UPDATE 7/23/2009!
I just found a site on the web that will help you resize your photos if you do not have the ability or know-how to do it on your computer!

If your file is over 5MB (C3VR's new upload size limit), you can try this online resize tool.  Select the "600 Pixels" option and you should be good to go!  After you click the Resize button, remember to right-click the resized image to save it to your hard drive, then choose that new file to upload here.

------------------------------------------------------------------


This may be of use to people looking to resize image files for use here on C3VR:

Try this...

If you are using Windows, depending on what version of it you have, you can use "Paint":
* It should be on the Start Menu under Programs/Accessories.
(You can also chose "Run" from the Start Menu, then type in "mspaint" and press enter).
1. Start Paint
2. On the "File" menu, select "Open"
3. Browse to the location of the file you want to resize, and select it by double-clicking it (or click it once, then click the "Open" button).
4. On the "Image" menu, select "Stretch/Skew".
5. In the "Stretch" box, enter 50 for both the Horizontal and Vertical Values. Leave the other values alone, then click "OK"
6. On the "Image" menu, select "Attributes".
7. Make sure that "Pixels" is selected in the "Units" box.
8. Look at the value in the "Width" box. You want it to be between 400 and 500. (And the "Size on Disk" less than 500,000 bytes).
* If the width is still higher than 500, click "Cancel" then go back to step 5 and try again. (You may need to use a number lesser or greater than 50 to get it right. You should get the hang of it pretty quick).
* If the width is between 400 and 500, then click Cancel and go on to step 9.
* If the width is less than 400, you may want to click Cancel, then on the "Edit" menu, select "Undo". Then go back to step 5 and use a number higher than 50.
9. On the "File" menu, select "Save As..." DO NOT SELECT "SAVE" or you will overwrite your original file!!!
10. In the "Save As" box, enter a new file name, make sure the location is correct, make sure the Save As Type is .JPG, then click Save.


If you have "Microsoft Photo Editor", try this:
* You should find it on the Start menu, under Program/Microsoft Office/Microsoft Office Tools.
1. Start Microsoft Photo Editor.
2. On the "File" menu, select "Open"
3. Located the file you want to open, then double-click it (or click it once, then click "Open")
4. On the "Image" menu, select "Resize..."
5. On the Resize box, make sure "Units" is set to "Pixels"
6. Enter 400 in the Width box.
7. Click "OK"
8. On the "File" menu, select "Save As..." (DO NOT SELECT "SAVE" or you will overwrite your original file!!)
9. Enter a name for the file, select a location, , make sure the Save As Type is .JPG, then click "Save".

Microsoft Office 2003 has "Microsoft Office Picture Manager", and will do the same thing.
I haven't used this.....didn't know I even had it!
Thanx for wakin me up.

I have been using "Paint" to re-size, and it works very well, as it also reduces the size of the file, as far as upload requirements, but still allows a full veiw.

She does like the car but I was being sarcastic about her loving it in the front yard.

This is what I get when I try to add my signature.  The pic is uploaded and is under 500, but it won't show up!   This can't be that hard... 

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a005e'

Invalid use of Null: 'replace'

Dennis, make sure the title of the pic does NOT have any weird punctuation, such as quotes("") and such,. That will make it invalid, I think.
Just for fun, can you copy/paste the URL here in a reply, just so we can see if it is a miss-spelling/punctuation/ID error?

It should look something like this on your "home page"

Well, it comes up ok, and I can see the car(very nice, BTW!). It does need to be smaller for a sig pic, tho.
It should work, even at that size.
Do you have this stored on your "Personal Home Page", or on your "Personal File Folder"? I'm not sure, but I think pics for your sig need to be stored on your "File Folder".
You might have to contact Norsky to get the details sorted out...

now that Jim has fixed everything, i deleted the large pic. Adams' Apple38951.8297916667
