Resizing pics
« on: August 10, 2018, 10:11:20 am »
I'd like to post some pics of my new bike on the Club Kawasaki forum but they have a size limit of 1.95B and my pics always come out at over 3MB. the format is JPEG and the pics are 4000 x 3000 pixels. Anyone know of a simple (and I mean simple) way of reducing them in size please?
TIA

Depends which photo editor you're using but most have a resizing option in one of the pull down menus.  :beers:
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

I had prob with my  SLR pics on here.  There is a free optimising program that will reduce them online as you store them on your computer. I think scotsoft put me on to it, if I recall.

Me being me, I can't recall the name of it.  :-[

I'm sure more computer savvy members will be along soon!

If you could say what Operating System you have and what photo editor I am sure someone would be able to guide you.

Thanks, Chaps.
I've sussed it. Opened the pics with 'Paint' and resized them by pixels rather than % and job's a good 'un.

Yeps that's what I use, even though I have other photo editor software available.
