Take them into MS Paint, and resize them to 640x480. Click on Image, then on Attributes, and change the size, there.

That doesn't seem to resize the photo, Bruce. Check it out.

It crops to 640x480 if the photo is larger, and puts the photo in a 640x480 white space if the photo is smaller.

Can be done in PhotoSuite very easily.

 

Most cameras use the same aspect ratio as 640X480 so the image will not be distorted.

 

Open PhotoSuite 11

Load your image

Click resize

Change 'inches' to 'pixels'

Type in 640 X 480

Click OK

Save file or Save File As if you want a copy and not alter the original

 

IF the original is not the same aspect ratio, first use the CROP feature to the correct aspect ratio and then resize.

No white space in mine. It resized it, perfectly, but I am running XP, not Vista.

If you are using VISTA, right mouse click on the photo jpg and select SEND TO. A window will open that will allow you to resize the JPG. The photo will then get attached into an Outlook new mail document.

 

Another method is to use Roxio Photo Email Assistant then select webmail and small size it will then resize the jpg to 640x480 and place the new photo into a folder which you then can use.

That's what's puzzling me, Bruce. I was doing it in XP too. Wonder what I'm doing wrong.

 

Edit: No, it seems mine is behaving properly. It's supposed to crop the photo if it's too big, and pad it with background color if the photo is too small. MS Paint calls it resizing, but all it's really doing is putting the same sized photo into a bigger or smaller frame. See the second note in the Help.

I suggest you forget this one, Bruzki. :(

I'm getting the same behavior in MS Paint as you described.

I get the same thing as you Brendon with MS Paint in WinXP. It seems to crop the image. And there is no 'zoom' less than 100%. LOL Kinda makes it difficult to view an entire image from my camera.

 

Even tried a 'select all' and then going to Attributes. Still crops on my machine.
