When you are building a website, there will be times when you need to make a picture bigger or smaller. In this tutorial we will show you how to re-size an image using Paint, which is an image editing program that is included on all Windows computers.

In my tests I am using Windows 7

Resizing an Image:

    The Resize and Skew window will pop-up, and present several options. I recommend checking the box for Maintain aspect ratio, then click whether you want to resize based percentage or pixels.
    selecting settings
    Enter the new size in pixels, or what percentage increase or decrease you want on the picture, then click the OK button. The picture will then be modified as per your settings, you can then save the updated picture. In my tests I increased the image by 200%.
