OK guys, have a good laugh,
I'm proficient with Autocad, Solidworks & many CAD Dwg packages - I can even use email - just!
But - can anyone tell me how to (easily) re-size pictures for posting on the forum? The 'file to large' prompt is almost resident on my screen!:smash:

Ask that Nic Wing.
He's posted some monsters in his time but seems to have slimmed it down screen-wise.

http://www.picresize.com/ looks like it might do the job.
For the sake of those on netbooks, may I politely suggest a width of 800 pixels. ;)

I upload my pics to this site http://www.tinypic.com (http://www.tinypic.com/) and I set it to resize for message board. Then it spits back several tags to embed with, I just cut-n-paste the one for message boards.

Nice free site...lets you stash pics in albums and such.
The site also strips out all the EXIF tags so that people can't track you using the embedded GPS location on most pictures taken with devices with active GPS.

If you use iphoto or similar photo management software you can just export the pictures and choose the size you want them to be i.e. max 600 pixels etc
