Easy Guide to Midget/Resize your Photos

23 posts in this topic

Hello Hunters!

I noticed many of you got problems with handling own pictures(resizing them/optimizing their weight). Not all of you can be familiar with computers but is really simple so no worries.

First things first. I know there is many pages u can do it online(never used anyone to be honest), but as i mention before without siimple knoweldge our security can be put to risk. I mean by this, we handle our passion for plants and law is against us, so anytime you try to use online services smart cookies collect many informations about us. Think about it very serious.

Thats why we need some software, best free and simple. No trials or piracy lads. I dont advertise this software, but as a user of it for about 4 years i never heaved problems with it, and abilities to do many things with our photos are amazing(especially with many plugins aviable around).

Here is software im talking about, after installing it it's time to work.

As we can see photo size is 5.3MB is not huge(RAW photos can weight even twice then this). So what we do is.

Then we chose resolution we want, 800x600 will be perfect.

Ok

As a result we heave 541kb file, not bad but we can do it lower.

When we resize pic to 800x600 we go to this menu and chose Save As. On right will appear small window we looking for.

I chosed 70% and saved the picture.

Now we got 124kb, quite nice. Messing with quality button can give even smaller sizes, try to fit best for your own needs.

This is effect. Something is visible and size is small. Now forum handle bigger pics, but keep in mind your space for upload is limited.

Hope it helps a bit. Thanks for reading. Sorry for my bad english. :)

Small update on Metadata acces ( exif / iptc / xmp )

We are looking for METADATA - (version 4.33): allows IrfanView to handle EXIF/IPTC/Comment information from compatible files.

But whole package is viable for many things and it's only 8,9MB.

So, let's look.

If any of you are running windows,go to windows website and I think its power toys image resizer,or google image resizer for windows,its easy takes 2 secs...You dont need to do this though,if you save you post,just edit it,click on image and shorten the width,ive found 530 fits in nicely,that is if Tokage gives me chance to do them lol,yes his that quick..

I dont know if its to much work or if it could be done,automaticly resize?

thanks elektro for this.

just remind everyone u can resize to 800 pixels wide for the best resolution. the website then doesnt compress the pics and you'll get strain hunters live thread quality pics (maybe not as good, but same jpg quality)

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
