How to Resize Your Images - Smarter Ways

Sep 12, 2008
The steps necessary to get the first and always best quality resize are summarized. The correct file formats for saving the output of the image and the pixel size of the digital camera play a great role in determining the quality of your resized photo. These decisions should play a large factor in your goal of getting the smartest resized photo possible.

Digital Pictures in their original format can be very large in size, sometimes from approximately 100kb to 250kb. Sending images with this larger file size can lead to frustration with end-users, who may not be able to download and see the pictures, especially if sent as thumbnails. A better user experience results from pictures that are reduced in filesize to the 20kb to 40kb range, using an online image resizer to resize the images so that the end user is able to quickly download and see the pictures as intended. While there are many free online image resizer programs available, these helpful tips can ensure that the online image resizing process is perfect.

There are an endless number of online picture resizer websites available on the Internet, many of which are free. A difficult decision lies in choosing the best online image resizer available that will resize images online in the shortest amount of time while maintaining perfect image quality. Often these programs will ask for basic input to begin the online image resizing process, with the size of the resized photo being the main input entered. Typically, the photo that is to be resized is uploaded to the online image resizer Web server. The Web application will ask for a custom set of input values, including required size such as length, width, pixel, etc. After entering the required input, and pressing the requisite resize or online image resize button, you will receive your output image. Many online image resizer websites also offer the ability to perform some minor cosmetic changes to the photo so that the quality appears to improve after resizing, however care must be taken, as too many pixels can also make a compressed photo look much more hazy and dull.

The best Digital picture quality results from using the best camera. I personally use a 5 Mega pixel camera to get excellent quality photos. I use an offline resizing source, Photoshop, which I found to be the best offline resizing tool. For those of us who do not have any software for resizing available, there is the easily accessible online image resizer.

There are many offline software packages, in addition to free online picture resizer web applications available on the net. Any one of these can be used for resizing photos, but the correct decisions must be made to choose the smartest ways to resize photos or pictures. Choosing the excellent online image resize tool and correct file format for saving the photos will ensure the best output. It is important to always ensure before sending digital pictures, that the photos are resized in such a way that they can be easily downloaded for viewing on all types of monitors and over different Internet connection bandwidths.
