Resizing photos for this forum

It’s obvious that many of the posters selling stuff here don’t have a good idea how to size their photos so they show up correctly within a standard computer screen.  If you have Microsoft Office you likely have Microsoft Office Picture Manager.  If so once you have taken a photo right click on it and select “open with”.  Then select Microsoft Office Picture Manager.  Click on "edit pictures…" on top of the screen & the edit pictures menu will open.  Click on "resize" & select “Percentage of original width x height:".  Now use the up and down arrows to resize the photo.  I typically resize photos to be posted here to no larger than 900 or so pixels wide.  Once you have resized the photo click on “OK” then don’t forget to save it by clicking on “file” then click on “save”.  Here’s an example of a photo that is 899 pixels wide.

If that's too large for the item being sold, which the 1st photo below is at 900 pixels wide, scale it down some using the same process.  If you have other photo editing software, resize your photos to similar pixel widths.  BTW, the 2nd photo is reduced to 602 pixels wide & the 3rd photo is 403 pixels wide.
