Resizing Picture

1) Open the picture using "Microsoft Paint"
(Start-->Programs-->Accessories-->Paint)

2) Click on "Image" menu, and then "Stretch/Skew"
(You can also press the shortcut: Ctrl+W)

Image

3) In "Stretch" area, enter percentages for horizontal and vertical.
To maintain the aspect ratio of the image, enter the same % for
horizontal and vertical. For example, if you enter 50%, image will be resized in half.

4)Click OK and do not forget to save it (or save as)

Hey guys, a fantastic free program for minor photo editing/cropping i found is Irfanview www.irfanview.com

It is millions of times better than paint, and lets you save by quality and file type, and is super easy to use.
