How do I resize an image?

Post by VamHelsing » Sun Nov 03, 2019 6:50 pm

Looked at the old VW and the link does not exist... When I try to load photos from my Iphone the
image is WAY too large... Thanks.

Using Photoshop, it is CTRL+ALT+i

Thanks, but there was something posted on the old VW site that showed how to resize the images. Don't
know if that still works up the updated VW 2.0....

The discussion board will automatically downsize your images to a reasonable size, as long as you upload JPEG images and the file you attempt to upload is less than 5 MB. It won't do this for other image file types, so please refrain from uploading these, if possible. Instructions for resizing on the old VW were probably to do the resizing using some application on your computer or phone, and these will vary depending on your input device.

On a typical cell phone image, if they are above the 5mb limit here, they are usually just slightly above at around 6-8mb in which case simply cropping the images tends to get them below the 5mb limit for the software to automatically resize them here. If not, try turning the HDD option on your phone camera OFF before shooting the pics.

What I do from my iPhone is send the photos to my email and when it ask me what file size I want to send it in, I choose the smaller size. So when I open up my email it should be the smaller size pic.
I may not be the best, but I do not know anyone better.
