I'm Parker Pierce, and this is "how to reduce image magnification in Paint." There's more than one adjustable magnification you can make in MS Paint. There's the image itself, and then, there's simply the viewing of the image. And, this is important for navigation and organization. So, I'm gonna show you how all that works. First, open up Paint. Make an image of some sort. One approach to controlling the magnification of the image is a selection tool. Clicking and dragging the corners can increase and decrease the image's size. Beware of quality loss that happens through this. You'll only want to use this for decreasing the image size. You will not return to the same quality if you resize an image after you've shrunk it down. There's also the magnifying glass, itself, which increases and decreases the viewing magnification. Left-click to increase. Right to decrease. You can adjust the size of the canvas by clicking on the bottom right corner. And, you can also crop a part, once you have a selection made, and that will lower the scale and the magnification of the image.
