    How do I shrink an image to 80x80 pixels if I don't have a program like Graphic Workshop? I have a PC w/ all the "standard" Microsoft programs on it. Thanks, Jerry.

    Just post the picture here or if it is bigger than 640x640 pixels e-mail it to me at jordan@flymeridian.com and I will do it for you.

    I have the Microsoft Paint program here on this computer which I believe is pretty much standard. Click on the words IMAGE at the top of the paint program, the click on STRETCH/SKEW. That brings up a box where you enter the percentage amount that you wish to shrink the image in either direction. If you originally set up the page for an 80x80 picture, simply keep shrinking the picture a few times until it fits in the 80x80 box. (But I have had a problem with some pixel "dropouts" whenever I shrink some photos down. The PAINT program is not very fancy compared to Adobe Photoshop which we use to have on another computer.) Hope this might help.

    GIMP is shareware which does a good job of this - its a bit arcane to use, but its a good tool.

    With Paint I have found that the quality of "shrink" quality of pics is improved if you save them as a BMP first, then shrink and convert them back to JPG

    How come the post numbers are the same in this thread, they don't go up? sorry if this question has been asked 1000 times, but I don't know.

    Thanks

    The post number under the persons profile is his/her total post count, not the number of their post in this thread.
