I usually just resize them in Paint! I don’t know if it really distorts them, I haven’t noticed. You could try it. Just open the image in Paint, and then click Image, then Stretch/Skew, and cut it down by 50% or something. 🙂

I would suggest you download GIMP. It is 100% free and open source and is pretty much just like Photoshop. You can use that program to resize your images without distorting them or losing a lot of quality. I hope that helps!

Dl that and you can use the second tab to do multiple pictures…you select the folder they’re in, then select a new folder to save the new resized pictures to and let it go.  Easy.

what about flickr?  Upload then redownload to multiple sizes? or just using Microsoft Office Picture manager.  Just open the file with it then you can resize or change the type of file.

Ditto on Flickr, PS Elements, GIMP, etc. Also, are they professional pics or personal pics? If they’re professional (assuming you have the rights to publish them), I’d contact your photographer. If you’re going to be posting his/her work online, then s/he might resize them for you to ensure that they post correctly (maybe, maybe not; just a thought!).

I have no advise to the OP, but I did want to say that your first paragraph is too funny!

Good Luck!

I’ve never seen an instance where microsoft office picture manage can’t open them.  I’ve opened RAW files on there.  I would try flickr or another photo uploading site.  Just remember that most have a montly limit so unless you have a pro account it may not be enough. 

I’d start by contacting your photographer.  If this is the first task that you’re having trouble with it may be best to go through them.

That is a pretty slick little piece of free software. You can add frames, borders, etc, but you can also batch resize. Meaning you can drag a bunch of pictures in it, tell it to resize to, say 750 pixels on the long side and it will do them all for you.
