Default Picture Resize -Vista

Does anyone know how to resize pictures with the new Microsoft Vista. Just got a new computer and I am clueless. I have a bunch of E-dock picks to post.

Did you get a photo suite software with your digital camera? I haven't really played with Vista however, I'm pretty sure the concept is the same way as the previous versions of Microsoft Paint.

Open Paint by clicking the Start button, click All Programs, Accessories, and then click Paint.

Resizing images - On the toolbar menu, click image and click stretch/skew and just type in a horizontal and vertical percent number.

Microsoft Vista Paint

XP had a powertoy for resizing pictures. It was removed in Vista. The free replacement is VSO Image Resizer. It works much the same. Right click on the picture or a list of selected pictures and then slect the size you want. It works very well and the price is right.
