How to resize picture and signature for SBI, SSC, IBPS, GATE, IIT, UPPSC and other competitive examination to apply online is a very general question by candidates. Many people don’t know how to use PhotoShop because it’s much complex to resize and reduce the image size. Also, PhotoShop is not free software. As I saw If you goto the Cyber café and ask for the resize of image and signature, they will charge around 30-100 Rs. So now here I am telling you the very simple steps to resize picture and signature for SBI, SSC, IBPS, GATE, IIT to apply online.

Crop your Image If Needed
May you have an image like above that is not a passport size picture. You can crop this picture using the Crop option in the adjustment menu. Let’s See how to do this.
Click on the Crop option in menu ” In the Left-Hand side” showing by step 1.
Now you can see the drag options to choose the visible area of the picture. You can adjust the visible area from these option at top-bottom, left-right as per the requirement. This is showing in step 2 by arrows.

Click on the arrow 2 “resize image’ button and you will see a new pop up with options to enter the size of the image:
First, disable the “Constrains proportion” because now you can enter the height and width manually. When you will click, the Proportions option will be switched off and you can easily enter the your desired width and height.
Now click on Apply button.
Now your image is resized and you can save it into your computer by clicking on the save option. The save option is in the lower left corner in your computer’s screen. When you will click on save a new window will appear as shown below
Now Enter the name that you want, As per my suggestion you can put a name like – ” Your Name – Exam name” for example I am Yuvayana and I resized this picture for SBI PO exam. Then you can save it as ” Yuvayana – SBI PO Picture”. This type of naming will help you to easily recognize the picture and you can use that image easily in future.
You can vary the quality of the image according to the size. In some examinations, you have to upload the minimum 10 KB and Maximum 40 KB size image. So from this option, you can vary the image size on disk 🙂
You can follow the same procedure for re-sizing the signature.
