Do any of you tech heads know how to explain to a remedial student like myself how to resize photos in iphoto (I don't have photoshop or the like) so I can upload them to this site and others. It didn't seem to be a problem before but now it is and I don't think anything was changed on my camera.

Phil, I'm sure some others will come along with better apps for normal Windows users. I use an app called Gimp on linux to do resizing.

However, I've started cheating and uploading my photos to flickr. What's great is that they've got a picker to let you choose what size photo to show.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/7508761@N0 ... otostream/

Notice there I can pick what size I want. Then, once I've picked it, the link provided for "Download the Medium 640 size photo" (if I picked 640 as the size) can be used for the site by placing it in the img button here.

So for the medium sized photo above I'd click the "Img" button and put in the link flickr is providing "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8212/8419368005_27a85e9aa6_z_d.jpg"

Hope that helps some and I'm sure others will have their own methods coming up.

"I use an app called Gimp on linux to do resizing. "

Hail, fellow Linux user! The other day I went to retrieve some documents from an old Windows PC and I kept on asking myself, "Why did I ever DO this to myself?" It was awful! And of course the thing started out with the obligatory and infuriating multiple hits of "You have unuded icons on your desktop" and more. Ugh!

who ever is in charge of the website needs to select auto resize.

that will automatically reduce the picture to fit the screen.

Phil - you don't need to spend any money. If all you want to do is resize, Windows Paint is included with Windows and while it is a horribly limited image editor, it will resize and rotate images just fine. If you want something more robust, Paint.net is a free and open-source tool that will probably meet most folks needs for image editing, including, of course, resizing and rotation.

By the way, - HELLO RICK!! Haven't seen you 'round these parts in ages!!
