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

Recommended Posts

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 voilà:



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