Still Struggling...

Post by High Priestess » 05 Sep 2017 07:12

I am HOPELESS at getting an image resized.

I want to show my ugly mug here - I have a good recent pic of myself and the cat. Can someone resize it for me please?

What server are we using these days to share aside from iCloud? :blush:

all servers are good except photobucket unless you pay for it
i use paint to resize my pics
just open your pic hit Customize the size
tick pixel there you should see the actual size of your pic
lower it and save
(if you want to keep your pic in the size you have
then you need to save the pic either in another name or location)

Thanks, Vim,

By the way, I looked at Photobucket today for the first time in years and I too see that they seem to be charging monies :angry:

I won't pay a penny. There's another company out there who appear to steal pics from other people and slap their name all over the images (images of ships/aircraft and such, mostly), without the uploaders' permissions or without crediting them. For legal reasons I won't say who they are but my partner pointed this out and takes great pride in editing them back to their original format :D

I can resize it for you this weekend, High Priestess.

I use Obvious Idea's free version of their Image Resizer software, it never failed me. :wink:

For resizing I use the program IrfanView: http://www.irfanview.com/
Oops, I did it again... Image
