    In the xamarin android, you do not need library to resize the image, just wirte a method, set the width and height by yourself.

    public byte[] ResizeImage(byte[] imageData, float width, float height)
            // Load the bitmap 
            BitmapFactory.Options options = new BitmapFactory.Options();// Create object of bitmapfactory's option method for further option use
            options.InPurgeable = true; // inPurgeable is used to free up memory while required
            Bitmap originalImage = BitmapFactory.DecodeByteArray(imageData, 0, imageData.Length, options);
            float newHeight = 0;
            float newWidth = 0;
            var originalHeight = originalImage.Height;
            var originalWidth = originalImage.Width;
            if (originalHeight > originalWidth)
                newHeight = height;
                float ratio = originalHeight / height;
                newWidth = originalWidth / ratio;
                newWidth = width;
                float ratio = originalWidth / width;
                newHeight = originalHeight / ratio;
            Bitmap resizedImage = Bitmap.CreateScaledBitmap(originalImage, (int)newWidth, (int)newHeight, true);
            using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream())
                resizedImage.Compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.Png, 100, ms);
                return ms.ToArray();

    @LeonLu thank you for your answer. But I do not have a way to get the image width or height. As stated in the question "...and get the image dimensions."
