ebouchut / resize_image_increase_canvas_size
Last active August 29, 2015 14:16
Resize and increase the canvas size of an image to 225x100 using imagemagick
View resize_image_increase_canvas_size
# I want to resize an image from 600x128 to 225x100 while keeping its aspect ratio.
# Resizing the width to 225 while keeping the aspect ratio makes one dimension (height)
# smaller (225x48) than what I want to obtain (225x100).
# The workaround is to resize first,
# then increase the canvas of the other dimension (height)
# to obtain the desired size (225x100) then center the image in the canvas.
