How can I shrink pictures for ebay listing?

My image files are way too large.


Answer by  JNorton (79)

There are a number of free software packages which can shrink images for you. I can suggest you download "Easy Thumbnails" or "Faststone image re-sizer". A quick Google search should lead you to these freeware programs.

If you have Microsoft Office the easiest way is to open the images in Microsoft Office Picture Manager and click on "press Picture" and choose the setting you like. "For Documents" and "For Web" are best. Just be sure to "Save As" if you don't want to overwrite your file.

You will need a software program to do this. Check out the open source program GIMP, which is available for all major platforms. Then open the picture in GIMP and chose resize from the menu. Set the size to whatever you need and like.

You need to open them in an image editing program such as The GIMP (free software). Once you've done that, just go to Image -> Scale Image to resize it. For eBay listings, a maximum width/height of 500px is required, so just crop the largest to that.

Answer by  computerguy (36)

Use an image editor, such as Photoshop, Paint Shop, or countless others to reduce the dpi to 72 and shrink the resolution to something reasonable, such as 400 x 400 or so. If a camera is your source, you can adjust your camera to less megapixels.

There are many online image editors that can adjust image size. You can also change image size in Paint in Windows OS or Preview in Mac OS.

Insert your image files in a powerpoint slide (microsoft powerpoint). Further save the slide as .jpg format. Your file size will be very small, Crop if required using picture manager.
