 Additional editing options are available on the right side under the Scale Image and Image Crop section as shown below. Click them to open as shown.  When scaling an image, you must put the ratio into the fields and then click the Scale button to make the change.  Scaling an image allows you to change the size of the image (the “scale”) without changing the proportions or distorting the image.  In general, you may reduce the size of an image without causing distortion or fuzziness, but you cannot significantly increase the size of an image without causing it to become blurry.
