    • Resizing images in Gimp and Darktable Gimp is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It has been around for quite a while, and is now quite good, if a little sprawling. Darktable is a more recent, perhaps more modern, approach to photograph editing.   Usually one wishes to reduce the size, as in the number of pixels, of an image, as a last stage  of editing, or opens an edited file to produce a smaller one for display by projection or on screen.   Gimp. With the image open select the image menu, scale image, choose pixels as the option and give it the limiting number for height or width. By default the other number will be reduced to match. Probably reduce your number, now, by 2 or 4 pixels for a single or double edge. Click the button, and it is done. File: Export to export your scaled file, give it, usually, a name varied from the original - I append sRGB-1600 for a file for the screen which will be (is) 1600px in its longest, limiting, dimension.  The type of file, which will be JPEG, is set by adding the right file extension, .JPG to the name.   You want a border.
