http://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/ This works great.
Thanks for posting that link. I have been using this one for sometime and it's easy to use and can do groups of photos rather then one at a time like some I have used. I give it two+ thumbs UP!
By the way, this time I saved the link to my bookmarks for the next time someone asks.
Is it free? You can use windows paint that comes with windows.
Open photo with Paint by right clicking on photo then opening it with paint. On the top click resize a box should open, select pixels. You reduce the size entering a lower number in the horizontal box. If the number it opens with is over 1000 I put in 500. The vertical number will change when you enter a lower number horizontal box.
You may have to do this a few times depending on how big the photo is that you are trying to reduce. After you lower the size or pixel number hit ok. The picture should shrink then click on the drop down menu on the top left corner select save as then select jpeg and save it to a folder. It usually goes to the same folder the original photo was in or you can make a new folder. Before you save it name it so you know which one it is, I add the word small to the name. You can then check to see how big it is by putting your mouse over it to see if it is small enough to upload.
Peter, it is free and its from Microsoft so there is no threat of spyware. Once installed you simply right click on the photo or photos and choose "resize" in the menu. It gives you many choices and you can shrink or enlarge.
Right click on photo in your file manager
"send to" - "email recip"
pop up asks you what size.
email window opens
right click on photo in email.
No paint, no downloading programs.
Great but how many can you do at the same time? With the above program I can do all the photo in a down load from my camera at the same time. Then can ether save the new one or both the original and copy.
My paint program is not working and even when it was it never worked well to reduce size and when it did it was one at a time. But I am old school till my computer dies, XP!
I have also used this resizer for years. I have posted it several times, but for some reason people must be afraid of using it. It takes about one minute for the download, and is so simple... I once resized 152 photos at once and posted them to one single post in a thread about my speedster project. Try and do that one at a time ... After you highlight the pictures it takes three clicks to resize one or one thousand pictures. It takes less than 5 seconds to resize one or one thousand photos. Then each resized photo is displayed beside each original picture with the word small/medium/large/or custom in the resized photos name. It does not change the original. Its so simple, its even simple for us dinasaures.
