Resizing pictures.

Postby v w » Sun Oct 19, 2014 2:17 pm

Windows 7 doesn't come with a resize feature on the right click. There are a lot of resize programs available which didn't help me any. Has anyone had experience with resizing pictures with windows 7? Vern

I have Windows 7 and use a free program called Irfanview.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Thanks John. I downloaded Infranview and the picture still wouldn't upload. I now think I didn't reduce it enough. Anyway I found that windows 7 does have a way of resizing pictures using Paint which is part of 7. A download from microsoft called silver something may be necessary but this computer being near the end of 7 had it. I tried it and it works so I may uninstall Infranview. Again, Thanks. Vern

If I am doing just a couple pics, I use Paint.

I use Windows Live Photo Gallery - to catalog all 360,000 digital images I have. The resize feature is a right click and the program is very easy to use - even the more advanced histogram changes. Best parts it's free as a Windows Live application.

Here is a before and after example.

Before Pixel Size 3624 x 2448 @ 2.97MB - Taken w/iPhone 5
After Using 1280 as the max size - 382KB. the resize keeps the correct aspect ratio based on the maximum size requested.

Occasionally the color density requires that I use a maximum pixel size of 1024 - but this rarely occurs.

Bigdog helped me download a REALLY quick and easy resize program, but he will have to explain...I don't remember what it was. I think it takes 2 clicks and it's reduced (with several size options).
