1. You could paste it into Word
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 03:06 AM by greyl
and resize there, for one thing. (if you have a pc)

edit: and then print the word document from there too...

4. For printing you probably want it at the higher resolution.
Open it in a paint program instead of OutbreakExpress, make sure it'll fit on a page, then print it.

5. I would use a paint program
Depending on what Paint program your computer has, you should able to "Sketch/Skew" the image to the desired size.

9. If that's what you used for your current sig line
I don't like the way it re-samples. You can really see the pixels. Maybe there's a way to set it to use bi-cubic instead of nearest neighbor as its re-sampling method?

11. Irfanview

I've got a dozen or so graphics programs, but my favorite for viewing, resizing, thumbnails, changing formats, and other quick stuff is Irfanview. It's small and easy, but does amazing things. And it's free.

and Serif and photoshop..and I still liked Corel Photo House the best, but my new computer would not "accept" it :(..

So I have all the tools, but they are too complicated for me to use :(

14. Another vote here for irfanview
I use it for all my pictures.

It amuses me that one of the icons you can use for it on the desktop is a woman in a bikini. Guess he knows what sort of pictures a lot of computer users are looking at... :-)
