download the gimp link

you will need to download both files
GTK+ 2 for Windows (version 2.6.8)
and The Gimp for Windows (version 2.2.8)


install the GTK first, and then install The Gimp


once they are installed open The Gimp, go to file and then open. Open the picture you want to resize. Once it opens the new window. There is a image tab, click image the drop down window will be displayed. Select scale image I guess the easiest for everyone to see would be 800X600. So for width change to 800, height change to 600. once you have it set to the desired size, click scale at the bottom righ hand corner. Now click file, then save as. Save the file as a new name. Then upload the image and post.

if you use photobucket as your image host, you can resize the pictures from there.

I agree that Irfanview is much easier for simple tasks such as resizing. For photo editing, The Gimp is quite a powerful tool. In between Irfanview and The Gimp, I recomment Paint.net as a fairly easy to use editor that goes beyond the tools of Irfanview.

Wow, that actually works pretty good. You select the pic(s), right click and select the size you want...It keeps the aspect ratio too. Saves them in the same folder with a number added.

I will still use Photoshop for important stuff, but I may just start using this.

Oh, it is for Win XP.

I use Photoshop for harder stuff. Never used Gimp, might check it out, but I rarely use all the functionality of Photoshop so I may have all I need.

How about just Microsoft Paint?

1. Open the image in Paint
2. Go to "Image", then the second one down, "Stretch/Skew" (or you can just hit Ctrl+W)
3. Put the same number in the Horizontal blank as the Vertical blank (less than 100, to denote that you are resizing to x percent of the original). Forget skewing it unless you want it skewed.
4. Repeat as necessary.

Simple and requires no downloading.

^^^ Yes! For images off my digie cam, which come it really big, 32% works great.

a 600x400 image is ideal for web page viewing... its big enough to see the picture, but still small enough its fast loading.

My digital camera came with ACDSee. Pretty easy with that program.

So easy I didn't know you could do it with MSPaint. Or Photobucket, who I use to host pics.
