I go to the picture
the right click and open with...
microsoft photo editor...
then there should be a resize button on there under image under your toolbar...
If you don't have that then I don't know what application you have.

You need to resize to 1024x768 and keep the file size under 341 mbs.

Hey addiction, The easiest one for me has been Microsofts Power Tool Image Resizer. Click link below and download the 11th file down in the right hand column ... it is FREE ... and after DL'ing, install the proggy.

When you're finished all you have to do is find a picture that is too big, right click on it, and choose the 'RESIZE IMAGE' and pick the size! What works is - LARGE (fits a 1024x768 screen) and you'll have a second copy at usable or postable size! It's easy and free. Let me know if you need help Chris

That's also how I found it. I can't seem to be able to reduce enough for a avatar pic. Any Ideas? Doug
