    How can I resize my picture in Microsoft Paint, or do I need to download another program.

    Thank you,

    Just use Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Right-click the picture, click Open With, and select Microsoft Office Picture Manager. If the panel on the right side isn't open, in the menu bar, click Pictures and then click Resize. You'll be offered options in the right hand pane on resizing the graphic. I don't think you can do this in Paint.

    Just curious Professor, do you ever try to figure these things out on your own before posting here? The way I figured out how to work with graphics using the on board tools in Windows was to open a picture up in everything I have available and tried things out until I found a solution.

    EDIT: As for member who have answered sarcastically or who have been tempted to, I understand your feelings and share a measure of frustration, but giving the answer, being civil about it, and still being able to express your concerns doesn't take that much more effort.

    Peace, out.

    You make some text, like click here, select the text and click on the make hyperlink button in the toolbar at the top of the reply box and then insert the link.

    Easy really.:oops:

    By the way Prof, how about some feedback. Nobody knows if you have solved your problems from the other threads or if they are still happening. A little appreciation for the other members trying to help you wouldn't go astray either.

    If you are doing it by hand, you you encase the url in quotes within the opening tag, and your text between the tags. like below (but without the spaces):

    [ u r l = "www.google.com" ]Try Using this invaluable resource[ / u r l ]

    gives you Try Using this invaluable resource

    Its the same with quotes

    [q u o t e = "Ffreeloader" ]Waaa! Waaa! Waaa![ / q u o t e]

    Gives you

    Quotes are not real quotes from specified people

    Ok assuming this is a genuine question by a newbie...

    Open Paint by Start Menu -> Run

    Type mspaint, hit return.

    Use File -> Open to open the image.

    Images can be cropped by using Image -> Attributes.

    First use the select tool (dotted square rectangle tool).

    Cut the area you want. Ctrl-X

    Then use File -> New to create new image.

    Alter images attributes to something like one pixel by one pixel.

    Paste cut image. Ctrl-V. At this point image dimensions will be expanded to meet cut region.

    This allows you to crop an arbitary image region.

    It does not scale or stretch etc.

    There is a stretch skew option as well.

    Paints good for one off very basic tasks, if you have a lot of stuff to do there are much better tools out there.

    I'd also be concerned that you could not figure this out yourself, it does not bode well for a career in IT !
