assuming you don't own something like Adobe Photoshop - I would recommend a program called IrfanView - its free and should do exactly what you want, plus a host of other functions.

Good Luck

Thanks.

One more question, suppose the original size (pixel) of picture is 9.1" x 6.0" but I need to resize it as 12" x 16", does it mean Adobe Photoshop will add more pixel to the orginal picture ? Will that implies that the picture will be distorted, or blurred ??

Thanks again.

if the original image is in the size of 12 x 8 and you want it to resize to 12 x 16
it's not gonna work properly....because the desired size is not in the proportion of the original size

you have to crop the image to fit the desired size
photoshop comes with a crop tool which can crop the images to the desired sizes

otherwise with any other standard image editing software, you have to increase the size of the original image and then have to cur it accordind to the desried size

any change in the size will effect the resolution and quality of the photo
with PS you can retouch the image to make it clear
but still it can't be EXACTLY like the original one if you are strectching or shortening it too much
