    Hi everyone,I would like to post some pictures on the Photo Critique, but I don’t know how to resize my photos on iCloud. Does any body know how to do that on a Mac?

    Hi Kenneth! @k3t6
    I have a Mac, running macOS 10.12.6 Sierra. I’m not sure how to resize something in iCloud, but I suspect it’s somewhat similar to doing it if the photo is on “the ground” on your hard drive :).
    In Preview,
    I resize my photos in Preview, but I believe you can also do this in Photos. In Finder (on your desktop or in a folder somewhere), open your image by double clicking. Preview is the default program that should open it. Then click File –> Duplicate to save a new image so you don’t write over your full size image. Then click Tools –> Adjust Size… . There will be a little window that opens with a few options for resize. I use the custom size, and then resize my image to something like 2400 by 1600 pixels and 72 pixels/inch for lenspiration, and I leave the “Scale Proportionately” and “Resample Image” boxes checked. Click “OK” and then save your image!

    In Photos
    Click File–>Export–>Export 1 Photo… .
    Then Set your file type (JPEG is best for lenspiration), leave image quality on High, Color Profile on sRGB, then size to “custom.” Max: Dimension: 2400 (I’ve done 1500 before; your won’t have to worry as much about image theft that way, but it’s not as sharp). Click “Export” and then you have your image, resized and ready for Lenspiration

    Hope this helps!
