I know this has been beat to death,but had to have my computer cleaned and lost my resizer,anyone know a easy to use program? Thanks
I use Picassa from google
I use Fast Stone Photo Resizer at:
and really like it, has a lot of functionality and not to hard to figure out, plus it's free.
David I downloaded faststone a couple weeks ago but haven't figured it out!
Very powerful, but you can do simple resizing by just loading your picture, then picking "Resize/Resample..." on the Image menu.
. . . and it's free.
I use IrfanView, lots of people use it. Works great and it's free at downloads.com
I know many have trouble resizing pictures. My favorite tool is:
All you do is install, then drag and drop your photo file on to the icon, and your photo is resized to whatever you want. Take a second and read the instructions - it will be your friend for life.
I guarantee there is no easier way if all you want to do is resize.
just downloaded IrfanView,what do I click to resize?
When the app is running the left side of the window is where the source photos will be displayed. It uses standard windows navigation tools to locate folders and files (pictures).
I would create a folder and make copies of several photos and copy the duplicates to this folder. I will create another folder inside of this folder called "resized". I set the app to copy the resized photo to this one so the full size and resized photos are not all mixed up.
I would just play with these photos to test all the functionality of the Photo Resizer, the more you play with it the easier it will be to use. As long as you don't use it commercially there is no fees for using it.
If you have any questions just send me a PM and I'll help you through it. I am a retired software engr so should be able to talk you through it.
Hey gotter er done,thanks for the help!Did the drop and drag.
If you're using a Mac, just make a copy of the picture so you can keep the original, open the copy, click TOOLS, click ADJUST SIZE, change the size until you have 194 KB or less, click OK, and you're done.
just set toe with my new tool!If I go another round it 's toed in to much.
Randall, Ya done good!
Thanks to all!
Bud, I tried yours! After it installed 2 piles of garbage, it took a half hour to clean up. It may be easy to use, but, I'm not smart enough to get it!
I download a free program called "picture resize", downloaded easily and seems stable.
I used Buds,got it to work but I am probly doing it the hard way,I minimize screen,click on resizer, it pops up,click my pictures it covers resizer,drag pic over on desktop,close my pic,click and drag pic from desktop back to resizer,bound to be a shorter route.
The quickest and easiest one I know for Windows PC's.
I never could get irfanview to do anything for me. The imageresizer for windows refered by John Aldrich was simple enough even I was able to do it.
If you are using a PC, you already have a resizer.
Open your photo with Paint. You can resize by pixel or percent. Works well. -- John
