First, you can try to save it as a bitmap image(Do "save as" so you keep the original file format as well). Most photos from a digital camera are saved as jpeg's. The image quality when you save it as a bmp will decrease but it's the easiest way to make a photo smaller.

If it looks like junk when saved as a bmp, you can open the jpeg up in pretty much any program (Microsoft Paint even) and you should be able to make it smaller. In Paint, click on "Image" and then "Stretch/Skew" and you can adjust the "Stretch" measures to lower %'s. Try it a couple of times until it's a small enough file (I think this site allows for 19mb photos to be uploaded).

switching a jpeg photo to bmp would be increasing an images file size. A photo in jpeg format is compressed and does a good job of it without lossing image quality, sounds to me like all you need to do is decrease the dimension of the photo. Usually you can do a search and find free image editing software.

Larry,
I know that I'm getting in late on this matter, but ...

I send photos that I want to post to photobucket. I can "resize" them easily there through the edit function. It's simple and you can upload photos from there to forums like this quite easily.

Hi to all,

Here is an excerpt from the Site Rules for posting photos. The best formate to use is jpeg. Pictures are a resource hog and that is why photo size is so important. Posting smaller photos is a lot better than not being able to post pictures at all. The picture below is a 410 X 282 pixels. It has plenty of detail.

Frank
