I want to post some pictures but they are too large. Does anyone know to make them smaller?

You can resize with the standard Paint program that comes with Windows. Just make sure that you adjust the length and the width the same amount, so you don't end up with a distorted picture.

Alright, first, I must confess that I am NOT computer literate. The way I do my pictures is: I email them to myself. (I right click on them and send toicon_smile.gif The email program will ask if I want to resize them to email and I say "yes". Them, I open my email and "save" the picture to "My Pictures". When I get ready to upload, I browse, find the file and it always works! Please, if this sounds stupid and simple minded, don't attack me. LOL!!! This was just a way I could do it myself without having to ask my daughter for help!

I know the feeling now that my sons are married and out of the house, I don't have instant access to computer help - and the kids next door are still too little to use computers! icon_rolleyes.gif

My feelings exactly. thumbs_up.gif

I'll try to figure it out and if I find ANY way that works, I'm real happy. icon_lol.gif (And I'm not too proud to copy helpful directions for future use!) icon_cool.gif
