Resize and crfop an image

Hi

I am very new to GIMP, and I am sure what I am trying to do is quite straight forward but I can not work it out. Please help!

I have some massive images that I need to resize for a WordPress website feature image (1200 x 600). I need to resize and crop them, but I would like to be able to adjust where the crop ends up being so I can see clearly and choose which bits of the original image end up being in the new version. How do I do that all please?

TIA!

See if this link works for you:

You do realise that scaling down by any considerable amount loses quality

however

one way is https://youtu.be/-qDUdMCcZ_o duration 2 min 20 secs

That's a good tutorial, but in case you're unclear on how the Fixed: Aspect Ratio works: you can type in your desired image size, e.g. 1200:600 (or you can use 12:6, or any other two numbers that have the same ratio, like 2:1). Once you've set the fixed aspect ratio, Click in the image and drag out the rectangle to show the parts you want, then click inside the rectangle you just dragged to finish the crop.

Then use Image->Scale, set the Width to 1200 and hit Tab: the Height will magically turn to 600, just what you want. Click Scale, and your image is ready to export to whatever image type you need.
