The lessons provided will teach you how to properly resample images. There are three tutorials for three common programs. Other graphics programs are similar to these. The programs are Kodak's Imaging for Windows, Corel PHOTO-PAINT and Adobe Photoshop.

You will now see the dimensions and resolution of your image. You must change the width to 200 pixels and the resolution to 72 dpi. (See image below). Remember to keep the width to height ratio the same.
