Different ways of Re-sizing pictures;
Resizing images for posting in efi group in Photos:
Yes, this resize feature (you have to click on the three horizontal dots, seen at right, to see more options), is a very easy and good option for reducing the file size considerably.
This will be very helpful to all:
To re-size in Microsoft Office Picture Manager, which is available in most Window based computers: Open your picture in Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Click on ‘Picture’ in the top at Menu Bar & Select ‘Resize’ under it & select say 800 by 600 pixels, Click on OK. Select File–> Save as, choose file name & click on save button. It is much reduced in size. If, it’s still more than 150 KB, it can be reduced within 150 Kb by selected width of say 700 pixels or less instead of 800 pixels. Similar procedure can be followed in other picture processing software.
To re-size all pictures in a folder at a time: Keep a copy of the folder (of which all pictures are to be re-sized) under My pictures folder. Open Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Select the desired folder from the left side Pan. Select all the pictures to be re-sized from the main Pan. Click on ‘Edit Pictures’ in the formatting bar at the top. Select on ‘Re-size’ in the right hand pan. Select size say 800 by 600 pixels. Click on OK at the bottom. Click on Save button.

But this is not what I am alluding to… there was a thread of VoF i think where most likely DInesh ( or Satish may be) gave links for two programs on the net that can batch process a lot of pictures for resizing etc… I wanted those specific links or a link to that thread…
You can download the following file to your desktop. Then you can just drag and drop images on the icon of this file to make a smaller resized copy. You can even drag and drop a whole folder to resize all the files in it:
this was it and that was you!!
I am unable to resize pictures.
All this time, I was comfortable sending pictures thro’ Picasa to resize them.
But somehow it is showing an error if I send a mail.
And somehow I don’t have Microsoft Office Picture Manager in my laptop.
So till the problem gets resolved, I am unable to post new pictures.
Will try to rectify it.
