Resizing your horse for sale pictures

Have you ever wondered how to easily crop and re size your barrel horses pictures? Or how about take the silly looking guy holding your prospect out of your picture. Maybe you were too far away when you took your picture and you want to crop it closer. Scanners and digital cameras these days take pictures at really large file sizes. This can make sending your pictures and viewing them a real pain in the butt.

Here is a link to some free software I use every day here at It is called Irfanview (click the word when you are ready to go to the site). It really is free, it is small and quick to download and install. It doesn't come with much for instructions so I made this quick video on how to crop and how to re size pictures.

I hope that this will help you out when you are sending ads in to RodeoClassifieds or when you are sending a bunch of pictures of your horses or trailers for sale to potential customers. You should crop all the extra stuff out of your pictures and also send them at a nice size for viewing, but also a size that will send and download quickly.

Here is the video, you'll see just how easy it is. It is me, on my computer, just for you! It has volume with me speaking, so you might have to adjust your really don't want to hear my voice blaring :o)

Be sure to sign up for our newsletter, our next newsletter will talk about buying and selling in the winter. We have so many nice horses for sale right now, check out the classifieds. If you are looking for a new trailer this season, the selection has never been better.

Use the Internet to find breeders that are near you. Go to an equine classified site there are too many to list: search under "horses for sale" and then do a search on that site by state and breed.
