How to Get an Image Between 50kb and 20mb???

Hello, I have been trying yo add images to various titles, and it keeps rejecting them because they don't fit.  I am at my wits end trying to find one that does fit... can anyone tell me how to resize it so they fit?  I'm using Windows Paint.  Thank you!

I suggest resizing the image to double (or more) of its current size. I do it all the time with different software. (I just pulled up Paint, and Resize is there, using percentages, and they have a tickbox for maintaining aspect ratio.)

If the system says that the picture is too small, it’s best to forget it and keep trying to find a better one. There’s no point adding soft, fuzzy and murky pictures. Sometimes there just isn’t any good photos/covers/posters.

Thank you all!  So, here's the photos (and there's probably more I will want to add)

Oh, I don't care if they're poor quality... I can't find any that aren't!  It's just a shame to see my fave shorts not have cover images.

Hi, NarniaisAwesome:

It seems that the images belong to Safety: Harm Hides at Home and
Beginning Responsibility: Lunchroom Manners respectively. There are clips of both short films easily available on YouTube. Try to locate one with a certain quality (though is hard to find higher than 480p), take a screenshot and crop it (if needed) with an image editor (Windows Paint is too simple, but suffices to just cropping; there are very good free online editors, like Pixlr)...

Here you are:



Cheers!

If a title has no cover image, something is (mostly) better than nothing. 

Those I've contributed look fine for the purposes of the smallish icons for lists (grid or detail view), and for the cover image on a title page. At least that's true on a 15.6" monitor. Maybe on 55" the image comes across as blurry. 

I don't contribute one that looks blurry at the icon level.

BTW, a lot of what falls short and I double - come from Amazon product listings. So they're actually clear enough, just very efficiently stored.

This time the images are good quality, but still won't fit.

Oh, I already submitted those above from ijdoncel's uploads... now I'm working with Dallas pics.  Anyway, here they are:

I can resize and crop them a little with Paint, but it doesn't help!
