Have a PICNIK with your IMAGES
Today, while working with a teacher on Blackboard, we needed to resize an image quickly. We saved the image from Blackboard, then went to the free online image editing site, Picnik (http://www.picnik.com).
We uploaded the image, clicked on the resize button, and changed the width size from 640 to 230 (which automatically changed the height to keep the proportions of the image since we left the check mark in front of "keep proportions.") We then clicked on the SAVE & SHARE tab, changed the name and saved the new image to the computer we were working on. We deleted the old image in the Banner section of Blackboard, and uploaded the new resized image. The whole resizing, uploading and downloading took about 2 minutes.
PICNIK is a great site to fix red-eye, rotate, crop, sharpen, change color and add special effects. You can become a member of Picnik for free, and save images on the site for future use if desired.
