Can someone tell me how to resize pictures to post. When I try to post them they are always real big.
Thanks,
Joe

Open up the pic in whatever program it opens in. Look for an icon that says something like "close this file and open to edit". Rough translation. LOL

Or your program may have a drop down option titled "Image".

Either way, go to "resize".

Pick "pixels"

Change to 600 by 400. The 400 may default to something like 420.

Then do a "file, save as". Rename it so that you can retain the higher resolution version.


Hope this helps.

Jim

i have a couple of programs to do this. irfanview, and photobucket. they are both free. open the file there resize it and sve it back to your drive under a new name. once you do it a few times it will be easy. most computers have a program to do this, but i couldnt find mine? im sure i could have done it, just didnt know how. id suggest a photobucket account, its real easy. has an icon at the top of the page to resize. and its free. good luck
