In gimp I imported two separate images as separate layers into an image. I'm trying to resize one of these images so that it better matches the other. How can I do this?

I tried right clicking on the image, and selecting "scale," but it just scales the whole image, not just the one image that I'm trying to change.

I tried the scale tool. As I change the size of the image it gives a preview of what the size of the new image. But when I click the button to make the changes, it seems to do it, but in the end the image is still there, unchanged.

  1. Select the Layer you want to scale. In your Layer selection dialog.
  2. In the menu bar of the main window select Layer or press Alt+L
  3. Go down to Scale Layer... or press S
  4. Happy scaling

Hope this is what you wanted.
