How To Compress Photos In Picture Manager

  1. 1. Microsoft Picture Manager Written by Jacqui Sharp http://jacquisharp.blogspot.com http://sharpjacqui.blogspot.com
  2. 2. <ul><li>Go to Start – All Programmes – Microsoft Office – Microsoft Office Tools – Microsoft Office Picture Manager </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>If you have never opened MPM before just click OK on the next window (it is a dialogue window asking you what picture files you want to download) </li></ul><ul><li>If you can’t see any photos click on the + next to My Pictures </li></ul><ul><li>If you know that there are more pictures on your computer that are not showing up then click on Locate pictures in the Getting Started Menu </li></ul><ul><li>This should find all your photos for you and add them to the left hand side panel </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Click on a Photo. It will highlight in orange around the frame (or you might have to click on a folder then a photo) </li></ul><ul><li>Look down at the bottom left side of your screen, you will see the size of the photo you have selected </li></ul>This photo is the size of 3 and a half floppy disks. Far too big to have on a website or blog =
  5. 5. <ul><li>Double click the photo and the editing menu should appear on the right hand side of the screen (if it doesn’t click Edit Pictures on the Toolbar at the top of the screen ) </li></ul><ul><li>Click on Edit Pictures </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Click on Compress Pictures </li></ul><ul><li>Click on Documents </li></ul><ul><li>At the bottom of this dialogue box you will see Estimated total size, Original which is 3.44 MB and the compressed which is 541 KB </li></ul><ul><li>If you click on Web Pages the estimated size will be 103 KB </li></ul><ul><li>If you click on E-mail messages it is 13.2 KB ( way too small!) </li></ul>Click OK to select the option you want!
  7. 7. <ul><li>If you are using an online Photo Editing programme like FotoFlexer you wouldn’t want a photo any bigger than 500 KB because of the time it takes to upload and for the effects to take place </li></ul><ul><li>Blogger allows a maximum size of a huge 8 MB but over a slower connection a photo of that size would take forever </li></ul><ul><li>So the rule for a clear photo that will not take too long to upload or download is </li></ul>Yes it does!
  8. 8. <ul><li>You must save what you have done before you can you use it </li></ul>
