    4. Drag the folder of photos not the Automator application that you created.

    Sounds complicated but it really isn't.
    I think your idea of complicated and mine are a few lightyears apart. "Automator allows you to create eight different types of action" What? Ferrar I don't know how to do that on the link is says to choose tools where are the tools? Don't mean to be a pain but I do not have a clue and not really enjoying my new iMac.

    In the article that member Ferrar linked to the Preview program. You open a file in Preview then go to the Tools menu and choose Adjust Size and follow the rest of the directions.

    As far as Automator goes the eight types of action refer to the eight different types of things that can be created with Automator. Each behaves a bit differently. No need to worry about all of them now. The one we are interested in is the Application form. Choose that one.

    Once that is done simply drag actions from the left side of the window to the blank area at the far right. Once you are done save it as an Application in a convenient place. Check out this video segment I did for the Sunday chat. It will demo the Automator basics. Not the best I've done but it should get you started. Give it a try. If you can't get it done in a short period of time let me know. I could probably be persuaded to guide you through building it.

    Pat,

    A quick walk through with pictures - what fun!

    In Photos, select the picture you want to alter. Go to File > Export. This will bring up a box where you can alter JPEG Quality and Size - see these three pictures:

    sc1.pngsc2.pngsc3.png

    So, this is one way to alter size.

    But for now, choose the largest and best (as in pic 1 above). Export to Desktop.

    From the Desktop, double click the picture (by default, Preview will open the picture). Now, as regards Tools - see the next few pictures below. Tools is in the Menu Bar at the top and clicking this will show a drop down - choose Adjust Size. Where it says "Width" alter the number by typing in, say, 700 and click OK.

    Your picture is noe of a size suitable for upload to here.

    It's honestly not too complicated - have a shot - go on
