How to resize images in paint!

Postby Lord Libidan » Sat Dec 31, 2011 12:40 pm

This guide is done in XP, although all windows systems use the same method.

First open your image up (the default program is paint).
Look to the top right, and click "Image" then go down to "Stretch/Skew". You could also press Ctrl and W at the same time whilst paint is open.

You must then specify the strech percentage. Reduce the dimensions equally until the size of the image is at maximum 650 tall by 500 wide.
To find out your image size you must click "OK" and then place the cursor in the bottom right corner. The size will then be displayed under it.
