Its okay, when it comes to some computer programs I'm computer dumb too.

Paint Shop Pro does not come automatically on computers it is a program you must buy, however I'm not sure but there might be a computer program already avaiable on yours.

However, you might be able to download Paint Shop Pro but it is illegal i believe or brrow a friends copy and never register it (again illegal),

However I'm not sure about all this so you might want a second opinion on this all.

Hi LovelyScrubs!

If you use windows XP you can get a free add on that allows you to resize photos.  Go to this page http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx and download & install image resizer.

When you've installed it then go to the image(s) that you want to resize, select them & right click.  You should get a resize pictures option near the top of the menu, select that & then choose the size that you want, press OK.  It'll resize your picture, making a smaller copy of it and putting it in the same folder as the original, so if you wanted to resize a picture called 'Skirt.jpg' you'd end up with both that and (something like 'skirt (small).jpg in the same folder.

Hope this helps!

If all else fails you can resize pictures using good ol' MS Paint. 

Open the picture then select Image from the menu bar and then Stretch/Skew from the menu.

If you want to make the picture bigger enter matching values greater than 100 in the fields marked Horizontal and Vertical in the Stretch section.  If you want to shrink the picture, enter matching values less than 100 in those fields.  Don't enter anything in the Skew section. 

Click OK.  If you like what you see, select File and then Save to replace the existing picture with the new one, or Save As... to specify a new name for the resized picture.  If you don't like what you see, change the size again or select File and Exit to abort the process.

So, this seems like a dumb question, but exactly what size images can we upload? I am going to to try a trial and error method for now (reduce it to 75%...still too big?...resize to 50%....nope....etc.) but it would be nice to know for reference what the actual numbers (pixels? is that even what they are called?) are...

I am a doofus.

No, not a Doofus, just learning.  

If you're uploading the picture to Craftster's picture hosting there's a 2 MB size limit for each individual picture.  How big a picture that is depends on the resolution of the picture (how tightly are the pixels pack together).  I can't give you a formula for reduction; with me it's pretty much resize, check the size and adjust more if it's still more than 2 MB.

I can't say what are the size limitations at other picture hosting sites because I have no idea.

Hope this was helpful.

I use the same route as Fidget.  I resize it by 100% since most of my pics are taken with my cameraphone there's no real difference between my pictures.  Plus it's waaaay easier on computers (and less irritating in general) to have smaller pics.
