Hi jila5995,

Sitebuilder has a few simple editing tools, but not that much.  You would have to use some software that is designed specifically to edit images.  I don't know of one that definitely can do this, but there are many image editing packages out there to search for.

Thanks

Drew

Thanks Trevor,

I might take a look at that too.

You are welcome Drew.

While you are at it, might I suggest you look at this free download too: 

http://www.freeimageconverter.com/
I use this all the time to reduce image file sizes, without loss of quality on the website. It means files upload and work much faster with Homestead. It's really easy to use and I always keep two separate files for my images. One at the regular quality and a duplicate at the reduced file size, ready for use on my website. I'd be lost without it. I hope you find it useful too?

I will check it out.  For this I have always used Faststone Photo Resizer.  It allows me to tag entire folders and reduce the size in one batch.  Always happy to find options though.

You'll find this will do exactly that too. I'm sure there are a variety of choices but this one has never let me down. I guess we all stick with what we know and trust. That makes sense!

Well, I am never one to turn down an improved experience, so I will compare.
