The image viewer (come-editor) that’s included in Chrome OS is useful enough, right?

That is until you want to resize an image. Chrome’s built-in image editor can’t handle anything that exotic.

At least, not yet.

Photo Resizing Coming Soon


Native image resizing support is headed to the Chromebook image editor. It will allow you to resize any compatible image (.jpg, .png, etc.) to a custom image size, both constrained (fixed ratio) and unconstrained.

You can see the design proposal for the new feature in the screenshot above.

While this one small feature won’t single handedly cause a stampede to the Chromebook aisle at Walmart it will, small though it is, buff the current experience and help make Chrome OS that little bit more useful to the average Joe.
