    I know this has been covered before but cannot for the life of me find it. I am using Infranview and need to reduce the file size of photos. I go to resize reduce the pixels size but the file size still remains the same ie. 313kb they are JPG images what is stupid doing wrong.:Blush:

    :Smile: Hi Sweet Chariot. The easiest way is to use the PAINT program.

    It usually goes like this:-
    Click Start
    All programs
    Accessories
    Paint.

    In the program Paint, click File at the top left corner.
    Open - Choose the photo you want to edit.
    Once the photo is loaded:-

    Click Image, Stretch/Scew
    Change the Horizontal % and Vertical % to a suitable size.
    If it is TOO small or still too big? Click Edit and Redo.
    Repeat until you are happy with the size you want.
    Then File, Save as (make a new name for the photo and make sure it is JPEG)

    Job done. :Wink:

    Thanks for the suggestions for some reason dont have Paint and could not get the other one to work. Found another bit of Software Pixresizer works but how do you get a large photo not a thumb size.:cry:

    The simplest by far is to goggle "power toys for windows"

    down the list you will see photo re sizer, click to down load ( a very small file) then when you right click any photo in your picture folder you will see in the drop down box the opportunity to re size, to any size you like by using the custom option you can then select to keep the original and make a small copy or re size the original
    Its so simple even I can use it :Rofl1:
