Resizing an image is one of the most common procedures we do with pictures. Typically a photo will be 1-2 or even 3Mb. Sending several of these in an email would be too big for the receiver to download. And a picture this size is not suitable for a webpage/blog as it would take some time for the webpage to load.
Go to Image menu – Image size. The dialogue box gives you the original size in pixels. Make sure Preserve aspect ratio is ticked, so when you reduce the size the picture will not deform.
Enter a value in width, for example 400, and see how the other values change automatically. Click OK. See how its size has decreased.
Look at the picture and decide if you are satisfied with the size. You can undo unwanted change - use the undo arrow or go to Edit menu. Save the image. Once you have resized your picture, use the Save As to save the new file rather than using Save, which will overwrite your original file. You can save as type ‘png’ or ‘jpeg’
Write your post and click on where you would like your image to appear. Click on Upload/Insert - Add Media. Browse for the image you want to add to your post. Upload image The image is now stored in Gallery.
