I have been waiting for months to get started sharing our finds and projects but I cant get my pictures to upload ( TOOO BIG) . I dont want to have to resize on my camera because we take alot of pics and make them into larger pictures, is there a way just to resize before I post?

I'm a real DIY'er but this problem is making me want to find another 'junker' website in which to share my ideas and find others ideas! Barkingdogs, I think I'll download and see if I have any luck there. Posted: 5:11 pm on April 6th

I don't have to do any resizing with my photos by using these settings. Also, it allows you to have way more photos on your SD cards too, so double the benefits.

If you use Microsoft Office on your computer I can give you instructions to change the size using "Paint".

Click Start
Open (Find where your photo is saved)
Change veritical AND horizontal size to 30%
Save As (Something different so you don't alter the size of your original photo).

Hope this helps and sorry for the frustrations. I want to welcome the new members and thank our regulars for helping out too!!

Take care,

If you need to add to your profile, just click on your name and then there should be a button to "edit settings" should be able to change/add from there.
