If you need to fit your images to a particular size select the Custom option from the drop-down list. The Additonal Resize Options panel will open. Set the necessary Height and Width values using the keyboard.

Your image will be resized according to the specified height/width values. Make sure that the Keep original orientation option is checked. When this option is selected the long side of the picture will be resized according to the largest value for width/height, and the short side will be resized according to the smallest value. This allows to keep the original portrait or landscape orientation and minimize the image area loss.

Use the Navigation Panel below the Preview Area to navigate between all the imported images and preview them.
