Reduce the size of a picture

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

How do I reduce scan file size when the resolution is already 200 dpi?


An 8.5 inch wide document scanned at 200 dpi gives you an image that is 1700 pixels wide. This is almost enough to fill a fullHD TV screen at native resolution (1920 pixels wide) which is unnecessary detail. I would use any picture editing programme (many free ones available) to reduce the overall pixel width of your already scanned images by 50 percent. This will automatically reduce the 1MB image to 250k. If you can scan again, use 100 dpi to scan - the result is same; image will be half as wide (and long), and picture file size one quarter of the 200 dpi scan.

MagicJack upgrade left me with a HUGE dial pad! How can I reduce the size of this key pad?


Here are a couple things I would try:
  • Ctrl and the minus "-" key will make some windows smaller.
  • If it's a particular resolution, say 600X400 pixels you can make it smaller, in relation to the desktop by increasing the resolution form say, 800x600 to 1080x768. You can then increase the font sizes so everything else is similar to the sizes they were before. But in some windows that open, the text might mot fit the limited window size..

What is the difference in the optical and digital zoom?


Hi,

Find the difference below

Digital Zoom

1. Digital zoom is a part of digital cameras, and camcorders, which helps to crop the entire image, and then digitally enlarge the size of the viewfinder of the portion that is needed to zoom in on
2. Digital zoom crops the image down to a centred area with the same ratio as the original, and also interpolating the result back up to the pixel dimensions of the original. this method involves cropping, hence the resolution and quality is reduced
3. Digital zoom, crops a portion of the image and then enlarges it back to size. And due to this, image quality is reduced in comparison with the original one.
4. Using the digital zoom allows the user to get closer to the subject when the photographer wants to be discreet about taking pictures, like taking a picture of a person in a graduation ceremony.

Optical Zoom

1. While taking a picture using a Camera to want to get a close shot of the subject without moving physically closer, photographers use the optical zoom.
2. The optical zoom ratio of a digital camera measures how much the lens can actually zoom in to make subjects appear closer. Optical zoom, enlarges a picture while keeping the resolution and sharpness of the picture high.

3. There is no relation between optical zoom and the resolution of the photo, as optical zoom only enlarges the whole image or the subject to a certain range. So image quality only depends upon the mega pixel (MP) of the camera

4. Optical zoom is very useful, while taking a picture of a landscape, or to get a closer view of a subject, without reducing the quality of the entire image, like taking a picture of a Rainbow in the sky.

Ron

Once u zoom into the picture that is very far away how do u keep the picture zoomed in after u snap the shot ...


Once you've framed your shot (zoomed in) and taken the picture. That's it, the picture you've taken is the one in your view finder, and that's the way its kept.

However, if you want to zoom in further, you can using the software you were provided with your camera, you can, you can also zoom in using your camera menu. Once happy you can then save the edited picture. But this time its a digital zoom and it will reduce the resolution. The picture won't look quite as fine. It will be a balance between picture quality and the extent you want to zoom in.

Can i print a picture in just seconds


Reduce the size of the picture. it will help a little bit....but truely it depends upon the printer that how fast it prints,

one way to reduce size is to just open it in MS paint and then save back in jpeg format it will reduce the size upto 80 percent with no pixel damage.

take care
