To resize a photo in Windows, you’ll need to open it first using Paint. From there, you edit and resize the photo according to your preferences. If you want, you can also use a third-party image editing software like GIMP or Photoshop.
Speaking of which, most of these software will require you to do the resizing in another window or panel. You cannot just right-click on a photo to resize it. Well, that’s not really the case with “Image Resizer for Windows”.
