If your photo is quite big and you want to make it smaller, you can scan it with a scanner and adjust its size using Adobe Photoshop. First, prepare your photo by scanning your picture with a scanner then crop the picture so that only the photo is displayed and the scanner’s cover is removed in the background.

You can go to a computer shop to scan and crop the picture. Once the picture is done, download Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1. Follow the instructions to download and unpack and then install it. Once installed, start Photoshop then open the file you scanned. Once the file is loaded, press ALT + I + I to change the size of the image.

In the Image Size dialog, under “Document Size”, set the width to 2 and the height will follow. When you are finished, click “OK”. Press CTRL + SHIFT + S to do a “Save As” then save the file with a new name. Now, just print the file. You can go to a photo studio to print the file.
