How do I resizie a photo without Cropping

Hi All,
Just download the 30 day trial of Aperture 2 to test it out. Recently new into photography, progressing on past point and click.
Want to post some photo's on a website to get feedback but they ask for photo's no bigger than 600x600 pxls.
If I have shot at 6mp and I am over 2000x2000pxls can I shrink the pick to 600 or below without cropping so I can get advise on the complete picture? If yes how do I do it.
Thanking you in advance.
Matt

Ernie is exactly right. Aperture always keeps your original high-res file untouched. You get a specific size by exporting a JPG or TIF. Along those line, I use the Zenfolio website for photos I shoot for clients. There is an Aperture plug-in for Zenfolio, which means I can export directly from Aperture to my Zenfolio website. No more making a folder of images on my desktop, uploading them and then deleting the folder. The photos go straight from Aperture to Zenfolio. There are export plug-ins for other photo websites as well, such as Flickr. Here is a link for more plug-in details:

    How can I resize an image without losing resolution or using the crop tool? I am using Photoshop Elements 13 on a PC.

    Hi Peru Bob,
    I've tried two images, the results were:
    Image 1
    Jpg, original file size 923KB, dimensions 848px x 279px.
    After resizing to 848px x 180px with 72dpi, the file size decreased to 164KB.
    Image 2
    Jpg, original file size 809KB, dimensions 1200px x 1800px.
    After resizing to 668px x 722px with 72dpi, the file size decreased to 307KB.
    So, there seems to be a fair file size loss - is this to be expected?

  • How does one resize a photo to the dimensions required by a contest?

    How does one resize a photo in aperture to the dimensions required by contest?

    Are you submitting a print or a file?
    You set the size of your print in the print dialog.
    You set the number of pixels (the unit of linear measurement of digital images is the pixel) for a file when you create that file by exporting an Image from your Library. You can specify a recommended number of Pixels per Inch by using the (mis-named) DPI field in the Image Export Preset you use when you export.
    The files you import have a height and width in pixels.  Height/width = the Aspect Ratio.  You can crop to any aspect ratio using Aperture's Crop tool.
    What are the specs required by the contest's sponsors?

  • In the slide show timeline, how do I select a photo to crop?

    In the slide show timeline, how do I select a photo to crop?  Sometimes it lets me do it and sometimes I can't select the photo to do it.  I'm not sure why the difference.

    It's version 3.4.2, the latest.  I can double click it, but then I'm out of the slideshow timeline and it's a hassle to quickly go back.  I have to click on another place in my library and then go back to the slideshow and find my place in the timeline where I was.  Many clicks.  I just want to edit (enlarge and move the photo) in the timeline. Sometimes it works, but sometimes I can't get it to. Not sure if there's a "sweet" spot to click on for the photo in the timeline or what that I'm missing at times.

    how do I resize attached photos in Mail Ver. 7.0 on iMac

    I don't think there's a setting in Mail to make this a default.  a ittle searching revealed an app that claims to do it.  Attachment Tamer is free to try before you buy to see if its worth it for you or if you just want to do it manually.

  • How can I remove the photos without deleting them from the album?

    I am making a book in Aperture 3.  I want to change some of the pages that I have put together, and want to remove some of the photos from some of the pages, to put them on another page.  How can I remove the photos without deleting them from the album?

    As a follow-up, I have found that clicking on the photo in the book also highlights the photo on the strip below.  So, if you then hit delete, you will delete the photo from both the book page and the album (which is the book, the way I have it set up).  If you only want to delete it from the book page, you then have to un-click the photo on the strip below, or both will be deleted.  This seems unwieldy.  I deleted 6 photos from a page and found all of them gone from the album.  The only way that I can see to keep them in the album is to then unselect them from the bottom strip after selecting them fro the page.  This seems to call for an extra step.

  • How can I resize a photo in iPhoto without cropping it?

    I am taking pictures on my iphone 4s and using iphoto to edit them on macbook pro.  I need to upload these photos at a size much smaller than what i am able to take with my phone.  The only way I see to adjust the size of a photo in iphoto is to crop it.  How can I resize without cropping?
    Thank you

    It's an option in the Export menu.
    File -> Export and under the Size option you can choose the maximum you prefer. Export that and upload from the desktop.

  • How do I resize a photo in iphoto and keep it in iphoto library

    So in windows I can resize a photo and leave it where it is.  Why can't I do this in iphoto?

    So in windows I can resize a photo and leave it where it is.  Why can't I do this in iphoto?
    iPhoto - either on your Mac or on IOS devices, is designed as an application with a lossless workflow. All adjustments and edits are guaranteed to be reversible. You will always be able to revert to the original  image. And that would be impossible, if iPhoto allowed you to clandestinely exchange the image file in the place where the photo is stored. iPhoto would not know how to undo the changes you did without using iPhoto to do them. If you do not need a digigal assets management program with a lossless workflow, don't use iPhoto - then you'd be better off with something like Picasa.

  • How can I upload multiple photos without using an app?

