Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
I am trying to reduce (zoom out) the size (not pixels) of a picture taken. I would like it to fit into an area of 2x2 inches when it is printed. Is there a way to do this? I have a Canon Powershot Digital S5. Thanx for your time ;)
Didn't your camera come with a CD and some type of software with it? Most digital photo editing programs allow you to zoom in and crop pictures or resize, Adobe Photo Deluxe allows you to crop or resize, both are different functions and very easy to use in this smaller way toned down user friendly consumer version of Photoshop, it is no longer supported but it's abundant and many time free.
I have a Canon 5S is, it came with a DVD solution disk ver 30.0 and on this disk is Zoom Browser EX 5.8, you can even download it from Canon and learn about it as well at the Canon site. Many Printers you purchase come with easy to use photo editing programs as well. I use Adobe Elements 6 which is about a 100 bucks new. I'm comfortable using Adobe products though and I strongly believe once you find a quality noteworthy product you should stick with it and not explore other products to save time and confusion. I also have Olympus Master 2 because it's really necessary for use with my DSLR and not used for image editing plus it allows me to choose Elements as my primary processing software.
For entry level use, I hands down recommend anyone to choose the Basic Adobe photo products... yes these are older software versions with no support, but they are very friendly and after using them you can decide to upgrade to Elements. Corel products are my second recommendation...once you like something just stay with it because the art isn't the program, it's you mastering the programs. Photoshop, the $1000 version? This is for production, studio, and professional uses involved...Elements is Photoshop without all the tools and capabilities

Try downloading a free program like paint.net (www.getpaint.net), open the photo in it, find image size in one of the toolbars (usually the image toolbar) and setting it to 2 inches
