Okay, we all know the size rule of photos. No larger than 1000 in any dimension. It has been a long time since I fiddled with photos, and camera/phones these days take huge photos. So in resizing some photos I took of a build I recently did I noticed a decrease in quality. I am not using anything fancy. I have tried various photos apps in my phone, various microsoft apps, etc. All decrease the photo quality. Does it matter what software you use to resize images? I tried also the built-in features in Flickr and I saw the same results. I have used GIMP in the past, but not recently. I did not notice such decrease in quality in GIMP. Should I download GIMP again? Is it necessary to use some high-powered, or at least with more power, software to down-size images so as to not lose quality? Took quite some time and effort to get good quality phots, I would hate to lose some quality.
How to resize pictures using MS Paint For those who are to lazy to download fancy software! I know that we already have a thread on how to resize pictures using MS paint, but this is in English and the last one was posted some 2 years ago. Also this one has added pirate sets. Anyway on with the tutorial! Despite being pretty primitive compared to say photoshop or over fancy-dancy programmes, MSpaint is readily available on all Windows computers, so you don't have to spend a lot of money on other programmes. Also it is very simple to use so those (like me) who are technologically impaired can use it. Click on Start, all programmes, accessories and then paint Proceed to file and then open and your horrifically large image will appear. After that, click on image and then attributes. This box should open: This is how large your image is at the moment, shown in width and height. This is important as later on you will have to decide how small you want your image to be. Now you know how huge your image is click press OK and again press image, stretch/skew This box will open: Enter in "20" and "20" (Or whatever percentage you want) and the image will shrink to 20 percent of it's original size. (Mine was originally 2560 by 1923 but I shrunk it down to 20% of its original size to 512 by 384) Click OK once you have entered in the percentages. The image will now look like this: (Yes it isn't one of my best photos, but I didn't have any that weren't resized already ) And their you have it! The image has been resized and is ready to be uploaded to an image hosting site and posted on to Eurobricks for all to admire! If any of you have a question just ask and I will attempt to answer it. Also please point out any horrible mistakes I have made.
