    Default Images

    Been trying to upload images recently, wonder if any computer ppl can help, i used to make my images to about 670x500 pixels and that was about 75KB (less than 100KB as required) but now when I resize i seem to have to put them to about 200 pixels, which is tiny in comparison, just to get the space below 100... the original size of 670x500 is now saying 988KB. And its the sam camera, same everything. Theres no point in uploading tiny pics u cant even see and i cant figure it out. Anyone?

    Maybe lower the settings in the camera, down to 3.2/4 mege pixles. Know very little on this matter but it might help.

    Go to Microsoft site and look at the downloads section for the Image Resizer download. Its only a small program that only takes a few secs - on broadband - to download. Then run it. When you open a photo and you want to resize it just right click then select the resize option from the drop down menu. It then gives you the chance to resize it to either set sizes or Custom size. Just sort the size you want and select it and there you are - done. Don't worry as your original photo stays original size as the program just makes you a copy of it to the size that you chose. Any probs let me know.
    Cheers,

    Ok, still having probs with this, I've been using Photo plus 4, its been fine for al the other pics I've ever posted on this site.

    I took a photo on my phone,

    1632 x 1224 pixels, 338KB. Fair dos, so I resized,
    600 x 450 pixels, now its 791KB!
    So resized again to 300 x 225, back down again to 198 KB, I'm stumped.

    I've looked at all my previous pics I've used to post on here, and they're 670 x 500 and only like 75.7KB.



    This tiny pic I posted earlier today was as big as i could get it without going over 100KB (its 95KB)

    Wink

    go here , click on the 11th download on the right hand side of the page (image resizer)..
    Download it and open and save it..

    Once its downloaded, go into "my pictures" and "right click" on any normal sized pic....you will be given the option to "resize picture"..click that, now you will be given the option of what size to "resize" too..I always use --option 1, 640 x 480...just highlight the circle to the left (so the blank hole has a green dot in it) and then select "ok"..A newer version of your pic will appear at the bottom of your "pictures", this will prob say the name of the pic plus, ..........(small).jpg.
    Use that pic when selecting an image on the sites image uploader......

    Hope it works for you...
