You can find out what your size is by referencing your invoice, or the items listing on our website (size located in millimeters next to the item number). You will also need to choose your paper size at this time (bottom left hand corner – you are using 4x6 paper). BONUS: The EZ Resizer with EZ Crop software ™ can resize to any custom size or shape to be used in other craft/scrapbooking projects.
  3. Select “Add and crop image”. Select the image from your computer. The image will open into EZ-Crop mode. Click “Select area to crop”. Click and drag your mouse to select the desired area. You will need to crop the photo into a square. The “desired ratio” feature in the bottom right hand corner should help you crop your image to the correct dimensions. Just drag the crop tool until the actual ratio matches the “desired ratio” If you do not crop the image correctly, you may experience some stretching or distortion when your file is generated. At this time, you may also choose to save a copy of the cropped image to your computer using the check box in the bottom right hand corner. When you are done selecting the area you wish to crop, select “Crop selected area” and then “Add image to program”.
