Forum Question: Resizing photos

Can someone tell me if there is a way to resize photos in iPhoto? I know it can be done while exporting them, but it seems that so many websites tell me “my file is too big”, I want to resize them while still in iPhoto.

    Exporting them is exactly the way you should be resizing them to upload to sites. You want to have your original full-resolution photo in iPhoto — iPhoto is your library of Photos. Resizing a photo would be like making a xerox copy of a printed photo and then throwing the original away.
    To upload to a site, choose File, Export and then select JPG. Try medium quality and a Size of “small” or “medium.” That should be small enough for any site.
