How to minimize big size images taken with DSLR camera to small size

An easy way to minimize photos taken with DSLRs using Paint, Windows.

Often, photos taken with digital cameras have 5000+ kb. In these cases, they can take a lot of space on your hard drive. Sometimes it simply helps to resize those pictures. However, I don't always want to do that since I like big photos. Even though they have 6000+ kb. I recently took several hundreds of photographs while working in a youth camp during school holidays. These pictures took A LOT of space on my hard drive, but using a very simple method, I was able to reduce the space needed by almost three quarters without actually changing the size of the photograph.

Just open Paint, which every windows version should have pre-installed. Open the file you want to make smaller.
(In my example the photo has a size of ~4080 kb)

Open the editing panel:

Simply press Enter, without changing any settings. Eh voilĂ :

It was shrinked without being zipped, or actually changed. When opened, the photo still has the same measurements.
