Gallery: How to resize photos

As you know, maximum size of the picture that can be uploaded in the Gallery is

Width: 1024 pixels
Height: 1024 pixels

Maximum size of the file is: 128KB

If your picture exceeds those limits, you have to RESIZE it in order to upload it in the Gallery.

1. Microsoft Photo Editor

(START -> Programs -> Microsoft Office Tools -> Microsoft Photo Editor)

1. File -> Open
2. Image -> Resize
3. In the pop-up window:
- Units -> Pixels
- Width -> 1024, 800 or 640 pixels
- OK
4. File -> Save As
5. Exit

2. ACDSee 5.0

1. Select picture
2. Tools -> Resize
3. In the pop-up window:
Size in pixels: width -> 1024, 800 or 640
Resize -> Reduce
Check 'Preserve original aspect ratio'
Fit within -> 'Width and height'
Click Options
Choose 'Rename modified images and place in source folder'
OK
OK

ONLY *.JPG pictures can be inserted in the Gallery!

You can use the same process to create AVATARS
