How to resize Windows 10 screenshot for profile pic

Post by GoldenBeauty » Mon Oct 21, 2019 11:07 am

Ok so I'm not 100% sure if this is the right place to put my problem, but I've been having some trouble trying to convert MB to KiB for a Wolfquest forum profile picture. I've used Paint, but that really hasn't done anything? Please help, how do you guys resize screenshots??

Hey GB,

If you are using Paint as your program of choice, are you first using the Crop tool? You should first use Crop to remove parts of the screenshot that you don't want in your profile picture. Once you have a crop that you like, next use the Resize tool to scale your cropped image down to a pixel size that the forums like; in this case, 100 by 100 pixels max. The more of the original image you cut away, the more detail you will keep when you resize what is left over.

Paint's Resize tool is not very good however, at least it isn't in the 2007 version of the program. You lose a lot of detail when you resize. Especially with these large shots from the game!

If you are still having trouble, I would recommend trying a different program, like Microsoft Office Picture Manager. That one resizes images much nicer than Paint does.
