How Do I Resize Photos in Apple’s Photo App?

Great Question:
The only app I have on my computer is the “Photos”.  I don’t have any apps that will allow me to size and save images. Would that app work or are there other apps you would recommend?

 

Answer:

Hi,
You should be able to file size in Photos.  Here are the steps you can follow:
  1. Highlight the photo(s) you want to export
  2. Go to File > Export > Export [#} Photos
  3. In the new window, click the downward facing carrot to the far right of Photo Kind
  4. Then in the expanded window, fill out your selections as below (You won’t be able to choose 72 PPI, but that will be OK.)Apple's Photos File Sizing Window
  5. ​Click the Export button
Let me know if this does not make sense.
Otherwise, you can download, install, and use GIMP (Links to an external site.) for free.
Hope this helps,
