Can you resize an image and only show the new Image

please format code with </> button * homework policy * asking questions

Hi, so I have an easy question (I think). I’m trying to show an image and then resize it. Is there a way to only display the resized image and not the original?
(This is probably a dumb question, but I’ve tried everything I can and haven’t found anything on the internet either)

The short answer is yes, you can resize an image to show only the new image.
But I think a little more information is required for a good answer.
For example, in what manner do you want to resize the object?
Do you want it to be timing based?
Please elaborate a bit more.



Many ways to do that
