Hello all, I do hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and are looking forward to Christmas. anyway, I need to change the size of some digital scrapbook images just alittle bit bigger to fit a tri-shutter card I am making. I cannot find anything easy and I don't have photoshop! Its just too expensive and It's too complicated for what I want to do. Isnt there a free place I can go or download that I can just drag a corner of the image to make it bigger or smaller. Or something like that? Desperate!!! Thank you hope to hear from someone soon with any info.

I use an older version of Microsoft Word for resizing and printing all my images, with standard size (8 1/2 x 11) photo paper. Several photos can be fitted on a single sheet.

You select Insert from the menu, then Picture and From file. Navigate to the folder where you store your image and select it. Paste it into the Word document. You can then resize the image to make it bigger or smaller. From the picture toolbar, you can also crop the image.

I use paint,,,,,,,

simply cut and paste the image into paint or open the image in paint,,,,,,

go to file on the top left,,,,,,

go down to page set up and click there,,,,,

it will show you how big the file is,,,,,,

change the percentage as needed to make it larger or smaller.

click ok

and then print it.

picmonkey.com is free and you can crop and resize, plus a ton of other features like adding a dark edge or borders and fixing red eye, smoothing wrinkles, etc. I love that site!

I like Picmonkey as well. Very user friendly.

There is picmonkey and picassa as well. picassa is from google and really user friendly. If you ever decide that you want photoshop you can purchase photoshop elements for a fraction of the cost of photoshop and a lot of digital scrapbookers use photoshop elements. It is user friendly and makes life easier when you are editing pictures.

HI there
Happy thanksgiving again.I have encountered a similar problem with you.I tried to resize the image using this code:
namespace RE__Test
{
public partial class Form1 : Form
{
public Form1()
{
InitializeComponent();
}

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
string fileName = "c:/Sample.png";

REImage reImage = REFile.OpenImageFile(fileName);

Image Processing .ApplyResize(reImage, 500, 500);

REFile.SaveImageFile(reImage, "c:/reimage.png", new PNGEncoder());
But it displays nothing.What's wrong with my code?Thanks for any suggestion.
