Picture Sizes

By BorgInva ·
My digital camera takes pictures at a resolution of 3000 something. When displaying on my PC, different programs do different things. Windows Paintbrush and internet Explorer shows the picture at its large actual size. Windows Picture Viewer and Firefox show the picture at a viewable size.
I post these pics on my website and people can not see them correctly mainly because of using IE.
How can I save my pics, they are in JPG format, to a resolution of 800x600, etc?

Sorry, there is no option in Paint to do that. None that I can see.

You'll need to downsize the image, as stated above. Paint can do this, but you might lose a little picture quality in the process. You'll have better success if you have access to Photoshop or something like it. Alternatively you can edit the size of the image in your html as follows:

<img src="%filepath%\%filename%" height="50" width="40">

Note that the height and width above should leave the image at about the size of a postage stamp, probably smaller than you are looking for... experiment with the height and widthe to get it to the size you need.

I should have also included that the numbers in 'height' and 'width' represent the number of screen pixels... so for example an image with a height of 600 and a width of 800 would take up the full screen in an 800x600 screen resolution environment.

Hope that helps!

Sorry. Seems like too much for hundreds of images. I found a program tonight I am trying called Advanced JPEG Compressor. It compresses the files sizes form 1xM to xxkb, and it makes the resolution to 800x600 without quality loss.
