    GIMP: how to fit 2 scanned images onto one page if together they're too wide/tall ?

    I have scanned two pages of text from a book which is only 4.5 x 7 inches (12 x 18 cm) in size, and want to paste the two scanned images into one GIMP image editor page, so I can print them as one page and email it to others so they can do the same. But when I import the two scanned images into GIMP and then paste them into one GIMP page, they exceed the width of the page. How do I either increase the size of the GIMP page or decrease the size of the scanned images, so they will fit onto the one GIMP page? Thank you !

    Use the scale tool in GIMP to resize the images.

    Thank you-- very helpful. I clearly need to learn more about how to manipulate images and adjust to size in GIMP, but this will take care of the problem for now.

    Yeah, seems like gimp is more complicated than Ubuntu itself, but it's a great program none the less.
