    Default Tips for resizing photos

    There is a maximum file size for posting on most boards, so you will probably have to resize the pics to decrease the file size. If you have Windows XP, there is a great little tool from Microsoft called Image Resizer. You can download it from the Microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx
    All you have to do with this tool is right click on the photo, and select "Resize Pictures" in the drop down menu. You can resize one or several pics at once. When the size option menu pops up, choose "Small" for posting on the message board. Please note that this will create a new file, and will not alter the original photo.

    If you have another version of Windows, I found another program which also resizes images. I haven't used it, so I can't say how well it works. However, it did receive a fairly good rating from Download.com. You can download this program here: http://www.imageresizer.com/

    Hope this helps,

    Judi

    I use W98 (I know I am wayyyyyyy behind) and that one works great.
    I use it all the time. As if I would post alot of pic.

    But what's more important is the time that is known, as that little dash there in between.

    Here's another freeware program for Windows that lets you resize photos (even batches several photos):

    FastStone Photo Resizer
    http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm

    or available from download.com:

    If you are using Vista and have not found a good resizer, here is one that I found recently that works great and is FREEWARE!:

    http://www.vso-software.fr/products/...ge_resizer.php

    It integrates into the "Explore" function (rt click "Start", left click "Explore") so that if you right click on an image thumbnail, it becomes one of the options pulled up. Will size to any dimension or select from many standard dimensions. Once you select one, it defaults back to that one when used next. Renames the new file with the new dimensions added. And actually bug free so far in Vista.

    I found I could use Microsoft Power Point to change the resolution to allow for the 85MB limit. Select a slide design that you can insert a photo, select slide show from the toolbar, choose resolution, then find a resolution that will decrease the size of the file. Worked as a quick fix for me.
