Can we make a sticky about resizing pics?

That way, when a newbie comes in, we can just link them to the thread that has everyone's suggestions... what works, what doesn't... what freeware is out there, or what software options people might have that they don't realize are already on their PC, etc.

Two free programs for resizing pictures:

IrfanView

Picassa2

I have no personal experience with IrfanView, but have seen it recommended by many here on 'Lit'

I use Picassa2 all the time for resizing and find it very easy to use. The ‘cropping’ tool is pure simplicity.

The one little thing I don't like about Picassa2 is that the first time it's ran on an account it has a default to 'Completely scan your P.C for pictures'

No problem if the P.C is used exclusively by you or your partner(s) but if you share the P.C with kids it can easily lead to an embarrassing situation.

If you do decide to install Picassa2 I would advise running it on each account on the P.C and using the 'Remove folder from Picassa' option and selecting the same option when you're finished working on your photographs. (The option to remove is in the ‘Folder’ tab)

You can even resize in Paint, which I'm pretty sure comes standard with most Windows operating systems.

Here's what you do: You open your file, then go to Image, and then Stretch/Skew. A box will appear, and the settings you change are in the two first options to change (Stretch: Horizontal or Vertical - in percentage). Since they are in percents, you need to make them smaller than 100%. If it's not small enough, then just hit undo and go to a smaller percent. This will resize your entire photo, but not crop it in any way. If you want to keep proportions, then resize both Horizontal and Vertical to the same percentage.

Thank you both.

If you have MS Office installed, you will also likely have MS Photo Editor, which will allow you to do some resizing.

LOL Nope. A lot of newbies have commented that they couldn't attach pics to their posts because the file size was too big. Not necessarily the dimensions.

Again, I wasn't referring to the dimensions of the pic, but of the file size so that newbies could attach pics to their posts.

If I had my way, no images would be allowed in sigs unless they were smaller than avatar size, and then only one or two, but on the same horizontal line instead of stacked or whatever.

Pix done easy

There is another easy way.
Within windows xp, there is Microsoft Office Picture Manager.
Right click on a pic / the 'open with / choose 'picture manager'.
It is part of office so it is already within your PC.
Once pic is open , choose 'edit picture' then resize. There's a few options available.
Its just too friggin easy for words.
More flesh the better, obviously!

Yes, but not everyone has MS Office on their PC.

There's always using pic hosting sites like Image Shack to browse from your computer and then show off the pics in a link.

Like This

That way you can make it as big as you want.

I have the newer version-- people who have the older version of MSO (2003, I think) say it is a much better tool for resizing

By far the most simple way to resize pics. Once you have downloaded it for free you can access it by simply clicking on the pic you want to resize and it gives you the option.

Here's the link to download http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx

It also has to be under 15 kilobytes. Keep the pixels at 150x150 and reduce kilobytes.

I have a photo editor that allows me to re-save a pic at any percentage of it's original resolution I choose.
How many kilobytes are your 150x150 ones?

They're about 22.65kb.....I've been using an online photo editor to crop and resize coz it does it in squares which my own software doesn't, but it only resizes in pixels.

I notice my own software has the percentage resize....so basically I have to figure out what percentage it is and adjust accordingly?
