As I'm sure you've all figured out....I'm Brand New to this. I don't even know what forum that I need to ask this question in (is that pathetic or what)??
I'm attempting to use Irfanview to resize some photos. I've read their help topics and still don't understand! Can someone please help me. I have a photo that is 1156 pixels in width and 1147 pixels in length, 72 DPI, Bit Depth 24, I'm using Windows 7. For the life of me I cannot figure out how to make this a 5x7 photo using this program. Every place I've looked on the net gives a different set of instructions, after trying them, my photo is still not right.
Any help would be greatly appreciated~If only to tell me where this should really be posted. Sorry, but I am truly a computer moron!!!

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Take a look here: http://www.somewhere-in-time.net/tutorial/irfanview/

Note in step four you can change the parameters from pixels to centimeters or inches. This is where you would get your 5 by 7 setting. I hope this is what you were looking for?

If not reply here, and we have many members who are much more proficient with Irfanview than I am. Who should be able to guide you through what you need to do.
