    Cool How do I resize my photo files without Photoshop?

    I have some nice new Orchid photos but I can't seem to get them 700 x 800 or whatever they have to be to post.
    Any suggestions?

    Suzcc,You should be able to use the software that came with your camera.I have set up a folder RVO to transfer the pic's to after they have been reduced in size.What type of camera do you have? There should be a post about posting Photo's.There is a video on the first page of this forum to the far left side in small print,about posting pic's.I hope this helps.Rich

    The software Bruce refers to works GREAT. So simple, just a click.

    If you are using Windows XP, download Image resizer (right menu, 5th from below) from page: Microsoft Power-Toys for Windows XP and install it.

    Now you can resize any photo (or photos) on your computer with one right and one left click.
    1. Select your photo or photos you would like to resize
    2. Right click, choose resize pictures from menu
    3. Choose wanted size and click ok.
    And thats it!

    Best regards, Mateja

    If you have MS Windows XP on your computer, you can right click on your photo and choose edit...MS Picture Manager will open and there is a resize option there, that is a breeze to use.
