GIMP: Resize Picture

I know that is basic (and probably obvious) but how do you resize a picture that you add to a new image.

What do you mean by "resize"?

What do you mean by "resize"? As in size as in MB or "resize" as in dimensions?

from your very basic

from your very basic 'description' it sounds like you want to scale a layer.

find the scale tool on the Toolbox. hovering over the icons will bring up text.

it should say "Scale Tool: Scale the layer, selection, or Path"

click on that tool making sure your layer is also selcted (the one you want to scale) and go for it. I suggest your click on "keep aspect" in the tookbox unless you want to distort the scalling operation.

Click on Image on the toolbar and then select "Scale Image" to resize the whole picture.

Good luck!
