    Default picture upload

    I have been trying to get one of my pictures to upload and an hour later, i'm still trying. It's too large a file to upload and when I re-sized, it didn't help. Guess my digital is taking too clear of pictures, lol. So, if i have uploaded it to a certain website online, can i post a link to it if it mentions the name of the website?
    Thanx for your time

    Hi Connie,
    You just need to shrink your photos down to 72 dpi and make sure the largest length is not more than 700 pixels.

    Cheers,

    Its really easy to resize images in the window's "paint" program. Just open the image in Paint, then go up to "image/stretch skew" and make it smaller, then do a save-as to save a smaller version. In newer versions of paint, its actually even easier, but the resizing instructions are pretty much the same (go to the top menu bar, and find the "resize" option) Good luck!
