    I also use 'faststone' for resizeing but the small problem I have found with it is if I have cropped or lightened an image with another program and then renamed the file, even by simply adding a letter/number as a suffix/prefix I have found it seems to lock up but it seems fine if you resize and them manipulate the image. :-k
    I may have a play around with these alternatives though.
    Thanks,
    Neil.

    For nearly all Windows users pictures can be opened in 'Windows picture and fax viewer'. Open up a picture are click the edit button on the bottom, (second from right.) This opens the picture in paint. Click on 'Image' on the top toll bar and go to 'stetch/skew.' You can now change the picture size easily.

    If you have a mac and don't fancy spending any money, I have found SmallImage to be quite good.

    I've got Adobe Photoshop, but I have very little practice with it, having only just gone digital with the camera. What do you have to do to get a photo on a message? I've noticed they are very large when downloaded from the camera.

    Write your message and then when you want to insert the image click the (Img) box in the top toolbar, scroll down to Upload attachment bar, browse your files for the pic then select add the file, then select submit.

    Thanks for that, lickeybanker. I'm assuming you have to do the compression first?

    When I want to add a pic I usually adjust to around 72 Dpi and resize to 7" x 5", it seems to work ok. I look forward to seeing your results.

    Somewhere in Nat Pres history, the maximum size for an image that can be included in a post was defined. Having had a couple of pictures removed from a post and not being a regular picture poster, can someone please refesh all our memories on what is the maximum acceptable size is?

    I'm not sure there is a fixed size, but a size whereby there is no need to scroll sideways or down in order to see the whole thing. 800 x 600 or whatever the height to maintain the correct aspect ratio seems to be the norm..
