    Dave - Saltspring Is.? Sorry not there.

    If you need to re-size, this is what I do...

    1. Open the picture with "Paint" - I believe that it's an embedded program with Windows XP.

    2. Click on "Image" in the top menu bar.

    3. From the drop-down menu selections click on "Attributes" and make note of the picture size to see how far you have to shrink it. You have several choices in there as to how to view the size of the pic - choose "Pixels"

    3. The second choice down in the drop-down menu is "Stretch/Skew" - click on that one and a box comes up to let you choose how small (in percentages) that you wish to shrink the picture.

    Work within the top box labelled "Stretch" and input something like 75% in both the "Horizontal" and "Vertical" areas. It takes just a little bit of experimentation and you can get quite creative with it.

    If you want to "crop" the photo just go to the bottom right corner of the pic and hover there with your mouse cursor, you'll see the pointer turn into a double ended arrow if you get right on the corner of the pic. This will allow you to "drag" the edges of the photo inward (both horiz. and vert. at the same time) so that you can down-size the the picture without losing the original size of the photo subject.

    You can then choose "Flip/Rotate" from the Image drop-down menu to move the picture around so that you can crop it from whichever edge you choose.

    4. When you're happy with the size of the pic, go up to the menu bar and choose "File" - choose "Save As" from the drop-down menu and give you photo a name such as "0012 Cropped" and save it. This way you don't loose the original photo and can reuse or keep it on file, yet you have the "altered" shot for posting.

    5. after you've done the re-sizing thing, just follow the steps in the above post to get your photo into the thread or reply.

    All this sounds difficult and time consuming but it takes longer to explain it than it does to actually do it. Besides, it brings out the artist in you.

    When I works, I works hard; when I sits, I sits loose; and when I thinks, I falls asleep.
