How to resize photos for posting and e-mailing

Postby Tom » Thu Aug 09, 2012 7:58 am

Think you don't have a photo editor? If you run Windows, you do!

The simple method is to open the picture in "Paint" which is under Programs->Accessories.

Use the "Resize" option and choose 640 W and 480 H and make sure "Pixels" (Not inches!) is seleceted. Hit enter. Save. Done.

640 x 480 is the e-mail "standard" and will be the same size as the below photo when moved.

Saves a lot of work on this end. Also makes the images small enough for you to upload with posts here on the BattleForum.
