@Mama Shades I'm off to look. Do you have photoshop?
@Mama Shades I am gonna pop into the chat room (go to top and just hit chat and follow the steps) lets see if we can get you all okay! ♥
... I'm totally sending you one now... and it's gonna be a doozy!
HA! It wasn't so bad, was it? Looks like Anne is getting you all set up. I'll pop in the chat room and see if you're still there. No worries! Resizing can be tricky.
Lol @jenevang , no it wasn't! Just leftover guilt from my school days - I hated getting in trouble
A big shout-out to @AnneofAlamo for helping me out! She's the BEST!
Off to fix my layouts!
aw, you are too sweet...you actually helped me to help others too and together we are strong! bhwhahaha
@AnneofAlamo - it only worked for that one file!!!!!!! I'm about to quit!!!!
Sarah, don't quit! And don't worry about the pages you've already uploaded. Let's just focus on resizing the new ones, k? No biggie!
Which program are you scrapping in? Maybe I can show you a different way.
no quitting! Scrappers don't quit, we have control Z in our hobby! hang on Sarah!
I have changed all my jpegs to 600x 600 pixels. I am clicking edit image and uploading the new image. However, the size is not changing under "information". I use Artisan and not Photoshop or photo shop elements.
You know, it's not changing it for some reason. Don't fret about it. Just resize before uploading future uploads and all will be excellent!
Also, it may be changed but you'll see the old one b/c you'd have to clear your cache. Don't worry about that!
@jenevang I just resized the ones that needed to be resized but can't seem to find the Upload button to re-upload in the edit box *scratching head*
@jwalls39 Laura has a real quick screen shots on how to change it here.
You hit edit media, then click on the layout itself under EDit an IMage..
a pop up will come then you navigate to your new layout
Hope that helps ya! ♥
Thanks @AnneofAlamo! Got the ones that were over 250 down and re-uploaded
Resizing an image to 600 x 600 pixels may not change the file size to be 250 kb or below. They are two different measurements. Does your software have anyway to determine the kb size of your jpeg while you are in save mode?
In Artisan, they give you "dpi" sizing choices. The smallest being 72dpi.
DPI has to do with printing, it stands for "dots per inch" (that's dots of ink by the way). The measurement doesn't truly relate to images uploaded to a gallery, but maybe if you save your image at 600 x 600 pixels and 72dpi it may work. Good luck with this.
Saving in Artisan doesn't work that way. The only choices available are to save by dpi and the "quality" of the image saved. When I save at 72 dpi, the smallest pixel count is 864 x 864 and I usually save at a quality of 7/10. To get a lower pixel count, I have to go to Photobucket and resize and then save back to my computer. Frankly, I don't usually do that because it's a pain.
You get all the from me for including Daniel Jackson on this post!
I have a suggestion for you. There is a free program called FastStone Image viewer. With it you can not only view images, you can also resize them. It gives you the option of pixel size (width and height), and pixels per inch (also something which has to do with printing, but fewer pixels per inch or ppi makes for a smaller file size), and other options. I've been using this program for years and I love it so much, I paid for it and bought a license (license is optional). I can't recommend it highly enough. I'm pasting in a link below. If you decide to give it a try, please let me know if it does the job for you.
@bonnenuit and @heatherhiggs - I too am an Artisan 5 user. I usually save it as 72dpi. I then open the saved file with Windows Paint. Click Resize, Pixels, and pop in the 600. The maintain aspect ratio should be checked by default. I use Paint to resize my layouts, ATCs, siggies, double-layouts, etc. so that the biggest side is just 600. This should also get it under the file size limit.
So far, all versions of Windows come with Paint, so you should be able to do this. Just right-click on the jpg, Open With, and Paint should be choice.
