    image resize software

    Hi

    Does anyone know of a software that i can use to reduce image file size, i am currently using "irfanview" but my images still come out over 50KB when reducing them to 250x250 pixels
    i can't go any smaller in size or you won't see image properly.

    you can still use irfanview but when saving uncheck all "keep oryginal **** Data" it should give you smaller file size. what file you saving to?? png? gif?

    Hi Paul

    I've got it set to keep ratio, and to override original files it does reduce size but not by much

    Use photoshop and save as a gif instead of a jpg, that'll bring the file size down a bit.

    I don't know what software you're using but everything I use has a slider for jpeg compression. Selecting 80% reduces file size with no noticeable quality difference. Selecting 60% makes the file size even smaller. In all instances, the dimensions of the picture stay the same.

    I use this one and it always seems to do a good job. http://www.obviousidea.com/windows-s...image-resizer/

    If at first you don't succeed, read the manual.
