Easy Picture Posting with MSPaint

Postby Still Life » Thu Jun 22, 2017 1:45 am

Admittedly, I'm posting this as a link for me to point to when someone asks how to post a picture. Been a few requests as of late.
So many of the existing posts point to off-site Resizing programs, and it's simpler than that.

Maximum picture size on HD is 800x800 pixels
To resize:
Open your picture in MSPaint
Click Resize
Click Pixels
Change LARGER number to 800
Leave Maintain aspect ratio checked
Do Save As and remember new name

To post on HD:
At bottom of your post, click Upload attachment
Browse for your resized photo, and click Add the file
Add a comment if you want
Put cursor where you want picture to display in your post, and click Place inline

We have several threads on posting but I agree this is well written. If you use an iPad there are several good apps. I use SimpleResize very easy.

I do a lot of digital graphics but had to check to see if this newer friggin computer of mine still had MSPaint... (which I haven't thought of since Win 95 or Win 3.1 came out)

Maybe so CH - but it's the easiest way I've found to submit a photo.
Sometimes "newer" is not always "better".

I allus used mspaint, then I tried & loved paintdotnet. cropping is much easier, after you get the hang of it.

It is free, too!

For diehard XP users, like me!
