    You can upload your pics to photobucket which i think resizes the picture automatically to a decent size. Makes life fairly easy when it comes to posting pics on the web. is free by the way

    be aware when you use photobucket that 1) you lose all rights to the image and it becomes the property of photobucket (you agree to this in their terms of service agreement), and 2) all photobucket images are available for anyone to view by clicking on the "recent" button in the upper right corner of the Photobucket home page and then scrolling through the list. This could be a serious privacy issue.

    Save the scan with an appropriate extension (.jpg, .bmp, etc.), and handle it the same way as any other picture file.

    I would hate to see the adjective you use to describe me. I started using a computer in 1965 and the internet in 1985 (?) such as it was.

    If you using a hosting site like Photobucket, as explained in the first post of this thread, there is no need to shrink them down.

    Hi, What is the best way to take digital pictures of coins? I tried taking pics of silver bars on a black background but the silver was too shiny and the flash showed up on the pic.
