Are you creating a website or blog post? You will need images to make the website or a blog post look attractive and beautiful. But the images you have may not fit perfectly, which can result in an uglier look than what you were trying to achieve. Also, resizing images can drastically reduce the size of the image, which can increase your website’s page speed.
But the question is how to resize images?
Resizing images is easy and not so easy too. You may be scratching your head as to which tool/software/app to use to achieve this. And it would be more difficult if you have too many images to resize to a particular size. But do not worry! This article will walk you through how you can resize images using the existing software on your system and using an online tool on any device. Also, he will share how you can resize a single image and what to do if you have too many images. So, let’s take a look.
Resize images on Windows system
Windows system comes with a pre-installed application, MS Paint. Here we are going to use MS Paint which will help us accomplish the task.
NOTE: You should only use MS Paint if you have 1 or 2 image files to resize because you can’t bulk resize images using it. If you have too many images to resize and want to resize them in bulk, you can use the online tool mentioned below.
- On your computer, navigate to the folder where your images are located.
- Right-click on the image and then click on Open With -> Paint.Photo: Collection
- The image will open in MS Paint. Now click on the resize option at the top.
- Choose pixels option and enter the desired pixel you want to resize to and click on OK. you can also use percentage option when you don’t want to deal with exact pixels. Be sure to keep the “keep aspect ratio” checked box, otherwise the image may be distorted.
- The image is now resized!
- Or you can use “Ctrl+S” To override the original image or to save it separately, click File->Save like and then navigate to the folder where you want to save the file and then click Save.
- Repeat the same steps to resize another image.
As I said above, if you have too many images, using MS Paint is not a good choice, as it will take a lot of time to resize the images. You can use the following method to batch resize image files.
For Mac: Mac users can use the “Advance” image resizer app. You need to use the “adjust size” and enter the height and width you want to resize to. Be sure to keep the “Scaling proportionally” checkbox checked to keep the aspect ratio the same as the original image.
