I recommend the great freeware program from http://www.irfanview.com
Just select Image... Resize.
But if you don't want to install anything new, you can use the Microsoft Paint program (assuming you use Windows)...Start... Programs... Accessories... Paint
Then open your original image:File... Open...
Then reduce the image size:Image... Stretch/Skew
... enter a Horizontal and Vertical number of about 25%(Let's assume you have a 3 megapixel or 4 megapixel camera which probably gives an original image of about 1500x2000... so if you want this to be 480x640, then you'd reduce to around 25%-30%)http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/505/paintresize4za.gif
Then select the JPG file type:File.. Save As.. *.JPG
Then upload your attachment to the forum.Note that in order to see the attachment options, instead of Quick Reply, you'll need to click the "Post Reply" button at the bottom of the thread:http://188.8.131.52/images/buttons-white/reply.gif
Even easier... upload your picture to http://imageshack.us
, click the button that says "resize image to 480x640 for message boards"
, then post the link that they give you...http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/236/imageshack8bc.png
if you put the link to the image between "img
" tags, then the image will show up in your post...[img]http://imageshack.us/yourimage.jpg[/img]
