Dear Chris & Jim,

I am familiar with exporting photos by Picasa 3 to downsize them.

I cannot recall how to make the smallest size, thumbnail size, that is close to 10 KB.

I tried to export but they are still in 50 KB.

Please advise. Many thanks. 

Happy Chinese New Year!

In Picasa, export is the only tool you have. I don’t think it works with pictures that small … period.

Do you have windows? If so, the built in Photos app can open a photo, click the 3-dot menu in upper right and choose Resize. There’s a built in size for thumbnails. Give it a shot.

Personally, I would use Snagit from Techsmith to resize. 

A free image editor that can do resizing is Irfanview.
