Hello ,
I started using pixelmator last week , it is an amazing app, but im still having some problems to do some simple things.
I would like to know how can i resize an element ... but i would like to set the proper height and width .
Im sure this is really basic , but in the free transform i get only to set the % of it , but it does not help since im trying to make 4 pics in the same size , and they are all completely different sizes now.
Thanks
Sebastiaan

Hello Guizones. If you ctrl+click on the text-area where you normally would fill out the size in percentages, you can choose from a whole list of different units. I hope that helps you out.

Not sure exactly what you mean here. But if you want to crop your image to a specific size you can use the selection tools. Make a selection roughly the size and shape you want your crop to be. Then ctrl+click inside the selection and choose "transform selection..." from the menu that appears. Now you can enter the exact size of your selection in the tool options palette at the top of your document window.

After this ctrl+click inside your selection again and choose "crop...". Confirm the crop with the crop-button at the right of the tool options bar.
