How to resize an image using Paint and/or how to change the file extension (format)

MS Paint is just one application that may be used to resize a file or to change the file format. It is a Microsoft product and not supported by ParishSOFT. As a courtesy, we are providing the following information. The screenshots may not match your version of Paint.

  1. Right click on the image file in the File Explorer, select Open With → Paint. Or, open Paint and use File → Browse → Open the image. If your issue is the file format, go to step 4.
  2. Select main menu item Resize or Image → Stretch/Skew ... 
  3. Change the Horizontal and Vertical percentages to a percentage less than 100. Keep the percentages equal to preserve the aspect ratio. (This will happen automatically if you have the Maintain aspect ratio checked.
     
  4. Select the main menu item File → Save As to save the resized image or to save the image in a new format. Make sure you save the file as one of the following formats: .jpg, .gif, .png, or .bmp
  5. You may now add the photo to the family record in Family Suite.
