How to resize photos for forum posting.
« on: 12 October, 2017, 15:34:31 »
I have inserted my memory card in my windows computer and downloaded the pictures. My pictures are too big to post. Someone suggested Paint Shop which I have found 'Open with Paint Shop' which I did, went to resize. It offers Pixels or other, tried both still no joy. What am I doing wrong please.

Right click on the photo then open with "Paint" , click on resize, click on "pixels" the go to box marked "horizontal" and insert a lower figure. Or click "percentage" and insert a lower figure.

Scroll down to Step 4, there is an option to specify filesize.
