photos too big

I am making a calendar using digital photos of small paintings. I uploaded them and put them onto the calendar and the ! mark comes up saying they will be too blurry.  Also I am only getting a portion of the picture in the space where I want it...like the top half of the painting not the whole picture.  I assume my digital file is too big but dont know how to change that. Any suggestions

Re: photos too big

Use Photoshop or Irfanview to reduce or increase the size of image.

Re: photos too big

If it says they will be too blurry it can mean the DPI is far too low. Try 300dpi.

Photo resize for calendar.

I have a bunch of paintings, all different sizes. I want to make a calendar. This may be a stupid question, but how do I format the size? And maintain the full painting? They are all 300dpi.

I don't know photoshop. What about in iphoto? I wish there ws a corner tool in your program....Also, a font tool so I could put in some quotes :smileywink:
