View Full Version : In Need of Help

:mad: I have never had a problem with any picture adjustments, especially resizing and shrinking!! Joe has asked me to get his picture sized for his fundraising page, and I have been working on it for 3 days now. I am not getting any college work done fiddling with this picture!! LOL The smallest I can get it is to 48KB, and it has to go down to 30KB.

Maybe a suggestion for next year, see if we can up the size a tad :p

If anyone can help me, I would be soooooo greatly appreciative!!! ;)
Actually this trimmed image looks terrible, if you want I will send you the original photo so you can do it right :D
I think what it is, is that I am trimming it, then photobucket is resizing it to their standard which is distorting it.

There is a max width of 230 pixels on the image. Start with reducing the size and go from there. A JPG file compressed to 60% should be plenty small. Or just email me the original.

I used a site like this: http://www.resize2mail.com/ to help another person resize their photo...that might help a bit more? Worth a shot at least

b1029384756 i don't know what you did, but thank you so much!!

Erich, I was taking it down to the 100s, and it was still too big, as well as saving it at a lower image quality. I know all of those tricks too ;):p

Thank you for that site faegilr, I bookmarked it for a next time, if there ever is one lol.

Thank you all for your help!! It is greatly appreciated!!:D

I just opened it with Microsoft Photo Editor and saved it at 60% JPEG quality factor. Normally 85-90 is the standard for an acceptable quality/compression ratio, but when needing a very small file, particularly if the dimensions themselves aren't too big such as this one, you can go lower without it looking terrible.

I used MGI Photo Suite, but I forgot I also have the Microsoft Office stuff too!! UUGGHHHH. I took it down to 25% quality in MGI and still couldn't get it below 48KB LOL

Thank you again!! You got the whole thing, I was cropping all the way down to cutting off part of the white sign, and part of the Mt Washington sign as well!!
