    Question Resize Photo Problem

    So how the heck do you get them to a size that'll allow you to post?

    1. Get yourself a copy of IrfanView. It's free and you can get it at www.irfanview.com.

    2. Fire up Irfanview and open your image.


    3. Select Image>Resize & Resample


    4. Select 72dpi and a size of about 300dpi across or so. Be sure to leave the little "preserve aspect ratio" box checked so your image doesn't get distorted.


    5. Save your photo using File>Save As. This will keep you from changing your original file and will give you a nice one to put up on the web.

    6. When you post your message, use the Attach File item, but don't preview your message! vBulletin, our forum software, will drop your attachment if you do.

    Want to practice? Use this thread to do that. We'll keep it stickied so it's always here.
    Well, I followed the great directions but when the posted photo is enlarged it blows apart the pixs and looks distorted. Wondering what I'm doing wrong and/or not doing? Can anyone make suggestions? Thanks!

    It might be the resolution of the picture you're starting with. I think the instructions you've quoted assume that you have a high resolution picture, say one that is 1 or 2Mb big. If the picture is only 10-15Kb big, then it might be that the picture is getting "expanded" too much.

    Notice in Step 4, it says "Current Size is 1600 x 1200 pixels" and the "New Size is 300 x 225 pixels". What does your say?

    Well..first...welcome to the forum. You mention "the posted photo" as it's your first post, I didn't see the first attempt. By any chance did you-
    6. When you post your message, use the Attach File item, but don't preview your message! vBulletin, our forum software, will drop your attachment if you do.
    Don't be afraid to try a post, if you don't like it or it doesn't work out, you can delete it. It's easier and the quality is better if you are trying to make a large picture small-rather than the other way around. Good luck, Gary

    Let's see... the disk size is 678.31KB and the Memory size is 5.49MB 180 DPI.

    When I followed the instructions it was sized to 300x225 at 72DPI.

    The photo that I was trying to post were for a classified add. I'll try to post another photo
