MAKING A COPY OF YOUR IMAGE

Work through the folder list until you find the one containing your image.  Select your image by left-clicking on it. Right-click on the image –> then left-click on copy –> right-click on a space in your folder –> you see a menu –> left-click paste. This makes a copy of your original image, on which you should continue (FastStone doesn’t allow you to undo changes, so this will preserve your original).

RESIZING YOUR IMAGE

Now left-click on your copy image –> left-click on the edit menu (top left) –> left-click on resize –> tick the ‘preserve aspect ratio’ –> click on print size and make it 72 –> click on pixels.  The width needs to be 1920 or less and the height needs to be 1080 or less. When you change one the other will also change – try altering the width first to 1920.  If the height is over 1080, overtype the height with 1080 (the width should now be reduced to below 1920) –> then click on ok.

RENAMING YOUR IMAGE

Right-click on your selected image –> Left-click on rename –> Overtype to replace the title –> Click ok.  Confirm that you want to save your images, when requested.
