Good idea Elfie.  walks maybe you could explain it on the help board for anyone who comes in to see.  Toy

That would be the place for it.

Instructions using XP and your free Paint program. If you're using Windows 7 it'll be a LITTLE different.  I also prefer www.imgur.com to any other for uploading photos. No need to register or sign in or any other silly stuff.


Do this (if you're using Windows):

1) Open Paint (it's in "Accessories")
2) Browse to your image
3) Open image
4) Now click on "Image" in the Paint tool bar

5) You'll get a drop down menu. Now click on "Attributes"

6) You'll now see the image size in pixels. If taken with a camera, it'll be HUGE.  You'll want the image no larger than 400 to 500 pixels wide.  "Make it so."  Make sure you keep the ratio between width & height or it'll be distorted.

7) If you're happy with the size for posting or emailing, click "Save As" and give it a NEW Name--otherwise you'll lose the large picture.  I usually go with "pic-sm.jpg" (for "small")
