The FamilySearch Wiki encourages users to submit images that improve the content of the FamilySearch Wiki and are appropriate to the Wiki. Unfortunately, not all images are small enough to make them usable on the Wiki. Below are instructions on how to re-size, edit, and compress images so they will be more suitable to submit to the FamilySearch Wiki.

Editing Images Using Picnik

 1. To use the basic Picnik tools, it is not necessary to register. Visit Picnik, and click "Upload Photo."

2. After clicking "Upload Photo," the user's computer browser will open up and the user will be able to locate and upload the photo that needs to be re-sized or edited.

3. Once the image appears online at Picnik, click "Resize" on the toolbar.

4. This will open the resizing settings that will appear above the image. Type in the new dimensions. The re-sized image will appear in the window below.

5. Click “OK” to save the changed dimensions.

6. To complete the re-sizing of the image, save the image back to your computer.

7. After images have been resized and saved to your computer, you may Upload Images to the Wiki.
