Easy Picture Resizing Online

Resized using ShrinkPictures.com

I've published an earlier post about one of the sizing issues important to digital photographers: shrinking the original picture to a size small enough for emailing or posting to Facebook or Flickr (or other online viewing sites). (See How Many Pixels Are Enough?) Lots of people who shoot digital pictures don't know how to use photo editing software to accomplish this. And, frankly, sometimes the steps are not that easy to understand or accomplish.

Today, Alyson Stanfield, Art Biz Coach, has posted two links to online picture resizing services. I've checked them out and they are definitely easy to use. Try either Resize Your Image or Shrink Pictures for a simple way to make email or social networking copies of your favorite photos! Your email recipients will be grateful!
