    how to simply shrink a photo

    got some jpg photos that are too big for my phone, want to shrink the files to transfer, is there a simple way to do that? (gimp is not working/too complicated for me to comprehend)

    Fspot doesn't seem to have an option for this.

    Thanks for looking.

    imagemagick is probably the package you want. Then something like:
    Code:
    convert -resize 100x100 picture.jpg

    Hi karrank%.

    If you don't mind using the terminal, it is very easy:
    Code:
    convert  original.jpg -resize 640x480  new_shrink.jpg
    Regards.

    Ah, Gimp isn't so complicated as for the resize option:
    Just open the image, click on the resize:

    Do the resize and notice the values (X,Y):

    After the resize, give Ctrl+N to create a new image and give it the last values. Then Ctrl+C the resized image and Ctrl+V to the newly created image. Data! Save the image and you're done.

    Alternative, if you still don't like it:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install imagemagick
    convert input.png -resize 100x100 output.png

    Thanks, you folks are the greatest!

    Installed fotoxx while I was looking around and did a one-button resize which seemed to work--

    Will look into imagemagick soon.

    I downloaded two different image resizer into Nautilus using synaptic. But I do not remember which is which and I prefer one.

    nautilus-image-manipulator.
    It is highly inspired by Nautilus Image Converter:
    http://www.bitron.ch/software/nautil...-converter.php

    nautilus-image-converter
    This package adds a "Resize Images..." menu item to
    the context menu of all images. This opens a dialog
    where you set the desired image size and file name.

    SHOTWELL gives an option to RESIZE when you save as. has cropping tool, nice basic stuff

    what we need is IRFANVIEW for Linux

    I use irFanview in Ubuntu....just install wine/winetricks and then use winetricks to install atmlib, mfc42, msxml4, vcrun2005 & vcrun6. Without one or more of those windows add-ons, irfanview will not install.
