changing pixel size of jpg image

Asked by Esther Guedea on 2018-08-07

I want to enlarge a jpg image, but first I need to know what its pixel ratio is to begin with. In Photoshop, I would go to the "Image" tool, then open "Image Size", which would then have a pop-up box where both of these tasks could be done, once I set the pixel ratio for the size resolution I wanted.

So what are the steps for doing this in Inkscape?

P.S. I'm not tech-savvy, so please describe in baby steps--Thank you!

Inkscape isn't the right software for this kind of operation. It does not work on pixels, but on paths that are defined by mathematical formulas. It is a vector graphics editor, not a photo / raster graphics editor.

If you would like to use another free and open source software, like Inkscape, for this task, download our open source 'sister' Gimp from https://gimp.org .

Can you help with this problem?
