Image resizing can be necessary for many different occasions. If you are submitting a portfolio, the company may require you to attach your professional details along with a business card-sized photo. Online employment forms also request details of your qualifications along with a business card-sized image. In all these instances, you need to change the size of an existing image to a business card size. The standard business card is 2 inches by 3.5 inches.
