nook, you made my day as i thought i was the only person who knew nothing about computers. resize, cut and paste,and trying to get those yellow things(smilies) over here are over the noggin. i type with one finger. in the near future two will be a possibility. wow
If you have Microsoft Paint, which virtually every computer running Windows has, then you can resize your pictures easily. Simply right click on a thumbnail of the file, click "Edit", then after the picture opens choose "Image" from the toolbar and "Stretch/Skew" from the drop-down menu. For a normal size digital photo (i.e. 1600 x 1200), shrink it to about 35-45% of its original size. I will usually save the resulting picture under a new filename to keep the original intact, then you can upload the shrunken pic.
I don't know what kind of camera you are using to take your pictures,but if you are using a digital you can resize them on your camera before you take them. I found that out the hard way. It's like doing the computer thing with two fingers and a on and off switch. Anything to do with electronics I'm a total failure.
