proportional scale wheel

It would be useful to have an online proportional scale wheel. It converts an images present measurements to a different size while maintaining the proportions of the original width and height. I've looked online and not found a site that performs this conversion.

I suggested that a while back but alas, no luck yet. Maybe now with another request, the MAN might consider it.

Power to the PEOPLE!!! :mrgreen:

It's a good suggestion, but cannot be done with the same program as all other conversions on the site. You see, currently you enter one value and it gets converted to all others. For image measurements you'll need to enter two dimentions and then scale them both. That's another problem and it requires another program. We'll think about it, but I can't promise it will be done quickly.

Having an online proportional scale would be VERY convenient for graphic artists & designers that work with larger measurement conversions. Standard proportional scales are limited to 100" maximum size. Difficult to determine exact % needed for larger dimensions. Any ideas?? Needing to convert 2.25" to 246" ??

From what I can see, it has been two years since someone posted about hoping to find an online proportional scale wheel.

Has anyone discovered one yet?

e-mail me at if you know where one is, thanks!

i found a wheel call proportional scale in Micheals (art supply store).
It is for inches.
it gives a percentage of orginal size; number of times of reduction; orginal size; and reproduction size.
the wheel if very handly for art.
Any way check it out the company that makes it is "the C-Thru ruler company" in Bloomfield, CT
