picture posting

I am learning how to post pictures and when I uploaded, I received an error message stating the pixels were to large. I am guessing this means the photo is to large or too much resolution? How do I resize?

You can use a program like IRFANVIEW, which is mentioned in the Sticky on picture posting above, or you can use the "Picture Resizer" PowerToy if you are using Windows XP, which is really easy...

All of the Power Toys are available at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

Mark - it is best if pictures are sized to 640 X 480 prior to uploading. This will be best for viewing and will allow you to upload more pictures and stay within your allowable storage limit. You can use Irfanview, Photoshop or Windows Paint etc. to re-size. Also there are Windows Power Toys available for the later versions of Windows that will allow you to right click on an image file and re-size with a single click on the menu.
