Resizemypicture.com allows you to resize a picture for free. Using the form above, you can make a picture bigger or smaller automatically, then you can download the resized image. Supported file formats are JPG, JPEG, GIF, and PNG. So, if you are looking for a quick, free way to resize your photo, look no further. Simply upload your picture to the box above, and you can shrink or enlarge the picture by selecting your desired options, then clicking "Click here to Resize". Once your file is resized, you can download it for use in your mySpace or Facebook profile.
For JPG images, you can also change the quality setting in order to reduce the image filesize. Some websites, especially forums where you will need to resize an avatar, have restrictions on the total size (in bytes) of the avatar. To decrease the size of the image file, you will need to lower the quality before resizing.
Please keep in mind that enlarging a small picture will most likely result in Pixelation, where the image looks jagged, blurry, or both. To eliminate pixelation, you will need a higher quality (higher resolution) picture to start with.
Our free photo resizer can easily be used by anyone, and we invite you to enlarge or shrink your pictures to make them bigger or smaller. Sometimes, pictures are too big for a web page or to send via email, and you will need to resize them to fit the proper dimensions. Our photo resize application above supports GIF, JPG, and PNG images and pictures.
Keep in mind that after you resize a picture or photo, it will only remain in our system for a few minutes. You will need to save the GIF, JPG, or PNG photo that you resized to your computer by clicking "Save to my computer". From there you can upload it to your favorite social networking site (myspace, facebook, etc) or you can email it to a friend now that its file size and dimensions have been resized to an email friendly format.

Resizing a photo has never been easier!
When to Resize a PictureSometimes, you need to resize your picture to fit in a given space, or to be sent through email without being bounced for being too large. You may also need to perform a picture resize if a forum or blog requires that your "avatar" picture be set to a certain height and width. Other times, it can be useful to resize a picture for a website rather than using the <img> tag's width and height attributes. If you use the <img> tag to scale an image, you may be using up bandwidth sending a large picture that is only going to be resized anyway. Resizing the picture to its final dimensions can also significantly decrease the amount of time it takes to download the picture, since the file size will be smaller.
