Default Posting Pictures

I wish OSO had an automatic picture re-sizer when trying to post pictures. I want to sell some items and the pictures are too big amd I can't resize them.

With XP, I can right click on a picture, and in the options menu that pops up, there is an option that says Resize Pictures, and its the fourth one down. Click on that and it gives you 4 choices of sizes.

Is yours like that hi-perf-2000?

That is pretty cool. I never knew that and I'm computer literate!

XP is by far the best Windows to date. I dont have near the problems I did with 98 or Millinium. I use the resize option all the time.

Another quick way I used to make them smaller was click on the SEND TO option, and email it to myself. Before it sends, it has the option, Keep Pictures original size or Make pictures smaller. I would click the smaller option and save it that way when it arrived. Alot of people didnt know you could email yourself!

resize to 600x480 or smaller, then save it to your hard drive. Now your ready to up load to OSO. When you post, scroll down and see manage attachements. Hit browse, find the photo on your hard drive, then click upload, finally go back and post the reply. It's easy if the photo is smalle enough. I usually go to 600x480 and then crop it a little bit for a safe margin.
