I am quite an amateur when it comes to resizing digital photos, so I need some help please.I just hit my 500 post count and I am now able to add an avatar. I wanted to use a photo from my iPhoto library, but the photo seems to big for what is allowed by this site for an avatar.
I tried Exporting the photo and using various settings in iPhoto to make the photo smaller, but I keep getting "file upload failed", so I am guessing that it is not within the specified size for avatars.What is the easiest way to change the size of photos so that I can use them, not just on this website, but also the many other sites that require certain sizes for avatar uploading?
I participate in several forums where I often post pictures of things. But the photos have to normally be less than 100KB. I don't have any purchased photo editing software yet for my Mac, is there something in iPhoto or somewhere else that would allow me to resize a photo for posting? If there's nothing on my machine that will do it, does Aperture have such a function?
Progressing quite well with my conversion over to Mac - few teething problems sorted.
However, got one, quite a basic one that is doing my head in.
Most applications I can resize the window, however, on itunes, when it opens, the corner that you would normally use to resize is obscured by the tool bar thing along the bottom (sorry, cant recall the name, is it the dashboard?) anyway - have tried moving this dashboard, but still cant get to the corner I need - when you minimize, it just goes to a very small box.
I know its something very simple, but cant find the right thing to do.
Well I just switched over to Macs on sunday with a new MacBook. Coming from Windows XP theres two things I miss and I want to know if there are any applications to chnage this:
1) In OS X you can only resize windows from the bottom right corner which gets kind of annoying. In Windows XP you can resize from any corner including the sides with that little black adjuster arrow, is there any program or any way I can naturally do something similiar in OS X?
2) I want my Dock to be more like the Start Bar in Windows XP. Meaning that I want all my programs to stop at the Dock on the bottom. Some program automatically stop at the Dock and can't be pulled down behind the Dock, such as iPhoto. Other programs however, such as iTunes, can be pulled down behind the dock and I don't like that. Is there any way I can naturally change this or any application I can download?
i'm trying to use gimp on my new macbook and the toolbox window has moved into a position where the bottom corner is off the bottom of the screen. i therefore cannot resize it! i've been googleing everything i can think of but cannot find an answer on how to resize this (i have tried a few solutions which only seem to apply to regular osx apps). i am more than willing to set the window sizes in some sort of a config file, but i can't find one.
Maybe the text field you're typing in is a bit too small to read. Or maybe you just have a lot to say. Either way, Safari lets you resize text fields on any website, just by grabbing the corner of the field. Resize a field and the web page reflows to make room."
Can anyone actually get this to work? I've never seen a website, Apple's included, that let's you do this feature. Yet it's listed on Apple's webpage.
So I just installed PS CS4 as downloaded from Adobe's website. When I resize a window, the gray area in the background becomes totally corrupt. Doesn't affect the document itself but it's distracting. I tried turning off OpenGL drawing in the Preferences but that didn't help. I've not seen any visual corruption anywhere else in OS X but wonder if it's a problem with the ATI 3870 at all. Never saw anything like this with CS2 or CS3. It is OpenGL drawing. It wasn't obvious I had to restart Photoshop for it to take effect.
I'm trying to use my 500 GB external HD as solely a storage drive now whereas it used to be storage and backup, with separate partitions for each. I have deleted the backup partition (the first partition) successfully with Disk Utility, but how can I resize the remaining partition into the free space before it on the disk? I can't drag it or enter the desired size in the text box, it doesn't seem to want to get any larger. Is there any way to do this without purchasing ipartition? I have an old version from Tiger, but I'm not sure if that will work safely on leopard, and I do not want to lose my rather larger collection of ripped dvds on this external drive. Here's a screen shot of what i now see in disk utility.
Okay, I was working with iMovie and did something cool...but I don't know how I did it or how to repeat what I did.
I managed to make one "clip" which consists of 6 or 7 photos (imported from iPhoto)...and on top of (inside of?) that clip is the "far far away" title (the Star Wars one). I tried to do the same thing again, and couldn't figure out how I did it in the first place! Oops. Any clues would be great (I tried highlighting several pics and dragging them down to the timeline together...didn't work. I also tried a few other things, but no luck).
