Title: Resizing Pictures
Post by: JourneyMan on November 14, 2006, 11:09:02 am
The big pictures is nice but it makes it difficult to fully enjoy the thread.

I use Irfanview to resize.

640 x 480 pixels works fine for the forum.

Free and easy to use.

Any other programs/methods to re-size?

Maybe make it sticky Admin?

Agreed...I find 600pixels perfect....use the software I got
with the camera to resize

I can recommend FastStone: http://www.faststone.org/
Very nice picture viewer, but also (important!) batch operations for resizing, renaming, etc. Point it at a folder, give it the resize specs, name an output folder and Bob's yer uncle.

Also includes a fine screen capture utility.

Tell me more please, I just download the pics on my laptop and then straight to Smugmug. In Smugmug I choose small/meduim/large.

Why do we first need to resize? Or do I mis something?


I use Imagecave and Image-upload. The free options. (I'm a cheapskate) Pics must be 250k or less when uploading or it will be rejected.

The pics from the camera is all above 1.2MB

Maybe the camera can be set to take at a lower resolution? But then you won't be able to make photo quality prints, as I understand it.

Actually I'm just guessing. No buggerall about these type of things. :oops:

No wonder I always had problems with image shack / image cave I use photobucket no problems, but the old set up on photobucket automatically set it at a 1MB max which was handleable, the new one does not seem to.

Thanks Growweblaar!!!!!
I just downloaded the Photo Resizer - man, it's really easy to use and will save me tons of time!
Each time I do a ride report, I open 1 image at a time and resize it - what a b*ll ache!
Now it's SO quick and easy!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED>

Listen chaps - seems you all missed the bus!!!!

EASY PEAZY way to do resizing!!! .... select all pics and right click - select "send to" - "mail recipient"... Outlook or you mail proggie would prompt you whether you wanted to keep original size or make smaller?
Select "custom" and then either 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768 and voila (dat's french  :))

once the mail prggie has opened... select all the files/pics/attachments and copy into a seperate folder. Normally the pics would be under 100kb each.... or much less depending on original size... but all suitable for web publishing.

my 2,5c worth...  ;D

Where does my computer save the resized images to?

I use Opera for my mail and nothing happens. I select the pics and resize them, the progress bar is shown and is completed.

It should be in the e-mail itself, but I would suggest using irfanview's batch convert - works very well and you have more control over the settings.

That's what I reckoned but it's not.
Will go back to the Faststone product - it really is simple and has lots of options.

For those that don't have specialist software (and/or don't fancy freeware/shareware/pirated software), but only a Windows install, the following is the best you can do (which isn't half bad by the way) with standard Windows tools. If your picture is anything other than a JPG format (JPG and GIF is best for internet anyway) this method won't work to best effect, thus I include instructions on how to best convert them using standard tools as the first step.

1. To change your picture format from any other popular format (read BMP, GIF, PNG, TIFF) to JPG just right-click on the picture in Windows Explorer --> Open With --> Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. Then click on the Save icon at the bottom, select JPEG in the drop-down list and click on the Save button. This method will result in the best quality JPG picture (with standard tools) when converted from another format.

2. To resize just right-click on the (new JPEG version of) the picture in Windows Explorer --> Open With --> Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Then go to Edit Pictures --> Resize, and select the resolution you want. Please note that you can also do things like Crop, adjust Brightness and Contrast, and do Red Eye Removal in this program. This method will result in you keeping your original picture as is (which is often important) and you being able to post up better edited pictures.

3. Now, the final step (which is often overlooked) is good image compression. This is very important when posting on the web as a better compressed picture is smaller in storage size and thus loads faster. I've found the best standard tool for this to be Paint (yes Paint), although you don't want to use Paint as an image format convertor, as it doesn't retain the image quality too well when converting. So now you just right-click on the (new JPEG version of) the picture in Windows Explorer --> Open With --> Paint. Then simply click on File --> Save, and then close Paint. This method will result in you getting the best compression without losing and quality or clarity in your picture.

Happy converting/resizing your piccies!

You can also select the photo`s in you folder on your hdisk, holding <CTRL> down while you click on them
gives you the option to select more than one without it being in sequential order.
Right click, select the 'Sent to' option, then choose 'mail recipient'. This will open
up an 'new mail', windows will ask you if it should 'resize' or keep normal size. Choose
resize and a new mail folder will appear with the resized photo`s in them. Now choose the
'save attachments' option from the new mail box and save them on your desktop.
Delete the mail.Go to WD posting, choose 'attachments, browse to your desktop and
add.  Delete resized pics from desktop after posting. Sounds long but once you get the hang
of it it takes only seconds.

Check out the Image Re sizer power toy from M$

You simply right click and image, select re-size and then get a few options for size.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

SMF can also be set to not allow pictures that are deemed to large in dimensions and or file size, the admins might might want to look into it.
Title: Re: Resizing Pictures
Post by: Lourens ツ on February 23, 2008, 12:12:38 pm
Whatever software you use to resize the photo you must save the photo as .jpg file and usualy 60%-90% quality is perfect for internet use.

