unable to post photos( but I'm a computer nucklehead)
« on: June 16, 2007, 11:02:03 PM »
Hello,
I tried to attach a photo to a post with no luck. The site told me my file was too large at 192 KB.(it was just 1 photo)  I just posted my pics at the TC welcome wagon with no problem, and wanted to post them here also. Keep in mind that I am a total computer idiot. Can I send them to someone via e-mail for resizing ?  ???
 Thanks, Jimmy

You can post a linked image, the size doesn't matter then.  Just host it elsewhere.

Or shrink it to 100KB.  Google for "Windows XP Power Toy Image Resizer" (assuming you're using XP) and install that, it's an excellent quick resize tool.

Doug,
Thanks, I'm using Windows 98 and the hampsters are running as fast as they can.
 But see, size does matter.
