View Full Version : Reducing No. of pixels in pictures

12-01-2004, 05:10 PM
Hello All,
I have a number of massive pictures taken on a digital camera (approx 1meg file size). I wish to send some of these via e-Mail and of course this is far too good a quality for most normal purposes such as letters to friends etc. I want to reduce the size, which is not so difficult, but I do not know how to reduce the number of pixels down to say 25kb. I recognise this will mean a 'grainer' end result but in some cases that is what I want to do for other things I have in mind.
Can anyone tell me how to do this? I have IrfanView and Adobe PhotoShop.
Regards Robert.

Yes I have tried that before, it does not alter the file size.

Sorry BillyT,
You are right. I have tried it again and before I was fooled by the written info below. As you said the image has reduced in size and number of pixels.
Thanks a lot for the info.
