Robo, when I used Irfanview to resize my digital photos, this is the size that they turned into (from 4 MB).  Is this an OK size to post on the forum, or is it still too big?  I don't want to put then on the forum if they take up too much room.  Not a computer whizzy type person, so I have no clue actually what the sizes mean or anything.  Have a wonderful day, best of this beautiful life we livin'.  Cindi

Check out "VSO image resizer" its free and works like a charm. I used to use Ifranview until I found VSO.

Cindi, once you resize your photo with Irfanview, you need to save it.  Do File/Save As and give it a different name from your original (so you don't overwrite it, unless that's what you want to do).  If you don't do this, you're not saving the resized copy.  Your 4 mb photo should be around 100 kb after resizing.

Ann, hmmm... I did do that I resized (control R) and then saved it as a different named pic(s), I always use keyboard commands, so fast.  When I saved as, the size came out as 800 kb, I am going to fool around with pics more and see if I can resize them even smaller.  When I used to use Image resizer (MS power toys), it would resize down to about 47 kb, so I think that I am still doing something wrong with Irfanview.  But, I'll work a little harder.

I think that I am going to try VSO image resizer like Mick suggested, I'll check out that program for resizing and see.

The higher quality of picture that you were speaking about with Irfanview compared to MS image resizer, in my own use, would not be of any worry to me because the only thing I do with resized images is embedd them into this forum, so I think that the quality is sufficient for here.  Anyways, gonna check things out.

A weird thing with Irfanview I see is that when I open a picture in this program the picture opens highly magnified and each picture I have to click the button to decrease the size.  It is amazing how these programs can zoom into pictures like they do.  Any ideas why Irfanview pictures open up so zoomed?  Have a great day best of our life.  Cindi

View-Display Options-Fit Image to Window will fix the view problem you're having with Irfanview.

I do like to keep my pictures sharp, the image degradation was noticeable to me, so I stopped using that particular Powertoy.  It's nice and quick, but not for me.  But that's the beauty of software, there's something out there for everyone!
