When adding images to your Impact report template, Paint 3D can be used to resize an image to fit within the sizing guidelines provided.
If you do not currently have Paint 3D application installed on your computer, you can download it for free at the Microsoft store website. (Available for Windows 10 or higher)
To resize an image:
Step 1: Open Paint 3D
- To open Paint 3D, type Paint 3D in the search box on the taskbar located in the lower left-hand corner of your screen, and then select Paint 3D from the list of results.
Step 2: Choose and open image
- Select the menu bar (located on the upper left-hand corner of your screen)
- Select Open
- Select the image you would like to download by selecting the Browse files button
Step 3: Resize image with canvas
- Once your image is open in Paint 3D, select the canvas button from the menu options on the top toolbar
- In the sidebar, select the following:
- Lock aspect ratio
- Resize image with canvas
- Pixels in the dropdown menu
- Using the parameters provided by Impact for the image (eg. 900 pixels high x 900 pixels wide), enter the maximum height or width under Height and Width (you will be able to edit the measurement you did not select in the next step)
By using the lock aspect ratio, the height and width numbers will remain connected so that when you change one, the other will automatically adjust. This is used so your image does not become distorted.
Step 4: Crop the photo to achieve the correct size
- Once you have the correct height or width for your image (depending on what you adjusted in step 3), select the crop button from the menu bar.
- Crop the image to achieve the correct image size in both height and width by adjusting the lines around the image.
- The crop box can also be moved to select the portion of the photo you want by dragging the box with your pointer
- Click Done when you have the cropped outline where you want it.
Step 5: Save image
- Select the Menu button in the top left corner of your screen.
- Select Save and save the edited image to a folder. You will upload this image into Fundriver Impact later by accessing this folder and selecting the image.
