One of the most common questions we receive from our members is, “My pictures on my website are huge. How do I resize them?” We do have instructions in the help pages for how to resize images using the Paint program which is included with Windows on every PC. However, we are experimenting with an even easier way to resize images and we’d like your feedback. Go to:

http://pixoh.com

Here you can enter the URL of a graphic already on your site or you can click the “Browse” button and then select a graphic on your computer. Once you’ve selected the image you want to modify you have the ability to resize, crop, or rotate the image. You can also adjust qualities such as brightness and contrast.

Once you’re done modifying the graphic, click the “Save” button at the top of the page. If you’re modifying a photo, click the option to “Save as JPG” (not the high res). This will allow you to save the graphic to your computer. Be sure to save the modified graphic with a different filename than the original so you don’t overwrite the original. Then go into your webmaster page and use the “Upload Graphics and MIDIs” option to upload the new image into your account.

So, how do you like this tool? Would it be helpful if we integrated this tool into the Webmaster area in the same way we added the “Make Graphics Load Faster” page?

after only a brief exam of it, it looks simple and easy to use... I think it would be an asset as an option in webmaster tools.

I like it. I currently use PhotoStudio 2.0 from ArcSoft that lets you transform and re-sample and I don't have to use internet. I will probably use both if available. PIXOH has changed their address to snipshot.com Very Happy

Hello,

To be honest, I am not too crazy about websites that may open files on my computer and possibly put cookies or spyware on my computer. I have used paint to resize files for my website and it is very easy and safe. My digital camera takes large size pictures and I simply use the "stretch/skew" on Paint to set it at 25%, that makes it a 640x 480 or even smaller one if I want to take up less space like 40 kbs. Just a thought...

I do appreciate how Ourchurch is always thinking of ways to make things easier and helpful for us, a good witness Mr. Green

God Bless,

Dave
