How to RESIZE images
« on: April 19, 2011, 16:58 »
Resource is valuable and large images attached take up these resources on the forum. Please resize your pics before uploading. Here is ONE way to do it:

TO RESIZE:

1. Go to the folder in your PC where the photo is saved
2. Right click the image
3. Go to "Open With" and choose Microsoft Office Picture Manager
4. On the top menu click on "Edit Picture"
5. On the menu that pops up, click on "Compress Picture"
6. Choose "Compress for Web Pages"
7. Go to File - choose save
8. Close program
9. Your photo has now been compressed big time  ;D

You could also crop your image (i.e. trim the edges)
1. See Step 4 above
2. Click Crop
3. Click and drag little black dashes on the edge of the pic
4. Click OK
5. Save and close

Thank you for your cooperation  :)

This program might be worth a try, it's free.

List of FREE/PAID picture resizing applications

There are several applications that you can get which allow you to resize your pictures.
The following list is no where near comprehensive and will be added to as more applications are brought to my attention.

Paid (shareware or commercial) applications:

If I keep modifying this damn forum, I will never get out detecting.

I use Microsoft Paint (or just "Paint") on my computer to resize my pics. Its crude but it works
To resize:
1. Open your pic up in paint by right clicking on it, choosing "Open With" and then picking Paint (or if it is not on the list, go to "Choose Default Program"
2. In paint, go to the Image menu, and choose "Resize/Skew"
3. In the resize box enter your desired percentage. Dont forget to have the same percentage in the horizontal and vertical box if you want to keep the ratio of dimensions the same

To crop select the part you want to keep (using the select tool) Go to the "Image" menu and choose "Crop"

Another way is to see if you have an option to email the picture.

This could be in file explorer as a menu bar item or right click the picture and see if you have a "send to/email recipient" option.

In the options for emailing available to me I can choose a few sizes.  I use 800x600 which is a small size but good enough for computer screens.
Create the email then open it up.  Select the attachment "save as" in the same directory/folder as your original photo, if you like, and call it a new name or else you will overwrite your original picture.

Then attach to your post on the forum using the prompts once you open the "Attachments and other options" link below the text input box.

I use Faststone picture resizer.  Free from the web.  It crops as well as resizes the photo.  Also does renaming etc etc.  Easy to use.
Cheers

the best free easy program to use for resizing and touching up IMO
is PaintNET he is creater of Paint for microsoft

heres the link
http://www.getpaint.net/

when you have opened a photo click Image then click resize.

there are many plugins that can help fix up your photo's if you cannot afford to get photoshop or microsoft office.

cheers
