I know that i am not the sharpest knife in the box when it comes to posting pics but i seem to have mastered the posting part.

What i now need to know is how to make the pics smaller and turn them into jpegs.

I ask this becouse when i try to upload my pics the system states that the pic files are to large.

Use this site mate its free and easy to use www.photobucket.com When you have resized the pics right click them and save, while the save menu is up you can choose if you want them jpeg ect, ect. Any way easy peasy dude:thumbsup: No great drama.

Microsoft have a brilliant little bit of software for Windows XP that lets you resize any number of photos with one or two clicks.

Download Image Resizer from the link below.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe

When it's installed, if you right-click on an image file it'll give you the option to 'Resize Images'. From here, you get another menu, which lets you pick the size you want, for this forum use 640x480. Click OK and it'll then create a new image file with the picture at the smaller size, in the same folder as the original file. Hope that makes sense...

This gets more complex if they're not already JPEGs, but chaa's suggestion may help with that.
