How to resize pictures

#1

In order to keep the size of attachments (and also pictures in the Gallery) within reasonable limits, please resize the pictures you want to upload. Uploaded pictures have a max of 2 Mb and 1900 x 1600 size, but 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 is recommended and more than sufficient. Do not save pictures with .png extension.

With this program (irfanview) you can resize pictures (and edit and do a lot more). To resize click on Image in the menu and Resize/Resample next.

Next choose: file --> 'Save for web'.

Download Irfanview (free): http://www.irfanview.com

But there are many alternative programs.
