Reduce The Size Of A Photo

Tue Mar 22, 2005 11:10 pm

Hi, this is the first time for me in this forum, so please forgive me if this is like A vs. B in Civil Aviation.

I haven't uploaded any photos to the data base, but now I have taken some cabin shots of Icelandair's economy class, of which there are no photos in the data base. I would therefore like to upload them. They are of good quality, but over 1 MB in size. Is it possible for me to reduce the size. I don't have any photo software (only standard Win. XP home ed.). I did a search regarding this topic, but nothing came up.

Thankful for every suggestion.

You will need photo software.

Try downloading a trial version of Paint Shop Pro and see how you get on with that.

Adobe link for a tryout of Photoshop CS

I recommend you to get used to one in particular, Photoshop, Paint Shop...etc because in the beginning they're a bit complicated to use.

Good luck

Micke,

I have a spare copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 2 you could have.

If you would like it, drop me an e-mail and I'll send it to you.

It can be done in Microsoft Paint (Image/Stretch (or Ctrl+W)), or Microsoft also do an image resizer as part of their PowerToys for XP. That's a really neat resizer.

I'm not sure what the overall effect on image quality is versus a 'professional' program.

EDIT - just realised you may mean file size rather than image size!!!
