Every time we share free printables, some of the most common questions we get are whether we have smaller sizes of the prints we share and how to resize large printables or pictures so they can be printed with a home printer on smaller paper. So before Greg shares the next set of free printables, I thought preparing a quick tutorial on this topic would be a great idea! And since every Windows computer comes with the free “Paint” app, I thought showing you how to easily resize pictures with the Paint app would be an even better idea 😉
So let’s go ahead and open the Paint app on our computers to get our pictures resized, shall we?
If you don’t know where to find the Paint app in your computer, just type “paint” into Windows Search, which is right next to the Start button, then click on the Paint app icon you’ll see within the search result.
Now that you have the Paint app open, follow the steps below to resize your pictures.
HOW TO RESIZE PICTURES IN 3 STEPS
Step-1: Open your picture using Paint app as shown in the pictures below.
Step-2: Resize your picture by entering the scale percentage as shown in the pictures below. If you’re scaling down our printables, you can get the scale percentage from the “Scale” chart you’ll find at the end of this post.
Step-3: Save your image, and you’re done!
You see? That was easy enough, wasn’t it? And as promised, here is the Scale Chart:
I hope this quick tutorial will help you resizing the large pictures so that you can print them on your home printer 🙂
