Image resizing issues
« on: October 23, 2009, 06:55:44 pm »
Okay, I only have MS paint on my computer, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any freeware/websites/helpful individuals who resize images (namely this one) to 100x100 pixels?

How do you guys do it? Whenever I use pain it always bums the image over, and right now I can't just scan the picture over and over untill I have the picture small enough to be used as an avatar, which is what I usually do.

I always use Photoshop, and I can neither confirm nor deny its "free" availability :-P

It's possible to resize an image using Paint, but it's horrible at it.  Are you trying to upload an avatar here?  If so, just upload it, the forum will resize it accordingly.  And if it doesn't, let me know, because that means there's a problem (and since no one ever tells me about these things, there could be a bug for months without me knowing about it).

That's very mean of them. I'm worried about the efficiency of it all, and having some fearfully huge Varface licking everyone's screen. D=

I guarantee that an avatar uploaded to this forum will never exceed the software-defined size of 125x125px :-)

Well after trying, it seems to have vanished forever. This is starting to belong in site specific stuff. x.x;.

So, does no one know of any websites or freeware programs that don't suck at image resizing? >.<;

Edit:: On the advice of a friend, I use MS Word (insert image, then click a corner and hold shift, copy+paste to paint, save) with some impressive results.

Awesomesauce =3. Nice tip for anyone who might want it, too.

Give IrfanView or ACDSee a try, they might do what you need.
