I'm trying to attach an underwater pic I took of a fish but of course the shot is too large to upload. Anyone know how I crop the photo to keep it under the max size allowed for attachment here without blurring the image of the fish??

Okay, I'll go mess around with that. I've got approx. 15 photos of fish I took underwater while in Hawaii and I have no idea what half of them are. I want to post them to see if I can stump you on the id!!

lol, another way to resize an image is to open it up in MS Paint (old-school), and choose the 'Image' drop-down menu then the Stretch/Skew option. Then just put 50% or 25% for the horizontal and vertical stretch, and it will shrink the image down!

Wow. It's that easy?! You don't lose the quality? My pictures aren't that clear to begin with. They were taken with a cheapie Fuki waterproof disposable. I really want to know what a couple of the fish are that I saw. The other bummer was that as soon as I got into the water I went crazy right away with the camera. I was so excited by what I was seeing that I clicked off the pictures in about five minutes. Of course, fifteen minutes later I see a perfectly HUGE stunning Parrot fish. I really would have liked to have had a picture of him. Next trip....

Pics always look less blurrier the smaller they are, from what I've seen.

let's see the pics! I'll bet you $1000000 that I can name every single fish that you have a pic of from your Hawaii trip.... Hehehe....considering my full-time job is a tropical fish collector here on Oahu.... ;)

When I dive all I see is black and white....

Hummm...about a dollar? My pics are soooooo bad you might not be able to even clearly see that it's a fish you're looking at! What type of Parrot fish did I see that was HUGE, was mostly green & blue and swims very fast? I also saw a fish that looked to have an angel shaped body with long fins, and looked to be black & a dark blue? It was under the coral shelf over off Tunnels in Kauia and it darted away pretty quickly so I couldn't get a photo. I've looked and looked all over the web and can't find it. Maybe it wasn't black & blue and just appeared to look that way because it was under the cover of the shelf?

On another note: My seatmate on the flight back from Lihue to Honolulu was Bethany Hamilton. She told me she was attacked of Tunnels. Had I known that I'm not sure I would have been in the water there. She's a pretty gutzy gal to be back in the water surfing. She's a very nice person and I feel fortunate to have met her while I was there and have her share her story with me.

the parrot fish was more than likely a regal parrot. The blue ones are the males, females are pinkish. And yes she is brave for going back in after that tiger took off her arm!
