How to use the picture editing software Picasa to resize your images.
Picasa is a free software program supplied by Google.
Once downloaded it automatically sorts all the images stored on your computer. By pre-sorting your images you can easily modify the sizes either individually or in bulk. Other features include minor touch ups, creating collages and sending as an email etc.
If you are looking for a package to simply manage and reduce the size of your images then Picasa is ideal. Alternatively for more editing features we recommend another package from Google called Picnik. Although Picnik does not have the bulk uploading and resizing capabilitie of Picasa it does provide extensive editing tools, inclusion of text and effects.

The following instructions will demonstrate how to reduce the size of your images ready to use on your website.
This may take sometime depending on the number of images you have.
Tip: Create a file on your PC that just contains images that are reduced especially for your website. Place this file where it is easy to access and give it a name such as "Re-sized web images". Your website images are then easily accessible when you need them.
8. Select to re-size the images
9. Choose an image size no more than 400 pixels by moving the slider bar or typing in the box provided.
10. Click 'Export'
11. Your images have now been re-sized and saved to the file you created ready to use. By default Picasa will now save all future images to this file.
