Picture software help

I can't upload any of my pictures to this forum because the dimensions are to large, not the amount of mb but the actual dimensions. I need a resizing program, does anybody know of a good free one I can download. Thanks.

Try either picasa2 or xnview.
They're both free and work like a charm.

The software which came with your camera should have that ability, I know the the software with my HP camera does.

You may already have the software on a PC and just don't know it. Right-click (let's see Mac users do that!) on the image file icon and a menu will drop down; scroll down to 'Open With' -- that will tell you the programs that could open it. Ignore Paint, Internet Explorer and Windows Picture & Fax Viewer. Microsoft Photo Editor has a resize function that uses % reduction -- not the best but it works. Its crop function is also pretty poor! Are there other programs on your computer?

Any time you modify an original photo file DO NOT USE 'SAVE' or you will write over your original file. Only use 'SAVE AS' -- and I will usually save them temporarily to the desktop so I can easily discard them after I use them to post.

Big photo files will use up your allowable space on the server quicker. Although we allow 1024 x 1024, these aren't the most viewable by other members. I find 600 x 800 images provide good detail and fit within a browser's viewing window very well. And I post smaller images all the time if the area of interest isn't much.

You've gotten some ideas from the posts above and here are plenty more:

One of the most popular free programs, and I have used it for 6-7 years, is Irfanview from IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide. It will certainly do the job and can be used to view virtually any type of image.

Once you have it installed Open the desired image then go to Edit->Resize/Resample and pick the settings you want. S to Save As - then just pick a new name.

Windows for XP has a great free download for image resizing.

Thanks for all the advice. Last night I just googled pic. resizer and then chose and downloaded picaso2. While I can crop it down to size or use one of their precropped sizes like 4x6, 3x5, etc. it won't let me just change the dimensions like on my old computer(this one is new and no it's not a mac). On my old pooter I could resize to just about any image size I wanted, I could size it to 668x702 if I so chose to do so. I think I may transfer that program to my new computer as I liked it a lot better than this picaso2. Anyway thanks for all the advice. Nos I have been trying to place a pic in this post and I have been unsucessful( back to the drawing board).

When I click on the insert image a box pops up for a URL, do I have to upload to a picture saving website first in order to insert pic's in my posts? I used to be able to use image shack and basically a hotlink to do this, will that work? I know, I know I could just try it and see.

No - here's how to load files from your computer:

>Click on reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
>Click "go advanced" add text to message window and then scroll down.
>Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
>Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 1024 x 1024 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 300 K. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
>Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
>Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear in post.


About attachment storage limits

When you upload a copy of an image file (or other attachment) it is stored on our servers. There are some restrictions on how much can be stored.

Registered members are limited to 10 MB of attachment storage for items posted to threads and posts and 100 MB for files posted to the photo gallery. We highly recommend that you reduce file sizes before uploading them to posts and threads.

Rivet Free Photo Editor for Any Platform

Another good software is the GIMP. It is freeware for Unix (*x), Windows, or Mac. It is pretty powerful and rivals Photoshop in many ways. I have evaluated it, but I have a full version of Pshop.

A Windows installer is available at GIMP - Windows installers

Wish you were here CanoeStream, you could see me right-click on stuff all the time. I also use the wheel and back and forward buttons on the side of my (Microsoft) mouse. Ok, there is no way I would use my Mac with a Mac mouse. I use identical Microsoft wireless mice on my Windows machine at work and my Mac at home.

I have reached my limit and could not post a photo to a thread the other day. Does an enhanced account solve this? Or ??
