I have several pics I made with my 2.1 MP digital and they're all 400+ KB!!! How do I make them take up less space without looking like crap?

Assume that I'm just completely photo editing illiterate... because I am.

crop and resize

I use paint shop pro... has advanced features but even a dolt like me can achieve the basics

Easy trick.


Right click on pic and select send to -> email recipiant.


It will prompt you to make your picture smaller.

Say ok,


When the email pops up right click and save picture back to your drive (rename it so you do not overwrite the origional)

It will make it between 25-75k at 640x480


Hope that helps.

It works great. Just hunt it up and load it on the 'puter.

Google has a cool little free program called Picasa. It catalogs your photos and will let you export pictures at same or different sizes.

Thats why they pay me the big bucks....

oh EDIT to add:


You can select all the pics and do the same thing all at once. Just save them all in a new folder.

Irfanview is very easy to use.

Is there a program that will let you resize many photos at the same time? I have been individually resizing them, and that is a time consuming process...
