You sound like a beginner (nothing wrong with that! ) trying to figure things out. It sounds like you are getting jpgs from you camera onto the computer and not sure what to do next. Correct?

Anyway, you need software to process your images, for one to resize them, for another to crop them, for another to adjust exposure, for another to sharpen. Picasa by Google is good for free software. Give it a try, and come back here with questions.

But you may also want to tell us more about what you do (camera, software) and what you know, so we can better tell how to help you.

Cropping and resizing is a task carried out in whatever photo editing software you are using.

Do not, under any circumstances whatsoever, click here. Don't even think about it. I'm warning you!
