Resize Pictures Using Picnik
This lesson explains how to use the website "picnik.com" to resize a photograph. You can also use this website to do other types of editing and to convert file types (from a tiff to a jpg for example). Best of all you don’t even need to create an account in order to use this website!
Go to http://www.picnik.com
Click on the "Get Started now!" button
Click on "Upload a photo"
Browse to find the photo you want to edit, Click to select it (1), then click "Open" (2)
Hint: on a PC you can click the icon on the upper right (3) to change from list view (showing file names) to thumnails view – this will make it easier to choose the correct photo.
You’ll see the gears turning as the photo is uploaded. After you see the photo you can edit it. To resize, click the "Resize" button.
Leave the "Keep Proportions" box checks (1) and then enter a new width (2) or height (3) for your picture. You only need to enter one dimension – the other will be automatically scaled. Click "OK" (4) when you are satisfied.
Click on the "Save & Share" tab (1)
Rename your photos (here I’ve added the word "smaller" (2). This will ensure you do not over-write the original photo.
Then click the "Save Photo" button (3)
Browse to where you want to save the new picture on your computer, then click "Save"
Congratulations! You have resized and saved your photo!
