Resizing a JPEG Image

  freaky 22:08 17 Jul 2007

I have a photo that I want to upload to a Forum, it's 3.27MB in size and JPEG. The photo is of a car bonnet air intake which cools a Turbocharger.

The forum has the facility for uploading, but the image of the photo is too large and needs to be resized.

Would appreciate how I can do this without detracting from the detail of the photo.

This is the one I use when resizing for things like avatars click here very easy to use.

I downloaded PIX resizer and was able to upload the photo OK.

As you say it's very easy to use, and leaves the original photo intact.

That's a very large .jpeg file...:-)

Hi Stuarti, yes it is large. After resizing it and clicking 'Properties' it was 88 KB ! And the photo is just as good.

I thought I'd just chip in. Within an XP picture folder, there's an option File/Resize Pictures. The original can be retained "as is" if required. For re-sizing for uploading/emailing etc, I've never seen the need for third party applications ?

FSViewer and FSResizer are also good programs and are free!

The link from antony17 sounds like spam; you don`t need to pay for a resizer.
