After changing the values, click the button to right of the height field to view your changes. NOTE: It is advised that you DO NOT use cascade to scale your images to a larger size. Doing so will cause pixelization and reduced image quality.
Clicking the chain link icon will toggle whether the width and height values will change in proportion to each other.

The flip buttons will invert an image on either its vertical or horizontal axis.
