  1. Shrink not crop image

    I have some jpg files that are full page. Without zooming or cropping, how can I shrink the picture and save so I can still see the whole thing but only take up part of the page

    What paint program are you using? Usually you can just drag a box around the whole thing, move your cursor to the exact corner, when there's a diagonal line with arrows at either end, then just flip it around to your liking.

    For future reference I suggest Irfanview. It is a good program

    Check it out if you want, you can resize pictures very easy
