Barry do you realize how you are putting those of us trying to lose weight through torture.
Your masterpieces look so tempting I`m really glad they are only on the screen and you are at the other side of the world.
Click start and go to Programmes
Click Open then your pictures should appear if not click Pictures
click the picture you want to downsize and click Open
On the top part which is stretch change 100% to 50% on horizontal and vertical then click OK
Click image again
repeat the change in the same 2 boxes to 50%
If you want you can repeat this process once more to make them even smaller - sometimes I do and sometimes I don't.
Click Save As
Type your name for the picture and click save
That's it!!! The downsized picture will be stored in your pictures. You will have the original size and the downsized one. I always know which has been downsized because I type 'reduced' in the picture name.
When you post them to TP it will work.
There are other ways to downsize. Photo gadget resize is a free download and on the downsizing thread, there are other options mentioned.
