Title: How to resize photos and remove EXIF data
Post by: Walkerholic on August 31, 2015, 05:19:25 AM
It was mandatory at one point at Starszz to resize all our photos and this is a tutorial that will make things a lot easier.

1) Download FastStone's Photo Resizer (http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm).
2) Install the software

As it is pretty straight forward, I will only explain how to remove EXIF data and get the correct settings for resizing.

5) Then click on advanced options pretty much below Settings and Browse.
6) Copy the settings from the screenshot posted below and click on OK.

The rest is pretty much optional. You're able to save the options you've selected above and load them in after you did a clean installation. You're also able to watermark images and it'll save you KBs as Coppermine's watermark function takes up a bunch of MBs.
- You're able to rename images in a batch
- You're able to keep the original data from the photos

You're able to do a lot with this program and it'll save up a LOT of time if you're resizing or even renaming your photos. :)
