      I am having trouble attaching jpg's to forums. I am resizing very, very small and they are downloading to the Gallery. Please help. Thanks Debbie

      Debbie, which program do you use???
      If you upload your pictures to PhotoBucket (make sure they are max. 600×600) you should be able to post them here. Just copy the IMG code and paste it right in the forum.

        I don't use Photobucket,but a program that came w/my computer. it sizes it to 600×480 but I had to custom resize to 500×500 to get it small enough for the forums. I used to be able to use the 600×480 size before but for some reason it is not listing on the forums at this size (only the Gallery). Thanks for the help

        I'm sorry I couldn't help you out. Photobucket is a free program, you might want to take a look at it.

          Debbie, I use PSE to resize to 600x whatever matches save it to my desktop and load it into the forums from there

              I'm an outlier and I don't know why, habit I guess. I use MS Picture Manager (comes bundled with MS Office); go to photo edit and click on resize. Click on the fourth option, percentage of original, and use the down arrow in the box. You will see the new size as the bottom number undeeath. Stop when both numbers are at 600 or below.

              And how is this for a bunch of suggestions? Seriously, I hope some of this helps, the good thing is that there are really a variety of ways to get it to work.

                I honestly usually just copy and paste them. *cheating*

                    LOL, that's why I finally decided to go with MS Editor.
