    I've saved over the years, about 50 screenshots from the school newspaper(about my kids). In order to capture the whole article I had to adjust the zoom on every one of them. The zoom vary in size, from 67-90%. Is there a way to make an album out of it, with all of them having the same size font and fit the screen? I don't need anything fancy, just something as simple as possible. My OS is Win.10

    Try setting whatever viewer you're using to "Fit to Screen". (I think hat's what you're after).

    They do fit the screen, mate. But on some of the screenshots, the letters are so small, and it's very hard to read(because I had to zoom out in order to capture the whole page).

    I have used this tool to resize images in bulk for years
    https://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/

    just make sure you DO NOT select "resize originals" in case it goes wrong
    Leaving that unchecked creates a resized copy in same folder with name like image_name(resized).jpg

    Seems to me that they probably need to be enlarged to fit 2 or three screens to get the text back to the original size. And the text has probably lost some of its definition in the 67% reduction compression.

    Is there anyway to get the original oversized article(s) again ? ... and screen capture the "parts" at full size ?

    Irfanview can "batch process" any re-sizing needs after a capture, display to screen size or even print to available paper size.

    But I'm thinking that some of the articles might need some Photoshop reconstruction to fit the
    Height AND Width "album" requirements.

    It might help if we could see a "Worst Case example"
    Is this a Paper, Computer or a big screen TV "Album" ???

    I agree with Noyb,
    Sounds like your are trying to put 10 pounds in a 5 pound bag?

    If you don't mind sharing this personal info here ....
    :D :D I think we might be able to put 10 lbs in a 5lb bag :D :D

    Sounds like this is a memory that might be worth some effort.
    I'd first aim for a Big Screen TV flash drive "Memory Album" ...

    Consider resizing for a minimum of a 4K (3840×2160) screen. 8K, (7680×4320) monitors and TVs are already on the market.

    Thank's guys for your help I really appreciate it. Derek's suggestions is exactly what I was looking for. Excellent tool! Now, question number 2. Is there a way that I can make a booklet from the edited screenshots (something like a supermarket catalog) and turn the pages just with a click on an arrow?

    It's a good one mate, but I don't intend to publish it online. Just want to have it in my personal folder in a catalog layout. All the screenshots are in a PNG format(I can convert them to something else if necessary).

    Screenshot (146).png My dear good people from TSG, sorry to bother you again but I just remembered that I didn't attach any of the files I was inquiring about. There is a random screenshot, taken with 67% zoom. My main question was, is it possible to make it a normal size and fill the space on both sides with text?
