I am a computer idiot:

How does one make pictures "smaller" to post on the board here? I try to upload pics and I get the message that my picture is "too large" or something.

Help!

I have messed around with picture size on this forum, and don't think it allows you to re-size photos.

I have two ways that I generally resize images.

The first involves using a photo editing program (Paintshop Pro or GIMP which is free) and using the resize features there.

The second and probably more practical way for message board posting purposes is to create an Imgur account. You can upload from your computer or the web and there is a resize functionality after the upload.

Also, not sure if the limit is on the dimensions of a picture or the file size but Imgur should be able to adjust both.
