Instructional Animation for how to resize images.


a calculator will cum in handy

I find it best to take the best quality pix n use th@ pix as a master copy n any alterations save with a slightly different file name


I normally put an "a" @ the end of the name
eg: image000069.jpg = mastercopy
image000069a.jpg = altered 1st time
image000069b.jpg = altered 2nd time etc


Re: altering pic size "2048x1638" calculator cums in handy here.
width = 2048
desired width = 800
800 divided by 2048 =0.390625 multiplied by 100 (=%) = 39.0625%

Therefor: the amount of reduced horizontal n vertical % = 39%
so a pic of 2048 pixels wide reduced to a vertical n Horizontal of 39% = a pic of 799 pixels wide to get the size of photo when loaded into MSPaint click on IMAGE and then Clik ATTRIBUTES clik PIXELS
this will be the size of photo loaded into MSPaint
