A while ago I started a 'New Topic' which included a photo of the subject I was trying to draw as well the finished drawing. The first response to the post was WHY is the photo so large. I tried to reduce the photo size and then realized I don't have a clue how to do that, so I deleted the Topic. Now I'm asking for some advice how to decrease the size of a .jpg photo.

Thanks

Hi Don,

I always use IrfanVeiw. It is a top notch free image viewer/editor. http://www.irfanview.com/

Don is right.  IrfanView is the best picture viewer I have seen, and it is free.  It also supports batch resizing/editing of any number of pictures in a folder.  After editing a bunch of pictures (which includes cropping, so they are all of different sizes), I can select them all, specify the resulting size and place all the new images in another folder (the Batch pop-up will give you an idea).

Hi Don,

for basic/simple manipulation, you could use Window's built-in Paint programme.

I hope this helps.

I usually resize mine to 1200px wide w keep aspect ration engaged. The locomotive shop one I posted was 1400 as it looked better a bit bigger.

The kilobyte size determines its eligibility for posting. The pixel size determines the screen size. If the picture width, or hight, in pixels, exceeds the screen width, or hight, available for the picture, then the picture will not fit. For example, my screen width is 1680 pixels, your first picture fits but the second doesn't - not all the 1680 pixels are available for the picture.

When an image in this Forum is too large to view normally, I'll right-click on the thumbnail and choose to open the link in a new tab. Now the picture is by itself and possibly zoomed to extents. I can go to actual size or zoom larger and pan around the picture with the mouse if I want. I can't do that while in the Forum; I have to find a scrollbar.

Thanks everybody for your input. When posting a photo what is maximum KB size allowed. I think my age is catching to me quickly.

4096KB per file and a grand total of 8192KB for the 6 file max.

Thanks John.

 That answers my question. I'll delete the two photos from my previous post.
