How to resize photos to post them here.


http://www.picresize.com/ Very easy to use.
Quick resize by 25 50 or 75% smaller, ( note reducing by 75% results in pic 25% size of original) or custom size by width or height or maximum Kilobytes. Also cropping and some resolution changes. Change format jpg to others and vice versa
Renames pic by putting rsz_ infront of original name

For posting a pic from web, tool or fitting for example, Big boxes etc websites have small but usually clear pics. Or use Google images, scroll over small image and copy pop up.

Often too wide a pic changes format of thread, resulting in wide lines of copy, requiring scrolling side to side. I've heard that some people make short, to the point posts, so there is nol need to scroll. There are some that make long rambling posts, wandering from here to there, half way back again, bringing up all sorts of off topic and off the wall things, when the topic is how to get something off the floor not the wall. And wasn't that a pretty picture of the parrot? And scrolling back and forth on one of those can make a person dizzy and they fall off their chair and they can't keep track of what is being said, as if they were even interested or as if it were important in the first place. So don't post big wide pictures. Or teeny little ones either cause my eyes are not what they used to be. In fact they never were.

You can also use a software named paint.net. Just download it form the net and resize it to post it here.

Preview is included as part of Mac OSX and works great. This is the default program to open most image files on your mac. Just open your image and go to the tools menu at the top and select "Adjust Size".

It gives you a few options for standard image sizes or you can make it a custom size by pixels, percent, inches or metric and in the bottom pane shows the original image size and the resulting size after you make the changes.
