Photo Editing and Online Storage:

Image Resizer

A great way to resize your photos before uploading or emailing them.

Image Resizer (64 bit)Just locate the photos on your computer, highlight them (by holding CTRL and clicking each one) and then right click on any one of them and choose RESIZE PICTURES. I recommend you choose LARGE image format. It will create a copy of the file in the same folder with (Large) added to the filename. Note: If you are never going to print them out, you can choose advanced and choose replace originals to save space on your computer.
