Fit it for iPad FREE: make your pictures fit any size
By Wim de Nood
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Fit It is the easiest and fastest tool to resize or crop your photos to an exactly fitting size for several purposes: for background or wallpaper on widescreen or normal monitors, for full-size prints on A4/A5/A5 etc, for standard photo-frame sizes, or for any other custom size you prefer.
Pictures made with your iPad or camera are usually the wrong size for wallpaper or background on your home computer (widescreen or normal screen). Your photos probably also need some cropping to make them fit for full-size prints on a4/a3, etc and for a lot of photo-frames. This app is a very easy-to-use dedicated tool to crop your pictures to the right size for any output size.
With Fit It, you can resize, rotate, flip and crop a picture until you have the right size for any device or print. The app will make sure that your photo gets the correct aspect ratio (width vs. height ratio) and will maintain the highest possible output resolution without stretching the photo. You can however change the output resolution to a lower value. Whatever you like!
* Widescreen monitors (16:9)
* Normal monitors (4:3)
* A6/A5/A4/A3/etc in both landscape and portrait (all DIN sizes).
* Photo-frames in both landscape and portrait:

- 20 x 25 (8 x 10 inch)
- 28 x 35 (11 x 14 inch)
- square (aspect ratio 1:1)
* You can add, edit and delete any custom layout with any custom aspect ratio. So if your prefered layout is not in the list above, don't worry. You can add yours yourself.
* move image with one finger gesture
* resize image with two finger gestures
* live calculation of output size
* flip selected image horizontal / vertical
* rotate selected image in steps of 90 degrees
* save result to photo library
* save result + e-mail directly as jpg file
* post result directly to twitter (iOS5 only)
* scale image down before saving or emailing.
* app settings (iPad-> Settings -> Fit It) to switch between mm and inch

Somewhat Nice, Mostly Frustrating.
I do not understand this application. I get how everything works, but the limitations set in place are ridiculous to me! The app has an assortment of default size presets, basically it gives the exact same sizes a standard printer will offer you. It also has a "Custom Layout" section, but unlike a real printer, this feature I have found to be basically useless and pointless. I wanted to create custom presets for sizes like 1920x1080 (my iMac desktop resolution), and other various sizes like 1280x800 (my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet resolution), and quite a few others.
But this is where the insane problem lies, the max output size is something - 593x331. That is not the exact number, but it is extremely close to it. Seriously, the app can resize to a 16:9 widescreen size, but it will only let me make custom layouts up to 590x300?! What is the point or inane reasoning behind this? It makes no sense at all to me.
Why not just let the user determine the size on their own, regardless of the output quality? What need is there to impose an extremely small custom output size? It is beyond ridiculous to me, and I am going to search for a photo resizing app, that actually affords the user some sensible autonomy. For free I guess this might suit some needs, but I would gladly pay money for a professional application of this type.
Great for making Facebook cover photos
This is a simple app that does exactly what it says: fit a photo to a specific size. In the upper right corner, I click "edit custom layouts" and enter the dimensions for a Facebook cover photo (851x315). After I enter my photo and my photo becomes that size, I save it to my iPad and then edit the photo further in the app Phonto. This works great for creating custom Facebook cover photos for profiles and events. This is the method I use, since there is not a good all-in-one app for designing Facebook cover photos.
I purchased an HP airprint for my iPad and everything I sent to it was 8 1/2" x 11. I was so frustrated I went looking for an app I could purchase to fix the problem. That's when I found Fit It and it was FREE! I have been using it for everything! Kids school projects, work related documents, and coupons. I love the options to make anything, ANY size. It solved all my issues and I would give it more than five stars if I was able!
