? regarding posting large MB images

    Recommended Posts

    Just spent an hour trying to post some pictures and none of them would take. I check their size and realize they are large files but can't figure out how to "trim" them down to get the server to take them. Posted what I could, but they su^& in comparison to some of the others I wanted to post.

    Any ideas?

    You need to get a hold of some sort of picture program if you're using Windows OS...for instance, I use Photoshop, which easily reduces the size of your images. Try Photoshop Elements, which will run you from $50 to $100 at any computer store.

    Reducing the size doesn't make the images smaller (well it puts them at 1024x768) but takes out some of the detail that isn't needed...like reducing music to MP3 format.

    If you are using Windows XP there's a free set of tools from Microsoft called PowerToys that makes resizing as simple as right-clicking on the file in explorer and telling it to re-size. It will optionally keep the original and create the smaller file with a new name. Here's a link to all of the PowerToys:

    Here's a direct like to the image re-sizer tool:
