The way to resize using Picasa is by using the Export command. It allows you to specify the longest side in terms of pixels, it will adjust the other side accordingly. To control both dimensions, you need to crop accordingly before the export. The file size will also be determined automatically although you can specify Image Quality – even at the highest, your exported photo will be much smaller file size than the original.
Here are the videos you should watch:
- pics34.Resizing Pictures (this is an old video but everything in it is still accurate, and it goes into explanation of pictures sizes)
- pics57.Resizing Pictures to Width and Height (this explains the way to crop first, then export)
- pics55.Resizing a Batch of Pictures
