    Resizing pictures

    I just started a blog thread on the bicarb startup and have lots of pics to share, but they are all too high resolution. How can I downsize them with Windows 7? In XP I had a handy little right click tab that said resize. Not so on Windows 7.

    I *know* you can link to a photobucket site, but never had one of those accounts.

    Looking for the easiest/ quickest method here, so if there's way to resize would prefer that. If not, will probably need the for dummies version of how to link off site.

    Thanks!

    Re: Resizing pictures

    Really it is better to host the pictures on something like Photobucket, Picasa, Flickr, etc because then you can embed and link the higher resolution , larger pictures. using the IMG tag.

    And then you are not using the forum memory and bandwidth.

    Here is a link which may help:

    The easiest method to me IS setting up a photobucket account.

    Failing that, perhaps searching for "Irfanview", installing that, and go to Image/resize-resample and decrease the size there. When you resize pictures, you drastically lose quality, but I'm sure you know that

    I use a free program called pixresizer. If you use a hosting site and then later delete the pictures they aren't here anymore either. That could be good or bad depending on your point of view.

    Re: Resizing pictures

    You have to post the link to the picture itself ... not the web page. It needs to end in .jpg

    Right click on the picture in the webpage and select copy image URL and paste that in the IMG tag.

    Re: Resizing pictures

    ok, well, that posts a link to the album, but how do I insert an actual picture that shows up in the thread? And for the record, I'm researching this, but haven't found the answer yet.



    I got it! Now if I can remember what I did...

    Re: Resizing pictures

    If you can put the link in a browser and it ends in JPG and you ONLY see the picture, then that is the right link to put in the post.
