I am running xp home on my computer. I was trying to up-load one of my photo's to the Weather Channel site. The site states that the photo must be a JPG file and a max of 400k. My photo is a JPEG and it is 451kb. I tried to zip it and it didn't get under the 400k. How can I re-size it to get it under 400k.
Thank you for any help.

Hey, dtop -

Try the free Irfanview program.

It will do what you want, and a whole lot more.

Before I would settle for Shareware, I would check out our Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps topic.

All programs in this list are FREE, recommended by our members, and free of Spyware.

If you have photoshop, there is an "Save for the web" option that will let you choose the some options that will greatly effect the size your image will be :thumbsup:

hi there, on most of the photoviewing and editing software you have a ''resizing'' option.

I use ACDSee Pro Photo Manager. In the lest pane with icons, there is one that permits u to resize ( an icon with a flower in it) and you can choose your size that you would like.

Adobe Image Ready also has a resize option, you go into Image, then image size and you can choose the size u want to reduce it to.

You can also use Microsoft Office Picture manager, just click on edit picture in the top middle of the icon panel, and another opens up on the right hand side, here u can edit colours etc, and you also have the option of resizing.

Hope that helps you.

cheers

:thumbsup:

Oh yes and remember, when you resize it DO NOT FORGET to SAVE IT under a NEW NAME!!!!!

example: if the piture is named picture, save it under the name picture1. or any new name u want to give it. If you dont it will overwrite the old one, this could deteriorate the picture quality when you zoom or want to edit the photo.
