Add an image scaling function


*Countless *times I have taken a full or partial (region) snapshot in order to paste into a document and the image is too large to be pasted / fit comfortably into the document. The imagine sizing abilities in some destination programs either corrupt the image and or are awkward to use.

I have to save the image from Greenshot's image editor to a file and then open in an image editor (e.g. Photoshop or Gimp), scale the image and then copy the adjusted image to the document.

This is very slow and painful - a simple image scaling function in Greenshot would be much easier and a logical addition to all the current tools in this fantastic image capture program that I, and my colleagues, have come to rely on for technical documentation.

Thank you so much for that !

When did these come in - I have never noticed them before. I have been
meaning to ask for an enhancement to add these for several years but never
got around to it.

These will save me a great deal of time.

However if would point out that if you re-size a picture AFTER you have
added objects (such as arrows or counters) these objects are not resized
with the picture and the result is a mess or overlarge objects crushed up
together. It is more common to resize a picture just before you copy the
image and after you have added objects and markup so these need to re-size
with the picture.

I'm not really sure why you would save the capture from the image editor to a file, than open in in another application when the editor already can scale the image? It's the icon on the bottom in the left.
