I would like to know if either Photoshop Express or Lightroom Moble apps have the ability to resize photos (in pixels) ?  I need an app that I can standardize on across iPhone/iPad and Android Phone/Tablet.  If not Adobe any suggestions.  Thank you.

Hi,

You can crop your photos to a particular aspect ratio in Photoshop Express App. But they don't have ability to resize as per your specification in pixels. Sorry for inconvenience.

Thanks,

Kusha

Why hasn't this been added as a feature?

Can this be added as a feature? There is the option to save as a smaller image always by preference, but it would be nice to be able to resize on demand, even if it wasn't by pixels, but at least a few options (e.g.: large, medium, small, etc)

That’s crazy. Adobe needs to work on that. 🤔

For the amount of money we pay Adobe monthly the fact that Adobe can't add the option to resize images in either Light room CC mobile or PS express is absolutely ridiculous. I can't say how many times I've needed to scale down an account pic (pintrest for example to 165x165 pxls) and the fact I have to go on to my computer to resize an object when I am holding a phone powerful enough to help pilot a space craft is ludicrous. Good thing the iPhone X (and the soon XS) is more expensive than some mid range Macbook Air but all I can do with my Adobe apps is edit my photos more or less exactly the same way as directly in the Instagram app already. Thanks for giving us a couple redundant apps that really serve no purpose to your design base.

The programs' shortcomings that prompted the original post here two years ago still exists today.

I used Photoshop for many years and loved it, but I downloaded Photoshop Express today for the first time and I'm just about to uninstall it.  (Desktop version).

It has a few features and a simple interface that I thought would work fine, but I can't get past the really unbelievable lack of image size information.  There's a resize function with a slider allowing me to resize via the long side - in 200 pixel increments.  Not great, but it could be usable - if the program showed me the other side.  How exactly am I supposed to know if I want to resize the pic if I DON'T KNOW WHAT SIZE THE PICTURE IS NOW?  What a joke.  Uninstalling.

Exactly - I just complained about it now in 2020. There is an app called PhotoCompress which I've been using that kind of works.  My son-in-law works at a mine north of the Artic Circle and they have a 6 Meg limit on email.  If I'm sending him pictures I have to trial and error to get it right. I think it's a disgrace that Adobe will not fix this problem.

Hi everyone

I think what we have to remember here is that although you can do an awful lot with Photoshop Express, it is still a very abridged version of the full Photoshop and cannot do everything.    It is a great program for beginners to photo editing and I do understand that once we can edit in one program we expect all versions to be able to do the same type of editing.  However, there is a crop tool and there are 34 different size templates that you can crop to which, in my opinion, is pretty good for free software.

When you select the share option you can see the pixel size of the image you are going to share before you attach it to email.  

If you are taking your images with a high end camera you could try taking a smaller image initially, for example a JPEG rather than a RAW file or reducing the quality from Fine to basic - this will reduce your file size before you import it to PS Express for editing.  Then if you want to reduce it further, you could crop into it.  

I hope the above helps - by the way, I don't work for Adobe and I don't get anything from them for singing their praises!

LOL, I just read your reply in 2020 about where your son works while I sit here at my computer in Fairbanks, AK...your son must be nearby me?  Small world.  >>>Yes, Adobe, I HATE the fact you don't allow custom photo resizing by pixel or inches.  I am so irritated by this I am actually typing my irritation into a box on your support page.  PLEASE FIX THIS!!!  I pay you $30 a month for the Adobe suite and I want an easy way to resize my images to exact dimensions without needing to boot up photoshop.

I don't quite get the complaints?... at least on iOS there definitely is (and has already been for quite some time) a feature to resize images in pixel.


As already stated, there's the crop tool letting you choose different aspect ratios or custom cropping - but for resizing you need to finish all of your editing and hit the "save/share" button. And right there, below the little preview image and above the options for watermarking, sharing to Social Media and what not... there's a little button showing you the current size of the image. Tap it and a list of suggested sizes will pop up, as well as a custom option at the bottom. Just enter your desired pixel size in numbers OR drag the slider to increase/decrease the size, then hit the back button and save your image.

Thanks MoonshineMist. I can now resize my images. Under the Custom Resize there's even a Make Square switch which is very useful 🙂
