We recommend our students to resize their images to 10mb or smaller before uploading them to Smashcut.


  • Open your image in Preview by double clicking or right clicking and scrolling to preview

  • If using Preview, click on tools in the top menu and select "adjust size"

  • Resize your image until you see it is smaller than 10mb


  • In Paint, open your image by opening up the File menu, and then clicking the “Open” command

Find and select the image you want to resize, and then click the “Open” button

On the Home tab of the Paint toolbar, click the “Resize” button

Select the percentage you want, or the desired dimensions, and then click the “OK” button.

  • Select resize

  • Choose any size smaller than 10mb
