For future reference.

Unless it's an olllld version of Works, the wp program in Works should be a "real Word." To resize the picture, you need to click on the picture, then click View from the top toolbar, click toolbars and put a check by the "Picture." If you set the checkmark by the Picture toolbar while an image is selected, the toolbar will disappear when you move to something else, and will "pop up" when you click on the next picture. (If you set the View | Toolbars | Picture while an image is NOT selected, the toolbar will stay up all the time, until you close it.) Use the "paintbucket" to get all the edit features in one Window, and the "Size" tab. Make sure the "Lock Aspect Ratio" box has a check mark in it, and set width to 100% to make the picure the same size as the original.

Perseverence pays off?

I haven't found a paper cutter particularly good for precision trimming, since the paper tends to "suck in" as the blade comes down, but if you've got a good one it's ok. I usually use my pocket knife and a steel ruler, on a cutting mat; but you do need a sharp knife with a straight cutting edge and a sharp point. Most people would resort to an X-Acto, but I always feel the need to sharpen them before they're equal to the one in my pocket.
