Good evening all, the computer that I'm now using would appear to not have a picture resizer. Can someone post me a link please. The one I used to have I just right clicked on the piccy then chose the size. Can anyone help please? Ta!

The one I use now is called PIXresizer, and is a free download, but watch out for the rest of the rubbish that they try to force on you at the same time. It took me an age to get rid because I wasn't savvy.

Can this thread be a sticky topic somewhere? This question seems to be asked every two weeks.

I use paint.net. Its free and does lots of useful things like crop and rotate as well as resize.

It would also be helpful if someone (kind moderator?) could remind me, at least, what the limit size is for attaching pictures to posts.

It would be more helpful if picture resizing software had a setting for file size, Ive yet to find one that you can set to 250Kb and resize, usually have to guess at a percentage reduction and then click properties. (Am I missing something BTW)

If you change your picture's resolution to 640x480 pixels, it will usually (but not always.... :mad: ) end up under 250Kb. It also looks better on GSC for people with smaller screens.

Frankly I prefer Fotosizer. Down load from here; http://www.fotosizer.com/
Its a batch resizer or individual as the user wishes, it's on your own PC and the size you want is adjustable... you can get the commercial version but I just use the freebie and ignore the nag screen that pops up. No junk or malware comes with this either.
