Windows 7: My files image size jumped from 950x599px to 1168x840px

My files image size jumped from 950x599px to 1168x840px

Hello all.

I've been making pages of information in my mspaint for then storing to files at a width and height of 950 x 599 pixels. I have hundreds of these files that I've created over a period of time.

Yesterday I noticed these files are now too big to fit into the mspaint window of 950 x 599 pixels when I want to do editing of them. Their Properties now has them as width 1168 x height 840 pixels.

How do I reduce all these files to size 950 x 599 pixels again without having to use a resizing app. for each of these hundreds of files?

Thank you

have these picture files been resized/stretched or do they now have blank margins taking them up to the new size?

Hello s b ii - I now suspect the fault was with me in that I had the mspaint window setting at 1168 x 840 pixels when I did my work on the pages - and sent them back to the fileswith the setting still being of those dimensions. I would 'frame' my mspaint pages with the broken lines rectangle before returning them to the files, thinking this was close to the size I actually wanted them to be : 950 x 599 pixels.

I've been using 'Snagit' to re-size the pages back to 950 x 599 px -- but unfortunately the text is rendered almost unreadable. I'll have to do the whole lot again.

Thank you for your interest.

you can use photoshop on resizing those images if you want to have a good pixel still on it.
