In digital photography, JPEG is the most common type of file in saving photos. You commonly see them in file name extensions such as .jpg, .jpeg, and .jpe. Many refer to it as a universal image format because it is the most used image file when sending e-mails or uploading them on the internet. Other than this, saving files in jpeg is also the most common method for “lossy” compression. Lossy compression in photo editing is the process of data encoding to resize jpeg image that exceeds 2MB or more, which are undeniably difficult to upload in e-mails, Facebook, Twitter, and Blogs.
Such tasks can be huge hassle especially when you trying to figure out how to resize jpeg images in Windows 7. Take note that downloadable tools may have the chance of not working with your windows 7 system. So before getting one, check your computer’s specs—its processor and operating system.
There are many ways on how to resize a jpeg file and one of the most popular methods is resaving the file using installed applications in Microsoft such as paint and Windows picture manager.
