    I'm having trouble with the size of my pictures. They are either too big and I get an email from Admin or they are too small and nobody can see them. What do you all use to upload your pictures so you can use them here? I've been using Photobucket, but I can't seem to get it right.

    Any help is appreciated.

    My program has an option to resize. I click on it and then reduce to 60%- 70% I believe.

    If you attach images instead of embedding them, then the board resizes them automatically to the appropriate size.

    I downloaded a free application direct from microsoft..thing its called powertoys Image resizer.

    I right click on any image, window pops up with options of small, medium or large, click on small, new resized image is made.

    Uploads and downloads in no time!!

    This only applies if you are running on Windows of course :roll:

    I guess I'm still confused. I downloaded the resizer, changed the size of the picture. Now what do I do? How do I get it here?

    Nope. There won't be any links.
    Instead of using IMG tags, try adding file attachments when making a post.
