How do I reduce the size of images for hubs.

    In my latest hubs I am using images that pixilate badly because they are published larger than the source. How can I reduce the size of the picture in the module. In Squidoo you could add pictures to the sides of modules and they never distorted.

      picmonkey.com is a free photo editing site that has a resizing section for photos.  There also is a section that allows you to sharpen photos.  However, the photos need to be of good quality to start with, or editing them will not work well.

    Thanks, but that may not help as the pics are of good quality but the detail was taken from images in rock art, etc. I will try it anyway.

      You can sharpen the photos with that program and in most cases should not lose details.

    Does anyone know how big pics are to be before uploading to hub. I can't find a help section for this and my lens is unpublished because of the disproportionate pixels.

      Not to worry. I figured it out.

      Thanks everyone for the advice. I have worked out how to do it now and I don't need to resize them. My main problem was embedding them in the text and that has now been done as the tool is already there to work with. .

    You could get a free photo editing program and edit the photos and upload them. And there isn't a particular size they take into uploading, but they could be resized a bit if they are too big,

      Matthew said in another thread a few days ago when I asked, that it was unnecessary to resize your images here as they are done automatically on upload..  If the images are pixelated, it is because they are of poor quality not good quality
