How to resize a photo
Sometimes an image has to be resized in order to meet website requirements, or if you want pictures to be as close to perfect as possible.

Download the Windows or Mac version of the program and read our easy guide to learn how to resize an image using Movavi’s fast editor app.
The most common reasons to use photo resizer software
Posting images on websites
Optimize your visual content for social media websites and other platforms. Make the best impression with your Twitter profile photo, Facebook cover, YouTube banner, or Instagram photo thumbnails.
File size restrictions
Follow the image guidelines, so that the size of the file you want to upload to a website is small enough. Make sure your pictures are less than the stated maximum size in MB or KB.
Resize images if you want to print your entire photo.
Lack of hard drive space
HD photos eat up lots of space on your hard drive. To solve the problem and reduce image sizes, use a photo-resizing tool.
Step 1. Install Movavi Photo Editor
To install Movavi’s image resizer, download the installation file, launch it, and follow the on-screen instructions.
Step 2. Upload images to the program
To open the pics you want to resize, click the Open Files or Folders button or simply drag and drop images and folders onto the working area.
Step 3. Save copies of photos (optional)
Note that the originals are automatically overwritten after you apply changes. We recommend you save copies of original images before making changes to them.
Step 4. Resize photos
To downsize and enlarge a digital photo, click the Size tool.
Pick the desired size from presets; go to Preset sizes to see more options. To set a custom size, enter the appropriate settings in the Width and Height boxes. Specify the size in pixels, percentages, inches, or centimeters. The Keep aspect ratio option, enabled by default, lets you maintain the aspect ratio of images when scaling. Once you’ve adjusted the settings, click Apply.
Now you know that image resizing can be quick and simple.
