Resizing Photographs on Vista

  User-911A2C1A-D945-4365-B010DD18A93D4FFB 15:24 21 Jul 2007

I am trying to resize my photos to a custom 60mm x 50mm but Vista wont let me do it. Has anyone got any ideas?

You can use Vista's Paint application to do this.

Load the image, then from the edit menu choose image size, then specify the size you need.

" but Vista wont let me do it. "

If you mean Vista is stopping you resize these pics try taking ownership of the pics first click here

Ooops forgot the rest of the post:

Taking ownership of the pics first download click here
,save to your desktop (easiest way to find the file).

Open the zip file,you will be given 2 choices

1 > to install the Takeownership context menu
2 > to remove the Takeownership context menu

Click option 1

And follow the prompts.

This will allow you to right click a file/folder and takeownership of that.

Once you use the Takeownership by right clicking the file/folder you will have the black Dos box flash across the screen.

You should be able to access the file/folder.