Post by: Dustdevil on November 01, 2008, 01:20:36 pm
Don't worry about the file type!!!! These days all pictures are made with digital cameras or mobile phones. THEY ALL SHOOT JPEG format :laughing4:.
Some can shoot RAW but this is the more professional cameras and you will need to set it on the RAW adjustment and you will then use special software to convert these RAW images into a usable format like jpeg for instance.

The Jpeg format is a way of compressing that allow the images to be a lot smaller files sizes but a full resolution image will still be to large for Internet use.

You will have to re size and by making the long side of your image +- 600pixels you will end up with roughly a jumbo size image on the screen.

Resolution should be 72dpi or in the case of most basic software programs just chose a MEDIUM quality setting. You can't see the difference in quality of a small image on a monitor in any case.

Canon have very nice soft ware called Zoombrowser EX (You get this when buying Canon cameras). You select your images that you want converted and then on the left top menu bar you will find the INTERNET tab. Once in here is is easy to follow the instructions and it can also calculate this size before you re size to see if the file size will be good.

This image is only 88k, but it appears very large on screen and the overall quality is still very good for viewing on screen. I made it 1000 long which will make the image fill most of the screen when using 1280X1024 resolution. The image was cropped to be a panoramic.

Post by: Eisbein on March 24, 2009, 10:20:45 am
800x600

Yip.

I mostly never go over 700 wide, but 800x600 should be fine for most.

I also use irfanview and then save the .jpg to 80% quality.
The pictures are still big enough to view 'lekker', but small enough in size to load quick.

Thanks Growweblaar, I find this very easy and users friendly. It gives you the option to keep you original 'large format photos' but do a easy batch re size and store in another folder for quick uploads. Was doing it the old one by one way in Microsoft office picture viewer before. I recommend Faststone!  :thumleft:

Easiest way to resize is to select all photos.

Then Right Click  --> say send to Mail recipient.

It asks you if you wish to resize. Say yes.

Then once the mail is open select all the phones again (click on the first until it is highlighted, hold shit down and click on the last image) Right click. Say copy. Go to any folder and say paste.

This may only work if you have office installed

If you are using the "Additional Options" to attached photos, they always go to the bottom of the e-mail below the message text.

If you want to have text, then photo, more text and another photo etc. you must use this photo icon. See below

Thanks Pote, ek sal hom try.

So by the way, is jy happy met jou 800?

Ek het een gevat vir 'n test ride en was nogal aangenaam verras met sy responsiveness. Die probleem wat hulle hier op die forum mee gedeel het met die vurke het ek ook ervaar, veral toe ek die remme getoets het, het die neus baie gesak, maar dis nie hierdie massive probleem dat die bike nou comdemn moet word nie. Ek dink dis 'n great bike, sommer "bakgat". Definitief my tweede keuse. (Lees my introduction)
Title: Re: Resizing Pictures
Post by: Pote on July 09, 2010, 10:51:23 am
ek stem die 800 is 'n lekker masjien en die neus kan nogals duik as mens hard rem, gebruik net die regte verhouding van voor en agter remme en dis fine, 1ste rat is nogals 'n bietjie sensitief maar na die 2de keer wat jy hom/haar ry kom dit ook reg.

Guys... and Gals... Microsoft has a photo reziser plug in that works (imho the only product of theirs that does!) just download it from MS site at the Power Toys link;
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx
Called ImageResizer.exe
Some other cool toys there as well btw.
Once you installed it you just right click on an image (either when open or on it's icon in explorer) and you can then select a size, it also does a batch of files inside a folder or as highlighted. Magic! :thumleft:

If you have a Samsung or other Android tablet this is how you do it:
First take the pics on your higher settings of the camera, you go to the camera, click the settings "cog" on your screen then click resolutions. You can play with these and when you crop the pics all will be at a low enough resolution for WD posting or quick downloading for friends. So thats the next step. Once you've taken the pic you go menu, more, then crop. You can crop to full size even and hey presto!!

Thanks Woestyn, eventually worked it out
Open pic in gallery. Click on 3 stripes top right corner, edit, resize, click 100% and click it down to 50%. Can then post at least 5 pics at a time..
Samsung galaxy tab 10.1

The old tecnofobic idiots way ....put the photos on Face Book that shrinks them automatically then take them from there and put them on the forum ...
My 5 cents worth...

Huge loss in quality though



Definately good enough for here though .....

Listen chaps - seems you all missed the bus!!!!

EASY PEAZY way to do resizing!!! .... select all pics and right click - select "send to" - "mail recipient"... Outlook or you mail proggie would prompt you whether you wanted to keep original size or make smaller?
Select "custom" and then either 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768 and voila (dat's french  :))

once the mail prggie has opened... select all the files/pics/attachments and copy into a seperate folder. Normally the pics would be under 100kb each.... or much less depending on original size... but all suitable for web publishing.

my 2,5c worth...  ;D



Thanx for your description above...it helped me on the right track to do resizing....
