Is it a pain for you to resize your pictures so they will post on the forum? Well there is a free application that makes it as easy as right clicking the picture and selecting the image size you want. You can even do multiple pictures at one time. Check out

Image Resizer for Windows

Would you remind this computer challenged senior what the proper image size is for this forum and I would presume the rest of the internet world? I suffer from CRS, STML and LTML (for those who forgot what these mean: CRS=can't remember stuff; STML= Short Term Memory Loss; LTML=Long Term Memory Loss.

I've got so many written post-it notes, they're like pages in a book nowadays.

BTW, thanks for the link.

The forum has software that will resize a picture that is larger than desired. However, it often chokes on very large pictures which is typically the problem that newbies have in posting pictures. They try to post pictures right out of the camera and present day cameras, even a phone camera, take super large pictures. I don't have problems posting picture sizes no larger than 1920x1080 pixels. It seems the site software can digest images that large.

Image Resizer can resize multiple pictures at a time. To do this, select a picture (left click it) in File Explorer then hold down the CTRL key and select the other pictures you want to resize. Set the size picture you want and click RESIZE. Voila!

Dave, if you will PM me, I'll give you a link to a program that will let you post virtual sticky notes with your computer so you don't have to make 3M rich. ;) And, these won't clutter up your monitor.

This program has nothing to do with the process of posting pictures. All it does is make the pictures smaller so the site software that uploads the pictures from your computer and into your post can handle them. You will still have to use the INSERT IMAGE button to put the pictures in your post after you resize them.

I tend to use a couple of tools to resize image files for Email and posting. Typically, a Jpeg file with about 1024 pixels on it's longest axis will have great detail and a small size, especially if you compress it to about 40% to 50% quality level. When I return from taking pictures to the computer, I generally copy them all to their own subdirectory on my PC, and make a subdirectory for re-sized images that I can Email or post to the Forum.

The tools I like are "GIMP" the Graphics Image Manipulation Program (I didn't name it) which is opensource and free, and a commercial photo management package called ACDSEE, which has powerful batch processing capabilities.

Both of these are more involved than the utility Guy mentioned, but they also have very powerful control capabilities and tools.
