I didn't realize I had this new camera set at 4608x3456. Images are much too large to upload. 

 

Any recommendations on the best way to reduce them the size?  They are all jpg.

My favorite resizer is FastStone Image Viewer, it's a free download.

I'm a Linux user.  I have Gimp. Hoping for something simple.   I will try Faststone with Wine.

 

Thanks guys.

Does Gimp not have the ability to export and resize at the same time?

I believe it does.  It's a Photoshop kind of program only free.  You can import, resize, and save in different formats.  It's a little more than I think I need. Faststone works well and is easy enough.

 

I'm also looking for some software to help me sort years worth of pictures.  Friends and I have always swapped CDs of photos on our adventures.   I'm currently trying to sort out all the photos that are not mine then put mine in folders by subject matter. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I been using IFRANVIEW since 1997!  Freeware program, will do batch jobs (like resizing, renaming, etc).  Even reads RAW (CRW and NEF) files, but I think you have to download the plugins (extras) for that.  Try it out.

I use xnview on x86. There is a multi-platform version for *nix but GIMP would be your best bet if you have it already.

Nikon CaptureNX-D would be my choice,

Very fast,

Free,

Will show all your picture controls like sharpening, contrast etc

 

When you get CNX-D open and the file you want open,

Attached File  1.jpg   121.56KB   0 downloads

Then you will get this box, just click on the file size you want here

all you have to do is enter the long edge and save, 

FWIW if you are shooting jpeg, maybe duplicate the file first

Attached File  2.jpg   229.27KB   0 downloads

You can duplicate in ViewNX-i here, just puts a second copy right alongside, (just to be sure to be sure!  :D )

Attached File  20150724__18099_ Gary Worrall_untitled shoot-Edit.jpg   103.05KB   0 downloads
