How to Resize Image in Windows 10 Photos app

The Photos app included in Windows 10 is a universal app that allows you to enjoy, organize, edit, and share all your digital memories. It brings together photos and videos from all your devices, enhances them to make great photos even better, and organizes them into beautiful albums for you.

The Photos app will also allow you to resize an image to reduce the size of the image and its storage size.

The sizes to resize an image with may not be supported and available for all images.
  • Small - Best for profile pictures and thumbnails.
  • Medium - Best for emails and messages.
  • Large - Best for viewing.

Here's How:
