Some folks have inquired about the best way to resize pics before posting them here. Many times they are too large to properly fit page width or so small that it"s hard to make out detail. So below is a link to what I think is a program that should help out. It"s called VSO Image Resizer and it integrates with the Windows operating system. When you have a picture (whether it"s open or just an icon) and you would like to resize it, you would just right click on it and it will give you the option to adjust it to many different sizes. A good size for pics here is 640 X 480 pixels or less. Best part about this program is that it"s free...

If anyone has links to software that they use for editing pics, feel free to post the link to the software company that makes it along with the name of the software. DO NOT post links to illegal sites or to your own personal sites. Now having said that, just to let you know, darrklim2 uses Microsoft Paint which is included in all versions of Windows operating systems. I use Microsoft Picture Manager that comes with Office 2003/2007.

Also, Microsoft has an image resizer that works well and integrates with the Windows XP OS..

Resizer

I downloaded this Microsoft add-on and it is wonderful.  You download the add-on and it goes right into your Windows XP operating system.  You simply right click on any photo and now in the selections given is a new selection "resize pictures".  Click on resize pictures and a new box will appear, choose small or medium, Jeff like the medium as he likes bigger pictures. The small looks good also. Click OK and it is done.  It automatically saves the picture with the word (small) or (medium) in the file name as a new file and does not destroy the original picture.  I love this thing!!!!  Thank you.

Yes, that"s exactly right, that"s Microsoft Picture Manager that does that process in Outlook.

Rick has found an image resizer for Windows Vista/7. You can also use the Photo Gallery that's in Windows Essentials from Microsoft (its free too but don't care for it much)

Also, for Windows 7, you can get the image resizer "clone" at this site.

This one is like the one for Windows XP by Microsoft and its easy to use (easier than Photo Gallery without the bloat)
