How To Resize A Single Photo on Nikon D7100

Do you want to share an image online? Is the size giving you trouble? In this article you will find the steps to resize a single photo and convert it to a web-friendly JPEG format:

Below Are The Steps To Resize A Single Photo on Nikon D7100

Step 1: Selection 

  1. You must first select the file that you want to resize
  2. To do this, click on the Playback button. This displays all the images you have clicked
  3. There are two ways of looking at these images
  4. The first way is by looking at thumbnails, which are small previews of many images. Images are easier to find here
  5. The other way is the single image mode. Here you can look at the intricate details and choose your image. Decide what works best for you and toggle between modes by clicking ‘OK.’



Step 2: Initiation 

  1. Once you have found the image you want to resize, click on the button on the camera
  2. This will open the retouch menu with many options such as resize, quick retouch, straighten etc.
  3. Click on the resize option
  4. This will allow you to create a low resolution, email-friendly copy of your image. This is good for sending and posting online, as you cannot do this with larger RAW files etc.


Step 3: Resize

  1. When you click on the resize menu, you will see many options show up.
  2. These options have two parts if you notice. The first part, which is numbers such as 1920 x 1080 or 1280 x 856 or 960 x 640, is the resolution of the image. This is the pixel count. The higher the pixel count, the larger the image.
  3. The second number corresponds to the size. It is displayed with numbers such as 2.5M or 1.1M. Note that Gmail has a limit of 25M and anything above this will be sent as a Google Drive Link.



Step 4: Storage

  1. If you have just one memory card in your camera, it will by default, get saved in that card. Within this card, you can select which location you want to save the image in. Then, whenever you insert the card elsewhere, the downsized image will be found in that location, making it very convenient for you.
  2. If you have more than one memory card, you can select which memory card you want to save the image in. He same location flexibility exists even then.


Step 5: Selection

  1. Once the location is selected, you will have to select the size of the image.
  2. Choose from one of the options found in the format mentioned above.
  3. Do this by highlighting the relevant option and then clicking on OK


Step 6: Confirmation and saving 

  1. Once you press OK, the camera saves the new image as a duplicated version.
  2. The original version also remains and is not replaced by the downsized image.
  3. The downsizing happens through a process called Down-sampling, which eliminates extra pixels.
  4. The retouched image will be identifiable and distinguishable from the original with the help of a retouch icon that is present on the top left-hand corner of the screen.


DSLRs generally shoot high-resolution images. That is why people buy them, but these images may be a problem when it comes to easy sharing. This is when you will need to resize the image so that you can easily send the image across to the recipient without having to create a drive and sharing etc.
