If you take pictures with a digital camera, you're familiar with the large size for each image after it is removed from the camera's memory card. If you want to print the pictures, you need to resize them before you send it to the printer. Windows comes with an application called Paint. Paint is a simple image manipulation application that allows you to resize your pictures


Step 1

Load Paint by clicking the Start menu, then going to All Programs, followed by Accessories. Load the image you want to edit by clicking File, then Open.
