    Not very big SBP

    I tend to use the resizer that I linked & it's set to 750 and that give most images a size around 35-40Kb It's a doddle to use. Down load the app & then you rename it to the size you want e.g. PhotoResize750 this gives a size of 750 x 750 pixels

    Hope this helps

    Hi DDL, not sure if it's the same for everyone's system but if you've re-sized your pics. to 500 pixels they should be in a file called 'Picasa Exports' in 'My Pictures' (if you're using Windows XP).When you want to add one to your post you click on the little paperclip shape next to the smiley on the screen where it says 'Fonts', Sizes' etc. & a box will appear on your screen. Click on 'Browse' & go into 'My Pictures' then select 'Picasa Exports' then select the photo you want. Click on 'Upload' on the box which is on your screen & when this has uploaded click'Close this Window'. When you post your message your photo will then appear as a thumbnail at the bottom which you can click on to see a larger view.
    This is probably not the same for everyone as some people seem to be able to get full size photos to come up in their message - no idea how that works! I'm a bit 'dim' myself when it comes to computers DDL, so if I can manage it I'm sure you will!
    Into every life a little rain must fall.

    I think there was a request not to post full size pics. Some members are still on dial up and it takes forever for the images to load up. Better to post thumbnails which can be enlarged.

    Hi DDL, try the prog I use it's so much easier than Picassa for re-sizing. If you pm me your e-mail address I'll mail you a copy set up ready I don't think it's too big and it is a freebie.
