Hey guys, I have a question about when I post pictures, they usually come out too big and don't fit on the page and was wondering how i shrink them
i have tried to magnify it less when i save it on paint but that still doesn't work.

When you go to upload a picture (I usually use Imageshack... IMO It's the best and fastest) it has an option to resize.. You will want to either use the thumbnail or the one for messages and boards.

EDIT: To clearify.. On Imageshack tick the resize image button before uploading.. You should pick either 320x240 OR 640x480.. 150x112 will work as well but that's small..

Ok thanks, i was uploading them off of photobucket, i mean is there a way to resize it on the computer?

Of course.. Regular old PAINT from microsoft wont get the job done though. You can use photoshop or GIMP..

Gimp is free and is very similar to photoshop.. Google it.. :)

EDIT: Actually, I think you can resize in Paint.. Just drag the handles around the picture to the size you want.. Paint phailz.. :D

Excuse me Speedy, but I wouldn't of done any of my pictures if it wasn't for paint. :P Ker you can resize in paint. Hit the tool that has a rectangle but it's border is dashed lines.... It should be near the top. Move a box around what you want to crop and then hit "cut." This will temporarily delete the image you want to have. Now hit CTRL+A and then hit the "delete" key, this will get rid of the rest of your unwanted image. Now hit CTRL+V and you will past what you cutted out earlier. Now go to the borders of the entire paint window and you'll see some dots around it. Use those dots and make sure to fit the paint window to only show the image you wanted to keep. Then save and ur done :P
