Mine worked by opening the pic, click IMAGE, then RESIZE/RESAMPLE. Then where it shows the size in pixels (on the left) there is a choice to resize either in pixels, cm, or inches. Check off INCHES. Then where it shows the width and height (it will still be showing the numbers in pixels there) put 5 in the width box, the height will change automatically. Then click ok. That should do it.

As long as the "Preserve Aspect Ratio" box is checkmarked, Irfanview will change the corresponding measurement to match whatever dimension you've entered. You also want to be sure the DPI is set at 300 if you want to print the picture out. The 72dpi is optomized for viewing on computer monitors.

My apologies Horseshoe, mine does work the same. There is a pretty solid layer of wood around my brain, it takes awhile for anything to get through, particularly good information. Thanks again, always nice to have some who's feet are solid on the ground help you. :o)

Now that I have learned how to size it, it brings up another question, LOL. If I make the picture small enough that 4 pics would fit on an 81/2 inch by 11 inch Photo paper, how do I manage to get four different pictures on the one page? I think it can be done but how?

Well, you're welcome! I am glad to help; it's something I really enjoy doing.

There's other programs that will help you do mutiple copies of pictures on one page, even different pictures. I am not sure about shareware or freeware options, but I know Epson's Film Factory and the Olympus Camedia Master software are two which do this pretty simply and with a lot more ease and flexibility than Irfanview. Let me do some snooping. If I forget, remind me! :)
