Using[edit | edit source]

The basic options of Resize-o-matic

When Resize-o-matic resizes images, it does not by default replace the original copy. It just saves another copy under a new name. For instance, if you resize foo.jpg you will have a new file named foo (Small).jpg.

  1. Select image(s)
  2. Select desired size
    • For the purpose of the web you almost surely want 640x480.
  3. Click Ok

Advanced Usage[edit | edit source]

Resize-O-Matic also supports a few "advanced" options. They aren't really all that advaned.

  1. Custom resizing dimensions
  2. Make pictures smaller but not larger
  3. Resize the original pictures (don't create copies!).
    • This is probably the most useful feature.
