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 

You must first select the file that you want to resize

To do this, click on the Playback button. This displays all the images you have clicked

There are two ways of looking at these images

The first way is by looking at thumbnails, which are small previews of many images. Images are easier to find here

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 

Once you have found the image you want to resize, click on the button on the camera

This will open the retouch menu with many options such as resize, quick retouch, straighten, etc.

Click on the resize option

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

When you click on the resize menu, you will see many options show up.

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.

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

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.

If you have more than one memory card, you can select which memory card you want to save the image in. The same location flexibility exists even then.

Step 5: Selection

Once the location is selected, you will have to select the size of the image.

Choose from one of the options found in the format mentioned above.

Do this by highlighting the relevant option and then clicking on OK

Step 6: Confirmation and saving 

Once you press OK, the camera saves the new image as a duplicated version.

The original version also remains and is not replaced by the downsized image.

The downsizing happens through a process called downsampling, which eliminates extra pixels.

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 share etc.
