Can someone explain to me in layman's terms how to resize pictures?

I'm running Vista, and it is opening the pics with Kodak EZShare, which is anything except easy! :frown:

Joe, Microsoft's Office Picture editor is pretty easy to work with. You should be able to set it as your default photo viewer.

Before you open a picture, place your cursor on the file name of the pic, and right click the mouse, a menu should pop up. About halfway down the list it should have an "open with ....." option. Click on that, and that will show all of the photo editors available to you. Pick the Microsoft one. I find it really easy to resize/crop pics with.

I think I tried that. The puter keeps wanting to default to EZShare. I'll try it again. I've lost track of how many ways I've tried to resize. :)

While there are plenty of ways to do it, including the built-in stuff, I've installed VSO image resizer. It's a free download, and it puts a shortcut on the right click menu. Doesn't do anything fancy, just lets you pick one or a bunch of pics to resize to a bunch of common sizes. It's very simple and fast to use.

Basically, just right click the pic you want to resize, select 'resize with VSO' from the pull down menu, and pick what size you want it to be.

For XP users this is the simplest one down load it then when ever you need just right click on the photo click the second from of four choices and you are done. With Vista VSO is a breeze use zelatore's link.

Thanks, I installed the VSO resizer, the only aggravating thing it asks me to upgrade everytime I use it. Is there a way to make it quit asking me that?

I don't see resizing as an option on that menu.
