Recently, I was attempting to load an image to a web site, but the file was way too large so I received an error message. Of course, I then accessed one of my go-to tools for getting the job done: Scale Your Image. I have previously written about this awesome resource, but I thought I should bring back some tech-y!
So, whenever you need a quick and easy way to resize an image without having to use a full-size image editing tool like Gimp or Photoshop, then be sure to check out Scale Your Image. This free utility allows users to upload an image, specify the desired dimensions and then download the resized image. Scale Your Image also provides users with rotation and zooming tools as well as the option to save in one of three file formats: jpg, png and gif.
It’s that simple! Be sure to add this gem to your teacher techbox!
Use Scale Your Image when you (or your students) want to reduce the pixels and/or overall size of an image for print, email and/or use in web sites, wikis and blogs.
