    To post a photo:

    MAKE SURE YOU PHOTO IS A--bmp, doc, gif, jpe, jpeg, jpg, pdf, png, psd, txt, zip.

    You photos can be:

    250KB bytes
    (Zip files can only be 54.7KB)

    1)click on the "post reply" button,

    2)Scroll down past the text box and find the box entitled "Additional Features",

    3)Inside the "Additional Features" box click the button that says "Manage Attachments",

    4)In the box that pops up click "Browse",

    5)Find your photo on your computer and click on the "open" button,

    6)Click on the "upload" button and hope your file is not too large,

    7)If the file size is ok then your file will show up in the bottom of the box as a "current attacnment",

    8)Click the "close this window" button,

    9)Finally click on the submit reply button (DO NOT preview your post as that will delete the attachment).

    I use Photoshop to reduce the image size. There are other programs out there. You could try a search of this site.

    1. open the picture(with MSpaint or whatever program)
    2. click File--->save as
    3. when the save screen pops up change the --save as type--- window to JPEG

    upload the new version of the file.

    Don't use .gif - use .jpeg or .jpg ;)

    I know this is old but it comes up a lot on forums. For many I think Microsoft's Power Toy is the easiest way to reduce the size of pictures for forums and email. It's free... Find picture, right click, choose size, done.

    This is what you want...

    Image Resizer
    This PowerToy enables you to resize one or many image files with a right-click.

    png is actually better for the archived copy of a photo you have. To get the photo under size for uploading here, you are better off THEN converting after to JPEG after resizing. The JPEG format is called a LOUSEY compression format because it looses image information each time you alter and save the image.

    PS - This is one reason why it is better to just copy and rename a graphic from a digital camera rather than saving it under a new name with an image program.
