Resize UIImage by keeping Aspect ratio and width

I seen in many posts for resizing the image by keeping aspect ratio. These functions uses the fixed points(Width and Height) for RECT while resizing. But in my project, I need to resize the view based on the Width alone, Height should be taken automatically based on the aspect ratio.
anyone help me to achieve this.


The method of Srikar works very well, if you know both height and width of your new Size. If you for example know only the width you want to scale to and don't care about the height you first have to calculate the scale factor of the height.

+(UIImage*)imageWithImage: (UIImage*) sourceImage scaledToWidth: (float) i_width
    float oldWidth = sourceImage.size.width;
    float scaleFactor = i_width / oldWidth;

    float newHeight = sourceImage.size.height * scaleFactor;
    float newWidth = oldWidth * scaleFactor;

    UIGraphicsBeginImageContext(CGSizeMake(newWidth, newHeight));
    [sourceImage drawInRect:CGRectMake(0, 0, newWidth, newHeight)];
    UIImage *newImage = UIGraphicsGetImageFromCurrentImageContext();    
    return newImage;
