Hello
All I want to do is resize a .jpg image.

What is the easiest way to do this, w/o having Adobe or other major picture-modifying software?

Thanks

Hi Clifford,
IrfanView is excellent freeware that I've been using for many years:

Click the Download link on the left to download it and then run the file to install it. Then run IrfanView and open the JPG file. Then click the Image menu and Resize/Resample. You will get this dialog box:
IrfanView Resize-ResampleAs you can see, you'll be able to resize by setting the new size directly (width and height) or by setting it as a percentage of the current size. You may choose to preserve the aspect ratio or not. Regards, Joe
