{once again I need help...please}

Can any of my Apple/Mac experts tell me how to reduce/resize my pictures??

It used to be very easy to do with PAINT in my old Dell computer.  I have tried everything, and googled, and searched on the Apple website, and.......nothing!  I cannot believe that there is not an easy way to reduce the size of my pics before publishing them on the blog.  I am so frustrated!

Hey Pretty girl!

I use and it seems to work pretty well. Macs are so weird, i know. I hate the iphoto feature and how you have to dig to find your photos in all of those stupid 2008, 2009, 2007 folders that aren't even organized by date. So frustrating!

I can't give you any advice but I share in your fustration! I have to do some of my blog posts at work on my Dell b/c I just don't have the time to figure it out.

I have never tried to resize my photos. Can you believe it?! If you upload to flikr, you can choose the code for whatever size photo you want.

I'm guessing you don't have photoshop? If you did, you could resize them there.

Open the image in preview. Go to Save As. You can rename it or save it under the same name. I always have a hi and lo res copy of all my images. After you do the name it will ask what resolution you want. High, Medium, Low. Select Low. And you're done. Easy Peasy.

I use a Mac and I've yet to figure out how to resize my pictures either :( let me know if you find a way that works. I just usually crop them through iphoto to make them smaller.

Thanks to everyone for the help! PIP's is pretty easy to use, and after I figured it out--Jaina's Apple download is also pretty easy to use. I guess they are both about the same # of steps.

I could not get the Preview to actually reduce the visual size of the picture, so not sure if I'm doing it wrong there.

I am happy to at least have a way to do it now!
