    been having the trouble when I post pics they are coming out too small. Here's how I do it- I take a pic from my camera, send it to my e-mail, in my e-mail it goes to my photos, i then go to my photos and send it to my documents and send it to the quilting board from there, and they are showing up small, What am I doing wrong? I had never had this problem before. I know most of you are computer literate out there as I am not. Someone help please

    What about just saving your photos directly to your 'My Documents' folder? Not sure why you're sending to email first?

    It might also be the resolution you have your camera set to - but I suspect that there is something in the email transition that is downsizing the pix.

    I upload mine directly into my picture folder and can browse them immediately.

    I resize my photos using GIMP, a free program like Photoshop and upload them to the QB. They can't be larger than 800 x, right?

    But when originally downloading the pics to my computer, they go into My Pictures folder under the date I download them.

    Your email program may be reducing the size, to make sending the faster.

    I agree with downloading them to your computer and then uploading them straight to here :D:D:D

    thanks to all of you, I took your advice and downloaded straight from my e-mail to my documents and it worked. I just posted the bigger and better pic on the picture board. The topic is called hope the pics are bigger, it is of some 2 1/2 in squares
