    I am finally getting around to putting some of my wedding photos in a frame (I got married in October) and I have to crop and re-size them in order to fit. I have done this before but I completely forgot how to do it! [​IMG]
    My photographer gave me all our wedding images on a CD in JPEG format.

    The frame has many different sizes of squares and I want to match the picture accordingly. For example, I want to take a normal 4x6 photo crop it and then resize it to be 2.5 x 2.5 for one of the squares. Anyone know a good online program and how to do this??? I am completing lost and would appreciate any help!

    [​IMG] Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum.

    You could download a program called GIMP, which is an image editing program. I'm pretty sure that it could do the job. Google's Picasa might also be able to handle cropping and resizing.

    I'm not aware of any 'on line' applications for this.

    Try pxn8. I've used it a couple of times. Be sure to check conditions of use.

    I have downloaded GIMP, how do you resize the picture? I want it to be 3.5 x 5.5 rather than 4x6... I really have no idea what I am doing?

    I don't know GIMP, I'm sure it has a Help section, did you look there?

    Sarina, if you want me to resize the pictures, I'll do it for you. Do you have any instant messengers?

    Well its 11:50pm on a wednesday night. I don't really have a lot to do so i wouldn't mind doing it.

    If you want me to, send them to my email address (im going to send you a pm) and then list what size you want the pictures.

    I just got your message this morning, sorry. I can't e-mail the pictures because they are way too big (I've tried before). Thanks anyways.

    I thought it was settled yesterday. I had a tip from one of the poster here about program called Irfanview, the website is below here. Anyway for quick do into practical world, once you installed it load the picture you intended click Edit. You see the Crop feature there. I have not use it so I can,t comment on it.

    Alternatively you can download Ulead photo explorer which I have the free version - and the croping feature is there. You have 7 days trial so you may use that 7 days to crop your photos.

    Happy chopping

    Try out QuickResizer

    It allows you to specify your output image size (in pixels or percent). It will also resize all photos in a folder in one fell swoop.
