We need more details. Your disk probably has multiple partitions, how are they laid out, and which do you need to resize? Contents of /etc/fstab and the output of fdisk -l run as root may be helpful.

how did you image it?

If you used something like dd, you can then copy the image created and mount it as a loopback filesystem. I would lay out the partitions/mounts/filesystems as you like, and then mount the image file, and copy things as needed with the appropriate arguments/switches to keep permissions intact. You could rsync if you wished.
