Excuse me for the newbie question. Is there a way to simply scale down an image to a certain percentage? I just switched from GIMP, and after designing certain images that I have to make regularly, I also need to make a mini version at 18% of the size. Is there a simple way to do this, or do I need to do the math outside the program, figure out what 18% is, and then scale it to the right pixel count? Tell me it ain't so..

Here's how it looks in GIMP, so that you know what I'm looking for:

Use Document > Resize then, in either the width or height box, enter 18%. Ensure that the lock symbol is closed (which it is by default) to maintain the Aspect Ratio..

There is no dropdown selection for Percentages but you can just enter the percentage value in the "Size" field(s)

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

I can't thank you enough. This is perfect. It's exactly what I needed. I can't tell you how happy I am.
