So just simply open web browser and type in fotor.com and then just go down and click on the edit a photo button.
Now then you can just exit out of this little pop-up window here and all you want to do is just open up a photo by clicking on the Open button. Go to computer and then just grab the image that you want to resize.
So in this case this was that 4000 x 2666 image which you can see right there.
Whenever I hover over it so let’s grab that and then just go down to open and then you’ll see this little resize button down here.
It’s got a drop-down menu just click on that and then you’ll see the sizes right here. So if you leave this locked it will be a proportionate size. So if I wanted I could just type in 1900 and it will proportionally size with 1266 on the other side and then just click on the well it’s in the way but it got it and then just click on the apply button.
So now that image just resized and now all you have to do is just go up to the Save button and click on that and it’s gonna ask you to create an account. Honestly I just connect with Facebook or if you want you can make an account but it only takes about two seconds and they don’t span you with a bunch of emails and stuff which is pretty nice.
So I’m just gonna do connect with Facebook and then it’ll ask do I want to save it as a JPEG or a PNG. In this case I’m just going to keep it as JPEG and you can even rename the file so now you can even change the quality to normal or high but I’m gonna keep it as normal and then just click on download. So now that image just hit our downloads folder.
Now I’m going to show you how to optimize your images. So that they run fast on your website and it’s pretty simple. So to optimize your images I’m just gonna go up to my web browser search bar in a new tab and I’m gonna type in a website called optimizilla.com and it will redirect their new domain imagecompressor.com.
So this is Optimizilla, it’s super straightforward all you have to do is just click on the upload files button select the image that you want to optimize.
So let’s just say that we want to put this one on our website homepage and we want it to load a lot faster. So just click on the image and then just click on open so as you can see it’s compressing the image which basically means it’s making the file size smaller. So a little bit of compression you’ll never notice a drop in quality.
If you compress the image too much then you’ll start to get some pixelated looking photos so right here it compressed it by 55%. So if you wanted to compress it a little bit more you can just go down here and you can drag around your image and see what it’s doing so at 55% there is literally no difference in quality at least I can’t tell but if you wanted you could drop the quality down even more to say a 29 and this is going to make the image incredibly fast.
But as you can see we’re losing a little bit of quality here so I don’t recommend going that far. I’m gonna drag this back up to say a 55 so that’s pretty good so just click on the apply button and as you can see it’s recompressing and just like that it’s done.
So now just click on download and now that new photo just hit our downloads.
