Default ...easily sets the physical printed size of photo

There are plenty of photo imaging progs out there but I just want to open the program, open a picture, click on resize or whatever and then type in the physical size of the printed picture I want (in inches or cms) and the the photo prints out EXACTLY that size, with resolution, detail etc. retained. Nothing I have looked at so far does that and most of them talk in pixels or percentages and/or just refer to the image size as retained on the computer. Also, a lot of them go into really technical details of editing etc. I know how to crop/rotate/adjust brightness/contrast etc. I just want to print a result at an exact size of my (or should I say her ) choosing.

I recently helped my son with a school project that required different photos of famous people. I ran into the problem of pictures all being different sizes and we need all the pictures to be the same size. I was able to do that with Gimp. It took a little figuring out, but by using the resize option I managed to make identical sized pictures. I wouldn't call the process simple but it wasn't overly complicated either.
Good Luck

I think Photofiltre will do it. It certainly lets you choose the size in cm. It's so long since I printed a pic and I doubt very much I got a ruler out to check it was exact but it was sufficient for my purposes then. I don't have a link handy, sorry.

Other than trying to Google "Freeware picture resizer by inches" and getting
several free online aps try this one:

Picture Resize

"Choose or create preset sizes to quickly set the height and width of an image using 6 different scales such as pixels, points and inches, automatically maintain aspect ratio to keep proportions while resizing. "
