    Photo resizing.

    Hi All,

    Not sure where to post this, so I guess this part of the forum will cover most bases.

    I'm looking for you 'Guardians of Server Space' to guide me to a program (free) that will help me resize photographs.

    Also, for those that do this regularly and have some experience of the output, what can you actually set (dpi, resolution, dimensions) and what are the the best settings to use to still give a reasonable quality result?

    Kol.

    +1 for Image Resizer for Windows. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

    For printing A4, you'll need a reasonable resolution, but just for dropping photos into documents or a webpage you can get away with something a lot smaller. I find that the default setting "Large" is more than adequate for printing A5 or A4 most uses. It creates files with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 72dpi, which are about 350K in size.

    Plus it create a context menu entry so is real easy to use.

    I usually use Rawtherapee because most of the time I need not only to resize but also to change some parameters on the images in an automatic way.
    Dpi, resolution and dimensions depend on what you have to do with your images: 70 dpi for internet, 300 dpi for printed photo, for example. There isn't a recipe good for everyone, you had to learn what you need.
    Hope this can help