A few minutes ago I imported all my settings from my imac onto my macbook using the migration assistant, but now some of my windows in things like Safari and iTunes are too big for the screen, and the resize thing in the bottom right corner is too far down to reach it (not on the screen at all) ... And some of my iTunes Buttons are too far down to reach, anyone know of a way to fix this? its driving me insans!
Basic question, had a photo sent to me that I wanted to make a hard copy of but when I clicked on print only the top of one person's head appeared on the hard copy, I tried down sizing but all that happened was I got a smaller picture of the same person's head. Not sure what program I should use or exactly what I need to do to get a correct sized print.
Can this be done? I have a lot of pictures in iPhoto 08 that I want to reduce in size to 800x600 to fit on a SD card. I can resize them one at a time, but does anyone know of a way to resize many pictures at once? It would sure be a timesaver for me.
1. Put your dock on the bottom of the desktop, in auto-hide mode. 2. Open an app, say Safari. 3. Resize the window in order to get to the bottom of the screen. 4. Hide it (cmd H). 5. Restore it (alt tab). 6. Now the window has been resized on its bottom border by a few pixels (because of the dock position).
How do I avoid that ? I'd like to use all my pixels.
today after long saving I bought my first apple product An imAc 24" (awesome stuff )
My mom asked me to put Vista on it because she has trouble with OS X, when I used bootcamp to divide my HDD I took to much space for windows (like 450gb ) Only leaving me, the biggest user of this comp with 100gb on my OS X lol)
Any way to make the Windows partition smaller and add the extra free space to my OS X partition without erasing any thing?
My first Mac just arrived from FedEx. (2.4ghz mbp w/ high res antiglare)
I'm used to windows and trying to get used to OSX. One thing I just noticed is that I can only resize the window from the bottom right corner. In windows you can resize from any corner. I can't seem to find a setting to change this. Is there a way to do it or am I stuck only resizing from bottom right?
IMNSHO resizing windows only from the bottom right corner sucks big time. I'd like to be able to resize windows from any corner or side.
I'm wondering if there is a 3rd party solution to resizing windows in OS X? Any software that can do this?
I know this has been discussed many times here, but I couldn't find any solution. Let's not argue this time, if this is really needed. This is just something that I want. I'd be happy to pay few $, if that's the only way to get it, but free/open solutions are what I'd prefer.
I know there are already a ton of threads like this one out there, I was just getting a lot of conflicting data from them, and didn't really want to screw this up... Well here's the problem.My HDD is currently divided into two partitions, I am trying to shrink the 2nd partition, and expand the 1st without losing the data on my 2nd partition. Is this Possible?
I've tried VolumeWorks 1.5 from a bootable DVD but for some reason when I open it and select my hard drive, the left column where a list of my partitions should be is blank, and all the buttons on the bottom are blanked out except "close" and "rebuild".
I was going to try booting from CD and running disk utility to accomplish this, but most of the stuff I've read says that shrinking a partition with DU will erase the data. ?
Recently I decided it'd be fun to put together a movie and while I've slowly been getting used to IMovie HD (first time using it 'properly'), I still haven't been able to "master" it yet. I was wondering whether it's possible to resize some of the clips I have? Some of the clips are different sizes and my intention is to publish the movie on something like YouTube or similar. I don't know if YouTube does this automatically? I don't remember it like that.
I don't want to have varying sizes of the clips when I send it to my friends, either, so. Can I resize the clips so they're all the same size? Can I do that in iMovie HD, or anything else on my Mac? Or do I have to download another piece of software to do this? Also, I'm not looking to spend any money on a professional editing program so please bear that in mind. The movies are in Quicktime MPEG-4 format if that's helpful.
I have a 700 GB external HD with a 349 GB MacOSX Extended (Journaled) partition, and a 349 GB FAT32 Partition.
I need to shrink the FAT32 partition to make room for another smallish HFS+ partition so that I can back up my virtual machine (around 30 GB). My question is whether resizing the FAT32 partition in Disk Utility will harm the data in either of my existing partitions. I understand Leopard to have an on-the-fly partitioning ability, but I wasn't sure whether this applied only to certain file systems.
