Image Resize Tutorial

 
 

Resizing image files such as photos is very useful due to the file size limits within many of the systems in use at FGCU, including FGCU email and the Canvas LMS. The high resolution photos taken by cameras and mobile devises tend to have a large file size. You may need to reduce the size of these photos, and other images, before using them in Word documents, PowerPoint Presentations, and PDF files that you intend to e-mail or upload into FGCU systems. It's also good practice to reduce the size of files and documents that will be shared with other for viewing on mobile devices to speed up sending and receiving.

The following tutorials cover basic steps in resizing an image file on both the Windows PC and Mac OS.
