resizing pictures
« on: Sep 17, 2004, 06:22:19 PM »
BigMike make this topic sticky please

first you'll need a program to do it go there and download InfranView http://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm
run the .exe be carefull not to instal ebay tool bar and those other crap you don't want them. :nonono:
when it's on the file association thing, If you want InfranView to be your default picture viewer select all other then that continue to next step.(hit ok or next till the end)

By default it should be installed in c:\program files\infranView

Resizing the picture

go to the picture you want to resize right click on it then click on open with then search for infranView (c:\program files\infranView). Note if you choose to make infran view your default viewer just click on the image and it should open in it.

in InfranView hit the ctrl+R keys the resizing window will pop-up.

select set new size as a pourcentage of original and be sure that preserve aspect ratio is selected at the bottom.
resize to something like 70% then ok. If the pic is still too big hit ctrl+R and ...

when done go to file, save as, in the bottom rolldown menu select jpeg or jpg then click on save.(save it where you want it)


EDIT By BigMike:

Another simple and easy to use Picture Resizer is Microsoft's own "Image Resizer Powertoy". Download and install using this link: http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe

Once installed you'll see these options whenever you right-click on an image or a group of images (thank you WillyMammoth for the screen shots):
Notice the third menu option of "Resize Pictures"


This box appears after you select "Resize Pictures". I recommend using either the 640x480 or 800x600 options for uploading images to our forum!


Thanks, BigMike

when you go to save a pic, you hit save picture as...., then, in the window that pops up, under the filename that you want it, it will have the file type.

then, once the new window appears, re-name the file whatever you want to call it, then, below the file name box, there will be the save as type box. If you hit the arrow on that, it will make it to select whatever type of file you would like to make it.  :welcome:

Another thing you can do is go to your Paint program, open your picture there, go to Image, then Stretch/Skew, then type in the percentage of the original size that you want it...

That's how I do it anyway.....

Yep. MSPaint is free and already installed. I've been using it to resize pics for years. It's also great for converting one picture format to another (like BMP to JPG/GIF) and for handling screenshots

Nope. Just "one of those folks" that doesn't like installing new software when I already have software that does the same thing. But if you do, more power to you, I won't belittle you for doing it different than I do... cause I'm one of THOSE folks... ;)
