Tutorial ~~ How to make a photo smaller !!!

I have had some ladies ask me how do I make my photo's smaller.Its EASY ladies, but I understand when you don't know how of course its not easy to you.
Believe me I was there too,I know the feeling......

First of all your going to download a free program called
Then after you have downloaded the program, you find the image you want to reduce in size,right click on the image and go to( Open with

#1Go to( Resize) its on the right

#2 then click on (BY Percentage), at this point I do 50%,you keep reducing until its the size you wish, you can do an odd number like 80% you don't have to use the 50% its just a suggestion.

#3 go to (File)

#4 go to (Save As) At this point you save your image in the folder you wish,if you don't know about folders save it to your desktop , that's where you will find your image after you have saved it.
*** Important*** when you save your image write the word ((SMALL)) after what ever you call your picture because if you don't it will not save the original image ,**example (( Diane's Eggs Small))

#5 the size after reduction should be anywhere from 150-250KB, not any larger than that for email purposes.

That's it honestly its not any harder than that.If there is anything else you would like to know how to.... I will be only too glad to help if I can......

I hope you understand what I did here if not send me an email I will try and help .
Good Luck!

How do I make my thighs smaller?

Sharon said...

I agree with both these ladies
I was wondering how to make a photo smaller and I wish you had a program that you just push button and make thighs,tummy and behing smaller.

Great tips! I use a free program called Irfanview. It is an editing program so it has a lot more stuff. Your program sounds a lot easier for the beginner. Tina
