?

You should be able to do that kind of thing easily. I'm not very familiar with Paint Shop Pro, but there should be a menu option called “resize image” or “resize canvas” that will do that for you. Be careful though, because I think “resize canvas” in Photoshop is different than “resize canvas” in PSP. You want the one that shrinks, not crops. If it isn't the right one, you can just Edit -> Undo :)

Thanks skool monkey. When I get to that point I'll give it a try.

It may not be so simple. If you DREW your comic 10" wide , yes, you can scale it to match the others - but if you scale it exactly, your art will be distorted, and if you just scale the width, the image will be shorter than the others.

In your case I would JUST scale the width and let it be. Maybe after eliminating outside white space by cropping.

Yeah, I came to that conclusion too. I used a proportion wheel and I'm going to according to that. I measured the width and it gave me an indication of 70 percent.