    I'm a special education teacher, and I teach a photography lab that teaches students how to scan and edit photos. We use the school's set of Ipad2's in order to crop the photos since the majority of students I have don't have the hand eye coordination neccisary to crop using a desktop computer and mouse. The problem I'm running into, however, is that our IT department wont let me download any apps onto the iPads. I've asked on six seperate occasions in order for them to update the iPads to ios7 and to give teachers the permission to install apps-- the first request coming at the start of the school year-- and they havent responded to any of them, so I'm not holding my breath.
    Currently, I'm uploading all of the photos my students scan to my personal dropbox account, and the students access that and download each photo individually onto their ipads. Not the easiest thing for special education students to do, but its doable. I have not found an easy way to get the cropped photos off the ipads, however. Any ideas? I could attach each photo to an email, allthough thats more trouble than its worth most times. Dropbox will only allow me to upload one photo at a time, and keeps overwriting the photo I previously uploaded with the new one if I try to upload a second photo. Photo stream is the obvious answer, but icloud is disabled on all the ipads and only IT can turn it back on, something they've been unwiling to do

    I worked in IT on the university level for four years so it's really frustrating to see more safeguards in place in a public school district any university. If we're trying to teach these kids to be ready for real life and then block out and don't let them use half the technology they're going to encounter in real life, well I just don't get that. But that's another rant for another time.
    How I do it is I save all of the photos my students scan onto my external hard drive, then transfer them to my personal computer and upload them to dropbox using Dropbox for windows (or whatever the desktop application is called) . I then have my students go to dropbox.com on the iPad, login as me, and go through each photo, saving each to the iPad as they go.
    I should have said upfront that when I try to connect the iPad to my personal computer it charges the iPad but won't recognize under my computer or show up in iTunes, so I am unable to see any of the data on it. I'm pretty sure it's not the 30 pin connector that's malfunctioning because I've tried with two of them. I can only check if it registers with iTunes on my personal computer because I can't download iTunes on school computers since I don't have administrator privileges

  • How can I find duplicate photos without going through all 5000  one at a time?

    How can I find duplicate photos withough going through all 5000 one by one?  I have numerous duplications and used to be able to click on Edit and Find Duplicates and could clean up all the duplicates easily.  Now that option is gone.  I still have lots to delete.

    I do backup everything using Carbonite.Please don't tell me it is bad, too :-)  Also, especially with photo files, I do have other backups of those I am concerned about. Probably not the best in the world, but a log better than many people who I know about.
    Again, I really have not seen any problems with MacKeeper.  I imagine that if people do not read and follow instructions, they could have problems. For example, it is possible to scan all your files and see them in order of size. If you start deleting things, without knowing what you're deleting, you could cause trouble. Even when the computer scans for so-called junk files, you can look at them and decide for yourself if they are truly junk. I've never seen any that were not.
    So, I will look at the complaints anyway to see them. I am open to change, although I hope I do not need to drop Mackeeper as it does things like keeping tracking of applications updates that I need. Please note that I definitely am not a MacKeeper employee or anything close. Just using it and happy with the the results.
    I did download the recommend file for finding photo dupes and ran it.  There were very few duplicates, in any case, As I said before, the MacKeeper dupe finder was very slow when I ran it over ALL my files. That was a year ago and it did find many non-text dupes.

  • How do I resize vertical photos for iMovie?

    The online support says "constrain to HD" but when I do that, it just cuts off the top and bottom of photo - how do I resize it to keep the whole photo, just "shrink" it?

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions.
    Double-click on the photo in the iMovie project to open its settings, and check if Ken Burns is selected. Turn it off and make sure the size slider is set all the way to the left. iMovie should display the entire photo with black bars at the sides.
    Regards.

  • How to Move Easily move photos without losing any changes

    Hi,
    I've built up a large number of photos in Lightroom which include cropping information, WB and color adjustments, ratings, etc. I currently have the photos stored in individual folders underneath C:\Users\profile\Desktop\Photos, and would now like to relocate ALL photos to the default path for Vista "C:\Users\profile\Pictures."
    How can I do this without losing any of my edits, ratings, etc.? Will I be able to move all of the folders at once, or will I need to handle them folder by folder?
    Thank You for any help ca ncan give newbie!

    Bradley,
    Leaving the catalog on the laptop and keeping your originals on an external drive is definitely the way to setup LR. I would go even one further, and use a small USB drive for the catalog, and a different SET of drives for your originals.
    The lrcat file in itself is relatively small, but the preview folder can be really huge, taking up a huge amount of space on your drive (many gigabytes).
    By keeping your catalog on a removable drive, it makes it very easy to use the catalog on more than one system by just plugging in the drive, and maybe 'finding' the folders again if necessary.

  • ¿How can I edit a Photo without mask and remain without mask?, ¿How can I edit a Photo without mask and remain without mask?

    I want to edit an .png or .jpg image which has no mask and, once edited, that image could remain without mask.
    ¿Is it possible to do this with iPhoto and how?
    Thanks and regards.

    iPhoto has no layering or masking. For that kind of work use an external editor:
    In order of price here are some suggestions:
    Seashore (free)
    The Gimp (free)
    Graphic Coverter ($45 approx)
    Acorn ($50 approx)
    Pixelmator ($50 approx)
    Photoshop Elements ($75 approx)
    There are many, many other options. Search on MacUpdate or the App Store.
    You can set Photoshop (or any image editor) as an external editor in iPhoto. (Preferences -> General -> Edit Photo: Choose from the Drop Down Menu.) This way, when you double click a pic to edit in iPhoto it will open automatically in Photoshop or your Image Editor, and when you save it it's sent back to iPhoto automatically. This is the only way that edits made in another application will be displayed in iPhoto.
