Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Just Resize It!

July22

Do you ever need to quickly and easily resize or compress an image? Then here’s the perfect solution for you!

Resize Your Image, is not a new web resource, but it’s definitely a very simple and useful one that should be added to your tech toolbox.

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 Resize Your Image. This utility allows users to upload an image, specify the desired dimensions and then download the resized image. Resize 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.

Not only does Resize Your Image allow users to modify the size of an image (in pixels), the tool also reduces the size of the actual file itself.

Classroom Connection:

Use Resize 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.

My students and I love, love this tool! We utilize it frequently when preparing pictures for upload on our online school newspaper site. Be sure to check out The B-A BluePrint sometime!
