Thread: Resizing image question for slide show on computer

  1. #1

    Default Resizing image question for slide show on computer

    I shot my images at 8MP but obviously they are too large for a slide show that I wish to do on the computer.

    I found a dimension of 1526 x 1024 at 96 ppi resolution by downsizing the image is sufficient for a full screen display. But the size of each image is like 0.5 MB at jpg 8 (High) Quality.

    Any way for me to reduce the dimension further without affecting the image quality or full screen size?

    Thanks!

    I think 1024 x 768 should be ok

    I recently did a photo slide show for my own wedding using Microsoft's photostory (FOC on MS website) and found no need to reduce the size further. I think i set it at 2400*1800 pixels or abt 2mb each! However, the final output file is only 13.2mb for abt 40pics.

    it depends on the set resolution of your screen, there is no point having images bigger that your screen, it only slows down the slideshow

    Exclamation Yes!

    Set to 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600dpi, save for web.

    For slideshows, if using photoshop, I would use Automate>Fit Image>1024 x 768
    Save as quality 9 (for good viewing quality)

    Just use Irfanview to batch resize all your images to 1024x768 or 1280x1024. That should suffice for most purposes.
