5.5. Shrink Wrap

The Shrink Wrap command resizes the window so that it is exactly the same size as the image at the current zoom factor. If the image doesn't completely fit on the screen, the image window is enlarged so that the largest possible part of the image is shown. Please note that GIMP will do this automatically if you set the Resize window on zoom and Resize window on image size change options in the Image Window page of the Preferences dialog.

[Note] Note

Please note also that the behavior described here is not performed by GIMP itself, but by the window manager, a part of the operating system of your computer. For that reason, the functionality described may be different on your computer, or in the worst case, might not be available at all.

5.5.1. Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through ViewShrink Wrap,
