Photo to e-mail Background Exact fit ??

  Noels 07:57 17 Feb 2003

I know how to get my own photos / pictures into Stationery OE6 for e-mail backgrounds but they nearly always seem to be too small in which case I get several pictures cover the screen or too big in which case some of the photo gets cropped.

Question does anyone know how to get an exect fit without lots of trial and error??

This freeware program will allow you to measure sizes of windows precisely.

Thanks for that I will give it a try.

The problem is that if I use a commercial background it automatically expands fo fit the page, whereas my own saved photos / pictures don't. They are usable but it would be nice to get an exact fit.

Thanks and regards Noels

click here I have found that the small free program on this site is definitely the easiest of all to size photo's. You can choose inches or centimetres, and then save by giving a different number to the photo, so that the original is untouched. eg if the photo is number P4321, save it back to the original folder as P4321Cropped, you will then have the original and the cropped photo in your folder. It is also the very best program that I have found for removing red eye. I use Jasc Paint shop Pro for normal editing but would not be without Ofoto.

Hi Andsome Thanks. I have no problem resizing photos but even when I measure the e-mail page size on the screen in inches" or cm, then resize the photo to that size, they don't exactly fit. I was hoping someone could tell my the size of an e-mail page in pixels or whatever.
Measuring the page size on the screen depends on the screen size ie 14" 15" 17" etc which is no help when trying to get an exact fit.

What do Web Page designers do?

Anyway thanks for your help

Thanks looks good ! Its going to take me some time to Read, Learn and Inwardly digest but will print instructions and give it a go. It looks just what I needed.

Thanks again Noel
