We use picresize.com. Pretty simple and straight forward.

Sometimes I'm slow.

When using MS Paint I recently figured out an easy way to check whether a photo will post. Open the picture, select re-size, click the Pixels option. Under 900 seems to be fine for posting. I find pictures around 400 - 500 are decent size when posted.

Apologies if the above was covered earlier.

Paint 3D vs old Paint... I lead an old Dan. I'm not up to speed with Paint 3D. Every time Windows updates they seem to hide Paint on me. It is still found in accessories. Once used, it stays with the top list... until the next upgrade.

As mentioned above, i'm also a fan of the "old" Paint.

As part of my most recent Win10 update, there was a message saying that the *next* update would *remove* Paint.
..but went on to say that the old Paint could be retrieved/loaded from the Windows Store (for free).

Meanwhile, i really should create a post like #4 above for Paint 3D (which i loathe... yes, it does some things that Paint never could, but they're not things i particularly want to do)

The main reason i've never chosen Photoshop or Photoshop Elements for my usual level of picture-twiddling is that they're sooooo dammmmmnnn slooooooowwww to start up.

Try IrfanView. Free, versatile and good editing features. Resizing is straightforward with several options, including pixel width/height.

Hmmm... i just did a warm-up run-through with Paint 3D ...

...and i have to admit it has (at least) one useful feature that plain old Paint doesn't:
... the ability to rotate to any angle, instead of only 90 degree steps.
(they had "simply" hidden the Rotate too well...)

Maybe it's time to reconsider....

How to resize in Paint 3D:

In words:
(a) In File Explorer, right-click on the image file and choose "Open With ... Paint 3D"
(b) after it opens, click the "Canvas" icon along the top
(c) in the right-margin Canvas menu change the Width to 900 px or less
(d) hit the "Enter" key or click anywhere else and the change will happen.
(e) save the result as an Image file (not a Project)

... a short-cut for (e) is to click the upper-right-corner X to exit Paint 3D
... it will prompt you to save the file, click Save.
Done

as pictures ((b) through (d)):

Another vote for IrfanView. It's fast, tiny, and yet powerful. Installs and uninstalls quickly and easily.

I've been running ongoing updates of it since Windows 98.

Resize, rotate, crop, sharpen, resample, draw, color correct, bright, contrast - good combo of paint like and photo shop like tools.
