Ok, a couple of issues here...

Sometimes members will use huge pictures in their posts that cause dial-up users and even DSL/cable problems. Also, the new Gallery limits uploads to anywhere from 250Kb to 400Kb depending on your member status. So basically, these huge pictures need to be resized.

Microsoft has a cool and unbelievably simple image resizing tool for XP that's perfect for both these instances. I even have the "Image Resize Toy" for XP in our downloads area. smile.gif

All you do is right click the image file and resize it (ideally to 800x600 or maybe 1024x768 max). Not to worry, this doesn't override the original file, just makes a reduced size copy.

There's now another free version of this for Windows Vista and Windows 7 available here.

Anyone with a PC who doesn't have a photo editor should get this simple, free tool. thumbsup.gif

I resize all mine to 800x600 or less now. Takes less time to upload and in a good size for the page.

I have been needing something for Vista.
I really liked the XP toys.

Picasa 3 (free download from Google) is a photo editing/storage program that is excellent. It also has a very easy to use resizing feature. Click on the "Export" button at the bottom of its screen, and you can resize to anything you like. DLT
