Builder, if I understand your dificulty on resizing- in MS Paint you should be able to find resizing options in the "Image" menu under "Attributes..."; I'm working with an older version of MS Paint, but I'm hoping they kept most things the same.
If I remember correctly [Damien, please correct me if necessary], the vector program that Damien was reffering to is Adobe Illustrator. DrawPlus 4 by Serif can be found here: http://www.freeserifsoftware.com/ - I'm not absolutly sure if it is vector or not, I've heard some say yes, some no.
Personally, I use Adobe Photoshop 5 and resize/print using Microsoft Word.
Even though this is an old topic and Legend more than likely got the answer already, to be thorough;
To resize in MS Word:
-I've heard that newer versions of Word do the cm conversions automatically. But if you don't have access to a new version of Word (or Word at all), I look on the internet for cm to inches convertors (I think there's a site called www.onlineconversions.com )
-Open MS Word, open/create a new document and insert the decal by going to the "Insert" menu, choosing "Picture", "From File..." find/choose your picture and click "Insert"
-Once the picture is in the document, click on the picture to select it. Right-click to pull down the options menu and select "Format Picture...", click on the "Size" tab, and adjust the height and widths to the sizes you want (of course you can also use the scaling feature if you know the exact scale it should be- i.e.: most of my templates get resized to about 31%).
With MS Word you can then place more decals on a sheet to mass print a bunch of them and to save paper.
I hope that helps.
sorry im still a newbie man i dont notice those small things
and can you tell me the exact lengths and widths of the torso and arms and stuff?
i was just shrinking and guessing if it would fit, youve made my life easier Damien, I thank you deeply =DEdit: it isnt working at all is there anything else i can re-size with?
oh and when i copy and paste i can't understand this part like the lengths what's the point for like 1.322 or w/e it said i don't get it if it's centimetersThose are the sizes that you need to resize the decal to. It's centimeters. You can resize using centimeters with the free imaging program Irfanview.
ms word is Microsoft Word right?
