Default UPdate! Cropping Images.

Up late we are seeing images which are scanned, uploaded and looks like following. (No offense to fellow bhpian Wasif)
Help with Resizing, Rotating and Cropping images - The easiest way-wasif-crop.jpg

Those unwanted white spaces looks ugly. What we need is to crop the images for the area what we need and then upload it. That way the thread looks much cleaner and aesthetically appealing.

Tools we will use.
I will post how to crop using two of the most common tools everybody knows about.
1. Picasa, one of many odd google products.
2. Irfanview, A brilliant image viewer create by a Bosnian bloke named Irfan Skiljan.

First we will be using Picasa.
1. Open the File in Picasa.
Name:  1 opena.jpg
Views: 314
Size:  69.9 KB

2. Right Click on the image and click "Edit in Picasa"
Name:  1 openb.jpg
Views: 342
Size:  34.6 KB

3. On the Basic Fixes Tab, Click Crop, Select the area you want and click Apply.

4. From the "File Menu" > Click "Save As.." and save it with a new name. (This is important in Picasa)

Now same process using IrfanView.
1. Open IrfanView

2. From File Menu open the file that you wish to Crop

3. Select the Area with the mouse.

4. From the Edit MenuClick Crop Selection or Press Ctrl + Y

5. Save the File.

Walla!!

Application Links:
1. Irfanview
Download IrfanView

2. Picasa
Picasa 3: Free download from Google

3. Xnview, one more great application that is free and similar to Irfanview.
XnView Software - Free graphic and photo viewer, converter, organizer

I can say a quicker way to decreace the size of the image , No need of tools.

Just upload the picture to orkut , then open the picture copy it , the copied picture from the orkut will be very less in size.

If you do not want the photo in orkut we can delete it easily , or you can turn off the updates.

how does that work , have any one tried this way ?

why waste bandwith and time by uploading pics twice..once in orkut and then again in say, tbhp. i would rather recommend using Irfan view's batch conversion tool. Its fast and versatile.

To add to it Xnview gives lossless image conversion which many windows tool dont provide for. I had been using Irfanview for over a decade now and moved over to Xnview few years back as Irfanview was not lossless complaint then.

Thanks a lot Sir.
It has solved my problem of re-sizing the pictures and helped me a lot in posting my travelogues.

This is very useful - many thanks. I have come across some instances where the image is correctly aligned when I see it on my computer but shows up mis-aligned when I upload to a t-bhp post. I recently faced this on an assembly line thread that I'm working on.

Any tips on how to get around this issue? Is there also a way that you can edit / rotate a pic within a draft post on T-BHP?

Thanks
