Need to prepare your photos or images for your website? You bet you do!
Episode 22 of Local Knowledge shows you how to edit the dimensions (pixel size) of your photo/image, crop your photo and also reduce the file size of your photo so your website loads faster.
You can use common photo editing software that comes with your camera or computer to do this but these programs often lack the ability to change file size, a critical component for web images. Not only that, PC and Mac software is often overly complex and expensive due to its myriad functionality.
One free solution to this problem is to use Picnik.com (not affiliated in any way with Local Knowledge). Picnik.com is easy to use and their free version gives you the ability to quickly change your photo/image dimensions, crop, and reduce file size.
