Can anyone tell me how to post pics on here?
I allways get a message that says my files are too large.
I went into my edit program,and cropped them ,but are still too large.
How do I downsize my pics to post them ?

It's hard to tell you how to do that but, look for a resize option on your program, if you find one, the size to look for is 640x480 mine also says large web picture. The one that I use is Microsoft Office Picture Manager.

Left click the picture and see if the "open with" option is there that has MS office picture manager.

Right click on a file (picture)  click edit.  Should go to your paint program. Click resize.  Reduce the percentages till it's below 500 KP. Click save as, and save as, or click exit. If you click exit it will ask you if you want to save changes. Once you click yes it's a done deal.

To post multiple files in a single post, click the plus where it says attachments.

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

Assuming you're using Windows, download Irfanview - (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links) IIRC

Free, and once you have it,you won't be able to live without it. Irfanview is the only reason I have Windows on this Linux box.
