    Hello all,

    I have a jpg file that is 5146 x 1872 pixels. I'd like to reduce it to a maximum of 1920 x 1080 pixels. How can I do this on my Mac?

    I mean, can I retain the view of the photo (without cropping it) and reduce the resolution? I guess this would involve merging pixels to reduce the pixel count while preserving the "content" or "view" if not the "information" (pixel and resolution information).

    I can't figure out how to do it in Preview or Photos....

    I figure this is a question for a photography web site but I thought I'd start here as Mac is the premier multimedia platform.

    Many thanks,

    Preview will do what you want. Click on resize in the Tools menu.

    Ah, thank you, Weaselboy. That was easy. Embarrassing that I didn't look carefully enough at the Tools menu.
