Thanks Gregory. It comes up with Gimp is missing. Is that key to resizing
the images.? I am downloading one from www.gimp.org. Then I look in
external tools and locate the program? Sorry if this all pretty basic to
you. I've done loads of goood, smaller projects without all this info!

If you look at Properties > Image you can check the image DPI for
whatever size you have made your image frame. You would likely be
disappointed in 110 dpi in your final product. 150 - 300 dpi is more
likely to be satisfactory. There are some instances where > 300 might be
desirable, but not for most purposes.
This may be of some help:
