    Hi,

    Is there an aftermarket software that can help me change the resolution of the photo that I have taken? I have taken pictures with high resolution, but I won't be able to send them out using email. I need to find a third party software or to lower the resolution of the photo. Please help.

    Thanks

    iPhoto can do this. However, I use Kodak Easy Share, which has an awesome photo editing suite built it, and allows you to save photos in other resolutions.

    If you're using Apple Mail, it can resize the images for you automatically. Just select the size you want on the bottom of the window when creating a new message.

    How Do you Change It

    How do you change the resolution on Preview or IPhoto? Help, Help, Help and where do I find out what the DPI is?

    :confused:

    In iPhoto, when you click on the email button, you will get a choice of sizes to email. Just choose "small" and you should get what you want.

    As others have pointed out, there are tons of ways to do this, but if you're just resizing the images to email, just let Mail do the work. Once the images are attached, select a size from the popup menu that appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the compose window.

    True, Blue, and I normally use the email icon on iPhoto, but yesterday had to help a girl insert a photo into a job app for Airasia. The lowest setting on the iPhoto/Email was still 23kb but the application would only accept 15kb, which is how I discovered the other way and gave them 8kb....perfect :)

    Wow...I learn something new every day about my OS X.

    Question, rather than resizing a photo, is there a way to slim it down as to give me back HD space in a way that does not loose its quality or at least doesn't looks like its diminished?

    Simply fantastic and free!

    You MUST try Shrink-o-matic! You can set pixels, for example, it's pretty cool for a free app.

    What photo software doesn't allow you to adjust resolution?

    Preview is a powerful little app. You can even do light image editing, it has a lasso tool.

    No. You can either have small files, or you can have good-looking images. If small files are your thing, that's your own business, but you can never get back what you've thrown away.

    I thought the same thing as i read the question, that the only way was to CROP in iPhoto.
    But couldn't there be compression of repeating data for JPEGs etc?
