birthday party pictures

November 11, 2007 at 3:07 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 9 Comments

I’ve just spent the past hour trying to figure out how to make the pictures on the CD of Emma Kelly’s birthday party smaller so I can post them. I can’t do it. I need somebody to come help me. I tried on MySpace, too, and the files are all too large. I don’t know what else to do. I’ll try to figure something out. I’m sorry…

  1. This may or may not work for you, but one way that works for me is to right-click on the relevant picture, choose “edit” (which causes a paintbrush program to open with the picture), select “Image” from the toolbar, and then “Resize/Skew”. In the “Resize” section, you can then reduce the image by changing the “100%” entries (for “horizontal” and “vertical”) to “50” or “25” or anything less than “100” to reduce the size. Then, you can save the newly-resized image (under “File”, then “Save as”). This seems like an approach that would work pretty universally on any computer. It may sound a little complicated, but it’s not. Anyway, good luck with the pictures. I’m anxious to see them. My daughter will turn one next month, and I have enjoyed following Emma Kelly’s year through your diary since she and my little girl are so close in age.

  2. Try

    When you get ready to upload them there should be a button that says options and you can change the resolution size. Took me forever to figure it our but I finally did. Can’t wait to see the pictures of that cutie pie! Don’t you just want to eat her up!

  3. Hey Kellie ~ Go to and upload your photos there. After you login on the right hand side of the screen there is an option that says upload. Right above that it says max image size (options) Click on the options and you can choose a smaller size. Then upload the pictures. Hope that works.

  4. I was also going to suggest photo bucket. I use that often 🙂

  5. I use a free program called Easy Thumbnails:

    It changes your images into good quality thumbnails. You choose the size you want, and you can view a preview before you actually create the thumbnail.

  6. Kellie–

    I’m so sorry that you are having trouble…
    Photobucket is what I use to resize pics so I can post them…

    I would be happy to resize them for you…just email me the file numbers real quick!

  7. Hey Kellie~
    I’m not sure if you have a Mac or a PC, but on my Dell laptop, I open my pictures in Microsoft Office Picture Manager, then click “edit pictures” at the top of the page, a screen pops up on the right hand side and in it I click “compress pictures” at the very bottom. Then I click the bubble for “web pages” and click ok. Then you just have to save the pic as something else so it won’t resize your original and now the size is appropriate for most things on the web, especially myspace. If you don’t have Microsoft, then just disregard this comment! 😉

  8. It’s very easy and also easy to share.

  9. Kellie,
    If you go to and download Irfanview that will help you resize your pictures plus you can do other cool stuff with it, too.
