How to Edit Digital Images : How to Resize JPEG Photos in Microsoft Paint – Howtoshtab – how to, lifehacks, tips and tricks

Hello, my name is Luis Estrada, and I am a software developer. In this video, I will show you how to resize JPEG photos in Microsoft Paint. Paint is included in your Windows Vista, or Windows XP operating system. Windows is a registered trademark of Microsoft, a company to which I have no affiliation. Go to the folder where you store the image. Right click on it, and select Edit. Now, paint is launched, and your image is ready to be resized. Select image, and Stretch and Skew, or press Ctrl W on your keyboard. Then, choose the horizontal and vertical percentage values. Let’s say that we want the resulting image of a third of it’s original size. Then, type 30% in each of the fields. Then, press Ok. Now, you can save your finished image, by selecting the File tab. Here you have two options.

You can simply click Save, and the original image will be replaced by the newly resized one, or you can select Save As, and you have the possibility of saving the image as a new file. Usually, it’s better if you take the second option, because this way you leave your original image intact, so click Save As, and choose a new name for the file. If you want to resize your image to make it larger, here’s what will happen. Right click on the new image, and select Edit. Now press Ctrl W, and enter 200%, on the horizontal and vertical fields. Press Ok, and save the new image. Go back to the folder where you have your pictures, and preview the original image against the new one. You will see that the new image does not maintain the same quality, when expanded. This is because the program has to invent the extra pixels needed, to create a larger picture. There’s no real benefit from resizing an image, to a higher resolution.

Instead, you can just zoom in the preview of the picture, or expand it, when you need to print it. I’m Luis Estrada, and I’ve just shown you how to edit your digital images..
