Hello, I have some images that I want to modify to a specific dimension (591 X 300) but the image is taller than wider which causes the image to become stretched. How in paint.net would I make this image look right. I've attached a couple of the images I'm trying to modify
Y-HS-11--1-.png

You have 2 choices on how to do this without distorting the image.
change only one dimension using Image -> Resize in order to keep the same aspect ratio
Resize the image to slightly larger than the desired size (again keeping the aspect ratio) and crop the image to the desired size - in this case you may lose some of the image

For example, if you keep the correct aspect ratio for the image Y-HS-11--1-.png, the new size will be 380x300. If you crop to 591x300, you lose some of the image

Here are the results:591 X 300380x300

Question, I didn't understand the following:

How do I resize the image to be bigger without it being fuzzy?
