DoyleSoft How To

Re-sizing images in Paint.net

Images taken with digital cameras are usually captured in high enough quality to allow for them to be printed onto standard photo reproductions and enlargements. The quality it takes to reproduce the photo onto these mediums far exceeds that required to display the image on a computer screen. Resizing images taken from a digital camera before they are published onto the web or sent via e-mail can therefore offer the following key benefits.

1. Those viewing the photo wonít need to wait a long time for the images to download.
2. The photo can be viewed on screen with the whole scene viewable and not hidden.

To re-size an image:

1. Click Start | Programs (All Programs) | Paint.Net
2. File | Open. Browse to the image and click Open.
3. Click Image | Resize...
4. Click File | Save As...
5. Choose a File Name and click Save.
6. In the Save Configuarion window, choose a percentage of quality and then click OK.
7. DONE!

Cleaning up Windows XP

The industry is crammed with programs designed to help you free up resources and declutter and protect your system. With so many choices available, knowing which products to use can be confusing. We have put together six products we have found interesting and helpful. You canít go wrong with them.

System Mechanic:

fix shortcuts, clean and optimize the Registry, defragment disks, optimize memory, remove duplicate files, block pop-ups, and remove some spyware

Window Washer:

Window Washer is a system cleaner that helps maintain your privacy. It removes information collected with browsing, such as your cache, cookies, history, deleted e-mails, and so on. It also cleans your Recycle Bin, program run histories, recent documents lists, and the like.

Spybot Search & Destroy:

Without a doubt, Spybot S&D is the best spyware detection and removal software available. To top it off, itís free. Constantly updated, the software recognizes and removes a huge number of spyware programs from throughout your system. With the recent addition of the TeaTimer, it can even provide real-time continuous protection against surreptitious spyware activities.

ZoneAlarm:

Zone Labs created ZoneAlarm as personal firewall for Windows systems. It stops intruders from accessing your PC, essentially making your system invisible to hackers. The Pro version includes a pop-up blocker and rudimentary cookie management capabilities. It also analyzes incoming and outgoing e-mail to identify and quarantine potential viruses.

Firefox:

You really can't find a better and more widely accepted alternate browser than Firefox.

Ad-Aware:

Protection against spyware that secretly attaches and takes control of your computer, resulting in aggressive advertising pop-ups, sluggish computer activity, even identify theft through stolen bank details, passwords, and credit card account numbers.
