Hello. I had a question and I was hoping somebody could help me. I have photos that I need to resize to a bigger size (stretch them a bit), and then I need to increase the size of the canvas. I usually do this to a batch of photos using Photoshop CS5. But now I am forced to use a different computer that doesn't have the software. Is there a free software that does this?

I have about 100 photos of products with white backgrounds. They are 300x300p. I want to stretch them to 400x400, then make the canvas 500x500. Making the canvas 500x500 pixels essentially adds white space for the extra 100 pixels without stretching the product.

So far I have tried gimp and it really made my head hurt. I know there are a lot of free photo editors out there that support batch processing, and maybe one of you can point me in the right direction. I also need the canvas edit to work with batch processing. Thanks!

If this is a one-off, why not download the trial version of CS6 and use that? LINK (external link)

LOL, for the short run yes that will work :cool: Thanks.

I am still open to any other ideas.
