Default How to resize pics to make them suitable for TE

I would thank any sort of tip about how to resize my pictures to make them fit in TE parameters without losing too much size ( i usually shoot at more than 1 MG and the trouble comes up when , through Picasa (it is the post processing program i normally use because i am not much keen on those most sophisticated PProc. techniques as Photoshop), i adjust the picture to 200 Kb size and i sadly realize how reduced the picture turns out

Any help will be highly valuable for me .

Thanks in advance

Hello Luev! In Picassa, you can "export" the photo; there, you can choose both the size (either the original or resize it to 800px, for example) and the jpg compression. Anyway, there are number of free programs which do this job easily, you just have to google for "resize photos software".
I hope this has been of some help.
Take care,
Inés

Gracias por tu informacion Ines ! . La cosa es que aun a pesar de reducir por Picasa hasta 800 x 200 pix. y conseguir por los 200 Kb , la foto resulta ridiculamente reducida que ni siquiera se aprecian detalles originales . Seguire indagando y esperando consejos . Muchas gracias otra vez

Take a look at these free programs

www.irfanview.com
http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

they both have a lot of features but re-sizing is easy.

In case you have Microsoft Office Picture Manager, then you can choose Resize Option and there are options to select predefined length of 800 px.

I use The Gimp, in Linux, but windows version is quite simple to install:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=121075

It's not simple, but it's quite complete, I bet it's the better one for free. I know you said you want something simple, but there's no magic: the more simple, the more automatic, the less you can choose to do what you want...

In Gimp, I firstly reduce it to the 800 pixels limit. Then, when saving the file, while I choose the compression rate the window shows me how many Kb it will be.

Hi , this is what i use :
BDSizer is a free and useful tool which allows you to quickly downsize or upsize photos
and then save it using a maximum file size.
