    Would one of you kindly souls know how to do this please? I usually use MS Photo Editor but the computers in this cafe are circa 1985 so Paint is the only option. I´m trying to resize some stuff I want to post but am losing half of the image each time.

    To change the size of your picture
    On the Image menu, click Attributes.
    Under Units, click the unit of measurement you want to use for the width and height.
    Type the measurements in Width and Height.

    Notes

    You can also resize your picture by dragging the image resize handles, located at the lower-right corner and along the bottom and right sides of your picture. (You might need to maximize the window to see the square resize handles.)
    If your current picture is bigger than the new size, the picture is cut from the right side and bottom to fit within the smaller area. If your current picture is smaller than the new size, the extra area is filled with the selected background color.

    These are the ‘destructions’ within the Help section of Paint……..that’s about all I can do for you as I don’t use this program….I use Paint Shop Pro myself
