I tried this and it does not work for me. The "process" button for me to select the file to resize is "grayed out" and doesnt give me the option to click it....am I missing a key step in the process?

 

Hi,

 

Could you tell me what browser you're using? Are you able to successfully select a local file to upload?

 

Thanks,

Ben.

 

P.S. Yes, this should work OK on iPad, Android tablets and also on iPhones.

Thanks. Your program will spare me a lot of frustration.

Just wanted to say thanks. I tried it out and had no problems with it. This will make it much easier to add photos.

RIP Molly...Oct. 2000 - July 2013 For 13 years you have been my best friend and companion, giving love and asking only for love in return. May you rest now, free from your pain. I will miss you girl, and will keep you in my heart forever....the sweetest dog and best friend ever! I'll see you again one day.

Just use "Image Resizer for Windows".

Image Resizer 3

Image Resizer for Windows - Home
https://imageresizer.codeplex.com/
May 31, 2014 - Image Resizer for Windows is a utility that lets you resize one or more selected image files directly from Windows Explorer by right-clicking.

They have a 32-bit and a 64-bit version you may download for free.

The downloaded file was scanned with multiple anti-virus utilities; no malware was detected.

Always create a restore point before adding any new programs or utilities like Image Resizer 3.

Make sure your anti-virus software is up to date, and always scan all files that you download. (Trust know one.)

Once "Image Resizer for Windows" is installed, open "Windows Explorer".

Select (highlight) one or more of your images (photos), with your mouse right click, select "Resize pictures" from the displayed menu.

Select "Small", "Medium", "Large", or "Mobile" from the options presented.

The original file is not altered in any way. A new file will be created with " (Small)", " (Medium)", " (Large)", or " (Mobile)" inserted into the original file name.

What about users who are running Mac OS or Linux? Or those with an iPhone, iPad, Android device? What about everyone who doesn't run Windows? The tool I have written does exactly the same as the one you have suggested, but runs in any web browser so it's not system-dependent.

 

Also, the tool you have suggested above seems to resize images purely based upon their pixel dimensions. Mine is a little more 'intelligent' and complex than that. It will throttle the filesize and resulting dimensions to produce the largest, best quality image that fits within the filesize constraints of the USMF...

 

Cheers,

Ben.

i have been having problems with some of my pictures and found my editor in MY PICTURE was not doing anything with the resolutions, so I went back to irfranview, it a picture editor you download to your computer not a third party like PB. I changed the resolution to 1024x768 and they work at least for me
