We recently shared a link to the MerchInformer blog about how to resize images for Merch by Amazon hoodies. In case you weren’t aware, that is currently the only product on Merch by Amazon with unique dimension requirements.
Most products require images 4500×5400 pixels. For hooded sweatshirts, the dimensions must be 4500px x 4050px. In the MerchInformer post. Neil discussed changing the dimensions using Photoshop and a custom script. This is great if you need to resize a lot of images quickly and you have Phtotoshop.
However, if you don’t have Photoshop and/or are only looking to resize a handful at a time, perhaps as you go to upload designs each day, there’s an easy, free alternative to resize your images.
We looked at quite a few sites that came up in search results when looking for a way to resize PNG files. Many of the sites distorted the images, while we were only looking to change the outer dimensions, leaving the actual design intact. This site was also the least confusing in terms of what to click on vs what to avoid, as the goal of many of these free sites is to get you to click on an ad.
