Need to add an image to your website, but it's too big? This tutorial will walk you through the steps of cropping an image using the program called Paint, which is automatically installed on Windows computers. You can view the tutorial for the Macintosh program called Preview here. A common use case would be uploading banners to the announcement content type, which require that images be 1180px x 346px.
Step 1: Navigate to the Paint Program
You can find the Paint program in the Start menu. Click on the start menu - if the Paint program is not listed immediately, click on All Programs - Accessories - Paint. This is what the Paint icon looks like:
Step 2: Select Image to Resize
Once you've opened the Paint program, go to File - Open in the menu bar.
A browser window will pop up that allows you to locate the image that you wish to resize.
Select the image and click "Open".
Step 3: Resize Image
When your image is open in the Paint window, go to the menu bar and select resize.
A "Resize and Skew" box will pop up on your image, allowing you to adjust the size. You can choose to change the size by percent or by pixels.
Once you've adjusted to image, click "OK". You can now save the image with the adjusted size.
That is all there is to resizing an image!
