Hello everyone and welcome to Shawn's Tutorials!

Being very active over at Street Articles I am constantly asked how to re size pictures. I have written over 130 articles there and have had to re size pictures constantly.

I have used the paint program for doing this for banners and pictures. Today I will walk you through re sizing pictures so they will be accepted at SA.

Paint programs are a bit different from one version of windows to the next, but they all work pretty much in the same way. I am using windows 7 for this training.

So lets get started!

I am assuming you have already downloaded your picture to your computer and are ready to re size it, so go ahead and open your paint program.

Up in the left corner you will see an arrow pointing down.



Click the arrow and a drop down menu will appear.

Choose open from the drop down menu and the following screen will appear.

how do you increase picture size without distorting, having a real problem with social media and picture size

It is hard to enlarge images without that happening.

Yes, that is blurry. I would have a custom header made for this at those specs rather than trying to re size one.
I had mine made at: https://www.fiverr.com/

This is great, I didn't know you could do that with the Paint program or that you had a tutorial on this.
