You need a separate application to edit your photos.

MS Office Picture Manager can resize you photo files, as well as many other free programs. If you do edit your pictures, re-save them under a different name so you always have the orginal.

Maybe the photo isn't too big, it's the fish that's too big.

where are you fishing and what fishing for?
When we went, fishing in Valdez was red hot for Silvers. The bay was full of fish, boats, and fisherman. Soldatna was good for big rainbow and salmon. But very, very crowded. We splurged there and hired a boat to get away from the crowds on the bank. Expensive, but the 7 lb rainbow made it worth it to me. Homer was good for halibut. I did not go on the halibut trip, but the people that did had a good day. One couple had to drive back to Soldatana to buy a freezer to carry in the truck after that trip. Good day at Haines, fishing the outlet of the lake into the short river. But keeping a wary eye for bears and did not wander far from the truck.

I find, if you email the pictures to yourself and save them in a new file, they are now resized for acceptance by the Air Forums.


Don't take all the fish, leave some for the rest of us.

Years ago, while fishing in a new area, we weren't having any luck. While eating lunch, I read an article in a sports magazine that said, "If you aren't catching anything, go to the local bait shop and ask them what they're biting on." Well, duh...

The hot rig there was something a local made called a "Mack Special" (I'm guessing his name was Mack).

After lunch, back at the lake, it was like fishing in a hatchery. Still got that Mack Special in the bottom of my tackle box.

Or software has a limit of 1600 pixels for the largest dimension of any photo you wish to post. For example, 1200 x 1600 pixels is a safe resize considering a digicam image's 3:4 aspect ratio. 900 x 1200 pixels will chew up your allocated storage space at a slower rate.

I'm most familiar with PC use and either Paint or Windows Live Photo Gallery can be used to resize.

Yes, this works best for smartphones and the like. For me, emailing at 'medium' seems to fit within the size limits. I'm sure there are apps that can do a great job of resizing.

Didja get to Homer?

I've been in Alaska for a week or so now, and yes, the streams are all running high with snow melt. The natives say that as the weather cools it will slow down and the fishing will get better. But still there are lots of small freestone creeks with good fishing right now.

If you're passing through / near Anchorage, stop in to Sportsman's Warehouse and check out the "fishing conditions" board right inside the door ... they update it several times a day.

And then, yes - stop in to the local shop and ask for advice and spend some cash for the local specials. The locals sure know how to catch fishermen, if not fish!

On our way back now on our round trip from Portland, OR to Homer. Stopped in Stewart and Hyder a few days ago and it is still too early for the big fish. We did fish for Halibut near Homer and did quite well.
Funny thing though. We were fishing with local and were also catching some big Cod. They were throwing back like trash fish. The first couple I caught, I felt intimidated and threw them back. After the second one, I thought the hell with this and kept them with the halibut. We love cod, especially in tacos.

I couldn't live without cod fish tacos. We discovered them in AK last year and have been eating them ever since.

In the mid 60's, my best friend and his family moved to Vancouver BC and opened the first Mexican restaurant in Vancouver. The menu had to have pictures and descriptions of the items because most customers had never tried Mexican food before. They struggled to keep alive until they put co tacos on the menus. The business really took offf and they opened 2 more.
