This will primarily be of interest to those of you who are members of the Community Forum on my blog. For those who are not familiar with the forum let me introduce you to it. The forum is a place where scrollers from all over the world can meet and discuss our favorite hobby. There are currently over 4000 members and it stays pretty active. If you are not a member check it out.You will find the link to the forum in the left column of the blog.
One feature of the forum is a photo gallery. This lets members upload their favorite projects for show and tell. To save space on the server the photos have to be less than 640 pixels on their longest side. Pictures saved from a digital camera are much larger and have to be re-sized before they can be uploaded. This can be tricky for those who are not familiar with graphics programs. Several people have ask me to help them with this process.
I wanted to give you a tool to make this as simple as possible. I call it PixSize. It has one button. I don't think it can get much simpler. When you click that one button it will let you select a picture to re-size. That picture will then be re-sized to the dimension in the box. It will automatically be saved in the same directory as the original. The file name will have _thumb appended to the new file. It can then be uploaded to the gallery.
If this sounds confusing watch the video below. It shows what you need to know.
