How to modify an image for free

Just use Preview! ThU5:-)

Open Preview (conveniently available in every Mac, no downloading/purchasing required).
Take your image/screen capture/etc. and store it anywhere you want.

In Preview:
  • Use the "Open..." to load the image.
  • Use the "Tools", "Adjust size..." menu and change any of the properties available in first image.
  • Use "Export..." and save in any of seven formats. I think most forums accept jpeg, but "OpenEXR" is also available. [lol]
There is no Step 4! [cheer]
I generally use ~800 pixels for maximum width to prevent horizontal scrolling. [banghead]
Note to file size decrease! Lower values makes up/downloading faster and uses less of Stu's server space. ThU5:-)
