About 3 years ago, one of you guys told me how to resize pictures on my computer, with out using an outside program. It was very simple to set up about a minute to set up, and worked real well.
About a month ago, a virus that took that ability away.
I would like to get it back.
Don't know what program you used, but it's also very easy to use free web based resizers - like any of those you find easiest to work with:
(I have used some with success but not all of the above)
With Windows 8, I go to the pic and right click, and one of the choices in the box that appears is "resize photo".
Mac or Windows? If it was easy it must have been the former.
Here's how with Mac. Somebody else will have to cover MS.
Open the copy of the picture you want to reduce. (Keep the original in case you need it later.)
Click Tools at the top of the page.
Click Adjust Size.
Change the Height to the largest number that will give you a Resulting Size of no more than 194 KB.
With vertical format pictures, I limit my height to 720 pixels, even if it makes the file size considerably under 194 KB, so the picture won't be too tall for the screen.
For windows 7, right click the picture, from the resulting list click open with.... Paint.
In Paint click resize, then Click pixels and use 800. Click OK.. Save the new size by clicking on the down arrow box next to home.
800 px will create a file around 180k that is very useable on the forum or in email.

Does anyone know a link for Windows 8.1 and it's updates? Thanks.
Looks like the Windows 7 resizer above will work with Win 8.
OK Guys, I got it back.
Thanks so very much.
John Saylor....Thankyou so much! Works for me! Nevin.
ok! I don't know much about computers but why do we have to resize our pixs?? on our overland site its 1-2 click done, just like e-bay no matter what size your pixs is. maybe we need to buy a better format??? I would donate.charley
I believe some sites have internal software that resizes automatic. Another way is to set the camera to a smaller resolution. You don't need 8+ megapixels if you are only going to view on your computer or the web. Most digital cameras have a function menu to do this. John
john!! thanks I needed more hoops to jump through!!!!!!!!!!!charley
I hate the idea of shooting with a lower resolution. I want the best quality original picture I can get, in case I want it for something later. I hit two keys and make a copy to resize. It takes two seconds.
thanks Steve!!give me more hoops. I have tried all I can get is a very small pix to load ,its just not worth my time. I have better things to do. this pixs thing makes me think of dial-up back in the 90s you couldn't send or get pixs without making them smaller!!!!!!!!!!!! charley
