I've just uploaded a photo to facebook from my macbook pro and the photo is much larger than I would like it


I've gone in to 'photos' and 'edit', but there is no option to re-size the photo... I can enhance it, crop it, adjust red eye...etc... but there is no option to make the photo smaller




Can someone please tell me how I can do this.... wife is complaining the photo is too big and I need to resizeit a.s.a.p.!

Load up iPhoto. (use the mag glass search on the top right of your screen to look for it). 


To resize a photo in iPhoto, select the photo or photos you want to adjust and click on the File button from from menu bar. Then choose Export or hit Command-Shift-E. In the Export window, choose the tab 'File Export', which lets you adjust the size of the image. Your options are small, medium, large, and full-size.




This should do it.




Edits: just wee small things :-)

Or just use the Open the photo (by default, opening an image file should open in Preview), go to Tools menu, then Adjust Size. You can then specify exact dimensions if you wish.
