You want simple? Install nautilus-image-converter It adds two context menu items in nautlius so you can right click and choose "Resize Image". (The other is "Rotate Image"). You can do a whole directory of images in one go if you like and you don't even have to open up an application to do so. Very simple to use, very simple to configure.

All the information is on the wiki. I suspect these are going to evolve over the next few weeks so I won't copy-paste them here for now. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuTV/Contributing There is now a PPA from WebUpd8's Alin Andrei.

If you're just doing a couple of images, most image editors in Ubuntu (Gimp, F-Spot, etc) will let you do a basic resize. If you want to edit tens, hundreds or thousands of images, I prefer Phatch.

kdenlive is (in my experience) the easiest software which will allow you to perform that task in a few steps and without problems. Even so, the OpenShot Video Editor project is also useful but it yet needs lots of hard work to get closer to the kdenlive.

Also do not combine those packages with ...
