I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could identify this recent find from the foreshore near Hamstead Isle of Wight for me please. To me it does not look like a Diplocynodon skull because of the smooth underside - more like some kind of frog perhaps......?? Apologies for the quality of the photos and if they are very large files - I do not know how to resize them !!!
I use Image Resizer (http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/), and have been doing so for over a year, no probs.
There are many out there, but I like this one because it allows custom pixel dimensions, and it remembers what you set. (Many fora require photos to be of a certain size, or up to a certain size, measured in pixels. So if posting often, remembering that custom setting can be very useful.)
Other features to look for in an image resizer:
- input format (all of JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF would be good)
- output format (JPEG is usually OK)
- compression ratio (so you can reduce the file size for any given pixel dimensions, though sacrificing some sharpness)
- colour depth (sometimes colour is not relevant (ed. pages of text from a book), in which case you should be able to reduce file size by almost 70% by saving as greyscale)
Many thanks for the information about how to re-size my photos - that will be very useful to me when sending email attachments to family in Aussie !!
Would anyone in the ID team (or forum) be able to give me an idea of what my find might be please? To me it looks like some kind of skull. Am I right or wrong !!
Kind regards to everyone
Hi, if you are on a Mac, the Preview application can be used to edit and resize images, and the Mail application provides options to select a range of sizes (small, medium, large, original size). You can also use the Automator app to create an app or droplet to automate the process.
If you are on Windows XP (in case Mike's version doesn't work on XP), you can download Image Resizer from Microsoft's website too: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/xp-downloads#2TC=powertoys
