IRFANVIEW - Basics GHI

Are you satisfied with your picture? I'm not with mine. I have a lot of white space around my pic that is doing just that taking up space not just in the pic but also in the size of the file. I'm going to crop mine down smaller. Here is how to crop.

We will make a box around the picture the same way we did for adding text but now it is around the picture fairly close to the 'good part' of the picture. (diagram G)


Now I am going to click the cut (the little scissors) my picture has disappeared. (diagram H)


Now I click paste (the little clipboard) and my picture is there and I don't have a lot of wasted space. (diagram I)


Now I save it as before.

There are a lot of other features you may want to play with but I won't go into all of those. You will find them under Image/effects. You can also use this program to help when using your scanner file/acquire will bring up your scanner software. Use that as normal and the picture will end up in IV where you can save it or play with it. You can even look at all the pics that are in one folder by pressing 't' on the keyboard or file/thumbnail now you can see what is in that folder. Double click on one of those pics and it will open up in the regular IV window. Under the drop down list there is also 'slideshow' you can play with that and have some fun also.
