Resizing PicturesPosted by just-a-surveyor on April 18, 2019 at 5:07 pm
I have 4 pictures that I need to resize down to 300kb or smaller for a Flood Cert and I cannot remember how to do it. I saw it on the form as I was trying to insert a pic that they need to be 300kb or less but now I don’t see it
Would any of you brainiacs be willing to throw me a clue.

I always use Windows Snipping Tool. Just did a Capture (saved as a PNG) of my whole screen, and its under 100KB.
It also automatically saves in your clipboard when you use it, so just paste it into your document.

I use Irfanview to resize the pictures.

I usally right click on the photo in windows explorer and on the pop up menu click “edit” it will then open in paint, click “resize” with the “percentage” radio button clicked and enter a new percentage like 30% or so and hit save or saveas. It’s pretty quick.

I googled it and found an online resizer.

I AM FIT TO BE TIED RIGHT NOW. I have never had so much damned trouble from a simple job of inserting pictures in an Elev. Cert. and have been working on this for 4 bloody hours with no joy. I have tried every trick I know and am about ready to go postal on something.
Is there anyone I can send a Elev. Cert. to with 4 pictures and you insert the pictures for me as I am at my wits freaking end with this BS?
EDIT: I had to use my wife’s computer but I finally got it.

Google “Image Resizer for Windows”. It’s a simple app that embeds in Windows. Once installed it’s an option when you right click on the image file. Super simple and very effective. You get 4 preset size options and a custom option if needed then you can also decide if you want to resize the original or make a resized copy. I use it all the time for my kids sports pictures. I take super high resolution pictures for my personal use but then weed through them to posts a couple dozen on their team page. You can resize them one at a time or in batches. Good luck!

Yep that’s the one I posted the link to on the previous page. Good bit of kit

Me too. Been using it for more than 10 years. You can not beat a free program that does BATCH operations. You can resize, and rename any number of files you want. I use it several time a week on stuff.
