Save part of enlarged JPeg


[link to this post]
 
I have been sent a JPEG file and I can enlarge it enormously using Paint. But I cant manage to save part of the enlargement that I want. To be precise, it's a' photo of some people at a leaving do but I'd like to save the part containing my friend and his close friends without the rest of the photo. I promised him I'd have a go......
I can get the part I want on the screen but it always defaults to saving the whole photo again.

You would need to use the crop function. Use the select tool to grab the area you want and then click on crop. That will cut it out at which point you can save the cropped area (preferably as a new file so as not to overwrite the original).

Will paint do that? The version on my PC at work (Windows XP) doesnt have the crop facility or the ability to write JPG files.

The Irfanview programme will do it (and is free) as will paint.net (download from "getpaint.net").

Win 7 it does. And win 8 of course can do a bit more again.

XP I seem to remember was easiest if you select the area, select copy and then open a new paint window and paste it in. Don't think XP will save as JPEG though.

EDIT - not sure the XP version could open JPEG in which case I am assuming the OP is not on XP?

With my XP Paint, I managed to:

Select a rectangle / Copy / New / Paste / Save As JPEG.

However I couldn't get the size right; it was very small but had loads of pixels, many more than original. But I'm not familiar with this and you may know more about it.

With Microsoft Picture It! Photo you can do all the cropping you want using Create a Cutout, get the size right and save as JPEG.

I'd suggest that you get a copy of GIMP (it's free) and use that to do the crop/save of the image smile

OK - XP can do it. To save the JPG requires a "Save as".

It doesnt appear to allow a choice of the level of compression which will be why you had large pixels.

Irfanview is vastly than paint. I like its ability to do JPG lossless transformations to convert portait to landscape and vice-versa but keeping all data in the image including the exif data and it doesnt change the data written. Excellent product!

A little late reading this thread, but can I recommend Faststone Image Viewer. This tiny program does a whole lot more than crop & is free. You can find it here
