What do you mean by it becomes crumpled? How does it looks like when it is crumpled? Can you show us an example too~?

The normal way to resize images is either to use CTRL+T which brings out the transformation tool and stretch your picture up or down, hold ctrl while stretching if you don't want your picture to loose it's original aspect ratio. Using transform tool make sure you don't transform a few times because it can destroy the quality of a picture, just once and then applying should be enough. Resizing it a few times up and down even without applying or pressing ok could but not necessarily would destroy its quality~ ^^

The other one is to look at the top, the options there and click on image---image size. If it's set to cm or any other metric format you can change it to px which means pixels. Change your picture there. Again, the best quality is by just changing it once~ If you need to do it many times then you can use ctrl+z or alt+ctrl+z to undo what you did, so you can repeat as if nothing has happened~

Resizing an image works best for downsizing it, up-scaling it would always destroy its quality unless it's a vector image~

Well I hope such things would help you at least a bit~ ^^
