A Canadian Foodie

OK. Guilty. I find it very difficult to know how to size and send a photo at a requested size. I ask for them to be sent to me all of the time at a very specific size, and just size them myself if they don’t comply, but that is easy as I have a little application built for me that will resize all high res photos I drop onto it to 800 pixels wide. I didn’t make the app, but one of my developers did… so – can you please write a post for people like me – BEFORE October the 8th, on how to size a photo to 620 pixels wide?
