Are you using a Windows 10 computer?
If so, you can
- open the photo in the native photos app
- Click the 3-dot menu in upper right
- Choose Small, or Medium
- Choose a location to save the resized photo
I chose Medium and it converted a 1.2MB picture into 250K
If you’re not using Windows 10, you could use a web-resizing service like https://bulkresizephotos.com/
Hope that helps.

You need to open the photo and make sure it is opening in “Photos” for Windows
To be sure – try this
- Click on the Windows icon in lower left
- In the alphabetical list of programs, scroll down to P – Photos and open that. This is what I call the Native photos app.
- Find the photo you want, if it’s not right at the top of the dated collection of photos, you may need to click on the “Folders”
- Double-click that photo
- You should now see 3 dots in the upper right – just below the X for closing the windos
Did that work for you?
