I am trying to upload photos to my website, but they are too large- not size-wise, but file-wise. I've been told that they have too many pixles.

How do I save them to a smaller size so that they will upload?

What format are you saving them in? If they are bitmaps, save them as jpgs. If they are gifs' try jpgs. TIFF's, try jpgs. PNG's, try jpgs. In other words, for every day, run of the mill graphics, use jpgs. If they are already jpgs, try trimming them down. Liz

Get a image viewing program that lets you specify the image dimensions when saving the picture. I've used IrfanView, which is a free program that you can use to resize, crop and view images of most types. Just go to Image->Resize/Resample and enter the number of pixels you want for the height or width and then save the resulting image.

Haha that is a great program. And MSPAINT can easily do the same.

For MSPAINT all you need to do is open your image and then click "IMAGE" then "STRETCH/SKEW" on the first section it says "Stretch" all you need to do is drop the 100% to something like 80% more or less depending on the size you are trying to reach. And when you're done just click "Save As" select jpg type the name and pow! However, MSPAINT doesn't allow you to select the save quality, so it's actually pretty inferior to other programs.


For your program it's pretty similar. You select "IMAGE" then you select "Resize/resample" and choose your dimensions.

I use IfranView for the batch photo processing. It is... *smiles and puts 2 thumbs up* "VERY NICE"

irfanview, excellent and free program - have used it for years.
shift-s to sharpen
ctrl-r to resize
ctrl-s to save
etc.

If interested for the Apple computers, there is this article that may be of help: Macworld: Mac Gems: Easy resizing
GC and Sizerox, The Simple Way To Resize, Rename, Crop, Rotate And Watermark Your Images. Alters TIFF/JPEG/PNG/PSD photos using drag & drop. are two that I've used.
