How to re-size multiple images before uploading to gallery
When adding a gallery to your website, it’s important that you don’t upload images that exceed a resolution of 1024x768.
Here are a few reasons why it’s not recommended
- Wastes Bandwidth.
- Not all monitors support high resolution images.
- Affects site speed for visitors that have slow internet connection.
The below tutorial will explain how to re-size multiple images for your gallery. Please note that this can also be done in Microsoft Paint, but for this tutorial lets say you have quite a few images to re-size.
* Step 1
Download a program called adionSoft Fast Image Resizer from the following link Download
* Step 2
Install Fast Image Resizer and open it up, you should see something similar to this.
* Step 3
Now that its installed, you do have the option to customize where you would like re-sized images stored and what quality you would like the re-sized images in. In this tutorial I left it to use the default options.
* Step 4
Specify the resolution (recommend 1024x768) and drag all the images you want to re-size into the block where it says Drop files here.
* Step 5
Once all the images are re-sized, you should see the word Done as seen below. Please note that the re-sized images will be placed in sub-folder called resized where the original images stored if you have not changed any options.
