How To Re-size a Photo Using Paint

To add a profile picture for your team member, you will upload this image to ReviewBuzz. The largest file size you can upload is 2 megabytes (2MB). If you can’t upload your image, the file is too big. You will need to resize the image to make it smaller. 

To resize your image, you will need to open the image file on your computer with a picture viewer. Here’s how:

1. Go to your desktop and locate the image.

2. Double click on the image.

3. Image will open in your computer’s default image viewing application.

4. Look for an editing option. There may be an “Edit” menu, or a button that says, “Resize.” Locate one of these options and select it.

5. You may need to play around with the sizes to get it down to the correct size. You can always check how big the file is by hovering over it on your desktop and right clicking.

If you have Microsoft Office, you have a photo viewing application called Paint. Here is how to resize with Paint:

1. Open Paint by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Paint.

2. Click the Paint button , click Open, click the picture you want to resize, and then click Open.

3. On the Home tab, in the Image group, click Resize.

4. In the Resize and Skew dialog box, select the Maintain aspect ratio check box so that the resized picture will have the same aspect ratio as the original picture.
If the Maintain aspect ratio check box is selected, you only need to enter the horizontal value (width) or vertical value (height). The other box in the Resize area is updated automatically.

Do one of the following in the Resize area, and then click OK. You may need to play around with these options to get the image less than 2 MB.

To resize your picture by a certain percentage, click Percentage, and then enter a percentage to reduce the width by in the Horizontal box or a percentage to reduce the height by in the Vertical box.

To resize the picture so it's a specific size, click Pixels, and then enter a new width in the Horizontal box or new height in the Vertical box.

5. Click the Paint button , point to Save as, and then click the picture file type for the resized image.

6. Type a new file name in the File name box, and then click Save.
