I had this problem too, so I took my pictures from a greater distance and then cropped them down smaller.

Lydia, you have done such a great job getting people up to speed with the photo size changes and options for resizing. It's frustrating to have to make changes from what we've been doing for so long and you do a lovely job at explaining things. Kudos to you!

Where there's a will, there's a way, MelodyGal!!! We crafters are clever folks!

I downloaded Picasa, but after several tries I can't find a way to resize my photos! ACK! Can you give me a clue as to which buttons to click to change the pixels? I'm going to stop for awhile before I have a meltdown...

Okay Potpie you have such a cute username!!

Here are the instructions for Picasa:

Managing Your Pictures: Resize

Share
Comment Print

Use the Export tool in Picasa to resize your photos or to otherwise create copies of your photos with all edits applied. When you export a photo in Picasa, you're creating a new copy of that photo with control over both the image resolution (the height and width of the image measured in pixels) and the image quality (JPEG compression). The original photo on your hard drive is never altered. Follow these steps to export copies of your photos:
  1. Select the photos you'd like to export.
  2. Click the Export button in the Photo Tray.
  3. In the 'Export to Folder' window, select your export settings:
    • Choose an export location and enter a name for the exported folder.
    • Customize your exported image size and quality:
      • Image size options: You can choose between using the photo's original size or selecting a custom pixel size using the slider. The number of pixels you select with this slider determines the length or height of your photo (whichever is longer). The other dimension is determined automatically to maintain the aspect ratio of the photo.
      • Image quality: Select the desired image quality for your photo using the Image Quality drop-down menu
        • Automatic: Preserves the original image quality
        • Normal: Balances quality and size
        • Maximum: Preserves fine detail for large file sizes
        • Minimum: Yields some quality loss for small file sizes
        • Custom: Enables you to select your own value
    • You can choose to add a watermark to all of your exported photos.
  4. Click OK.
Your exported images are now saved on your hard drive in the location you specified. In Picasa, you can find these photos in the 'Exported Pictures' collection.


I will say again though - it's way easier to adjust your camera before shooting than it is to resize, but that's just me


It needs to be under 2048 pixels in EITHER direction to work - so remember that when using the Picasa resize option.

Thank you Lydia! I'm feeling much more confident now! I also think I may have found how to set my camera for future photos.

Yes, we are having some sort of database problem leftover from yesterday's issues - it's not you

It's still too early in Cali for our team to be in, but I've sent them a note.

I'm having to upload my cards as many as 4 times. I get the message that my card has been uploaded to my gallery.. Then nothing. I've tried with Chrome and IE.
Any I ideas or did I just make someone mad?

Well if you made someone mad it wasn't anyone at Splitcoast

Is your photo under 2000 pixels in both width and height? Also, are you a Fan Club member? Your photo may be awaiting approval... Let me know!

Yes, I am a member. The card is 480 X 500. It finally uploaded on the 5th try. First try was at 8AM then, about 4:30, then about every 1/2 hour.

Hmm. Well a few things - our system does delete duplicate entries with the same file name. So if your internet connection was just slow and the file uploaded, you didn't see it and you tried again, it definitely wouldn't have been successful.
