Hey everyone,
If anyone out there left without a platter or a serving spoon, Angela and I are guarding them with our life until you claim them.  So if you left them behind, let us know.  Also, if anyone can let me know how to reduce the size of my digital pictures, I can post them.  And Angela wants to remind everyone of the candle party here  on Sat Nov. 5 from 12 to 3.  Open house style.

Save you pictures from JPG format to BMP using MS paint.  Use the Image/stretch/skew functio and shrink the picture down.  Then file save as back to JPG.  And you are done.  Easy as pie.

I still think it is much easier to install the Microsoft Picture resizing tool and right click on the picture file (*.jpg) and select resize (small, medium or large) and then it is done.  No need to save as bmp or other hoops to jump through.

install the image Resizer tool.

Yes but doesn't this tool overwrite the original file.  You don't want to do that because you end up shrinking your original permanently.  Later on if you want to print some nice 5x7's or 8x10 or some cropping you no longer have a high quality picture to work with.

Actually it makes a copy unless you check the box to NOT make a copy.  It lables the newly sized files as medium***.jpg etc.   It is nice because you can do a resize on an entire folder of pictures and then sort on the name to copy all of the smaller pictures to a different folder.  It is free and functions from the context menu with a right click on the file/folder you want to work on.  Great for its simplicity :)

The powertool resizer worked great!  Thanks Rick.

Try this free program from google if you need a picture indexer (does some other cool stuff too) for your PC.
