I just wanted to post a thread about resizing pictures so you can upload them to the forum. You can use photoshop but that is an expensive program. There however is another solution called "Gimp" which is an opensource program which is free. I haven't used it much but I did try the scaling image part of it and it works.
Here is a link to download Gimp:
GIMP - Downloads
And here is the user manual link:
GNU Image Manipulation Program
Hope this helps people, and if you have questions go ahead and I will try to help.
Awesome! I'm going to try it. Thanks so much for posting this info! :-)
if all you wana do is resize pic this place is vary ez
Resize Images online
Another GREAT program for resizing pictures is called IR Fanview. Download it here:
Also, i have gimp, but i use it for different attempts at graphic editing and such. :P
To resize a picture in irfanview just open a photo in it.
thwn go to Image>Resize/Resample
You can type in any dimensions you'd like, but it looks nicer if you keep the dimensions ratio. (There's a checkbox for that :P)
Paint is probably the easiest and anyone who runs Windows OS should have it.
Under Image choose Stretch and Skew. In the dialogue box under Stretch there is a field for Horizontal and Vertical. Simply reduce it to 50% (or more depending on size) and save as any of the formats permitted (bmp, jpg, gif) on the forum. If the image is still large just repeat the process to reduce it more.
Here's a visual aide I created -
