    My photo is too large to upload into the photo gallery so I can post it. I tried to reduce the size but when it posted it's about the size of a stamp! Can you help me reduce the file to required standards?

    thank-you,

    It looks like you've linked to the thumbnail of the photo and not the photo itself. Is that what you wanted to do?

    However, after looking at the full size photo it looks like it's no bigger. It's still pretty small. Is that the size you wanted?

    How DO you resize. I have uploaded about three pictures, and I thought I had them at the right size when I saved them they are either HUGE or thumbnail.... is there a trick??

    Thanks in advance

    Try uploading to www.photobucket.com. It is VERY easy to use and does have a simple size edit function. Give it a try.

    Hi Bill,

    I was trying to post a photo on the "favorite DVC photo thread" and was abit challenged by it.

    I've saved the photobucket site on My Favorites and next time will try to do it myself ;)

    Thank you for this tech site!
