How to Get 600x600 Pixel Pictures

Pictures from cameras or cellphones often come in high resolutions. When they are transferred to computers, they take up large disk spaces and are harder to upload to social networking sites or send to emails. Resizing a picture is often done so that pictures are easier to share online. Be mindful of the picture's aspect ratio when resizing, which is the ratio between the length and the width. Unless it is resized in proportion, a picture might appear stretched or condensed, depending on the resolution.
