A simple way to reduce the size of photos if you don't have a photo software is to select the photos you want to post and right click on them and select send to e-mail recipient windows will offer to reduce the size, select the size you want, and they are then attached to the e-mail.
 
you don't have to send the e-mail.
 
then once there are attached, just click on save attachments to disk.. easy... :-))
 
it does not matter which windows system one has, this works on all windows systems

The file will be in your Download File, you need to run the EXE file..
Or just download it again but say Run rather than save.

Hi Long Build,
 As you can see I have managed at last, is there any way I can get rid of their Watermark without paying for the download?.
Thanks for your help.

I use Light Image Resizer a free download available here


http://www.obviousidea.com/windows-software/light-image-resizer/


It's extremely easy to use, and allows you to choose a size to suit your needs. I've been using it for a number of years now with very good results. It really is very simple, no expertise needed.

Did you download it from the link I put up ?, as that is free with no watermark .. The site it is showing on your picture is a different site..

Agree with Peter, Light Image Resizer is very good and offers various options if you need them For example I have set up the various file sizes needed to post photos of different parts of the Model Boats Website.

If Individual they are normally saved in the same file, If multiple pictures then they are saved in the file you tell it to.
Individual files are saved with a new file name normally like bigada 460*800

Just tested..
The picture will save generally to the default drive, in my case " C "  but you can alter that before you save the adjustment.

Hi Guys

You must be tired of this but ...

I am mainly using iPhone for mayhem. I have just downloaded simple resize app and yes I changed the size of the photo. However I have no idea of any photos file size either via the app or in the iPhones album.

If I need another app then it needs to be free. I can afford the price but it is a works iPhone and them recovering costs will mean reams of paperwork, trees will probably fall for the. 69p.

If you have Paint on your pc, then resizing your photos is dead easy. Locate the image you wish to resize on your pc, right click on it and then left click on 'Open with...' scroll down the list it will bring up and select Paint.


Once the image is open in Paint, look up at the top left of the window and select 'Resize'...left click on that, and then choose how much you wish to resize the image (I normally go for 50%) Left click on your chosen size, select 'save as', and Paint will save the resized image for you, normally in Downloads or in Pictures on your pc.


Once you've done that, locate the image on your pc and just make sure that the image is less than 300kb and it will be fine to upload to Mayhem. (just right click on 'Properties' and it will display the image size for you) If it's still too big, then reopen in in Paint and resize it a bit more, you'll soon get the hang of it.
