Directions on how to post a picture
I noticed that there have been a few people here on the forums who wanted to post a picture but didn't know how. I talked to the mods and they gave the ok for me to make a thread on how to post pictures.
1) Right click the picture you want and save the photo in the "My Pictures" section of your desktop.
2) Then go to photobucket.com to host the picture. Click on the browse button to find the picture you just saved. After you find it click on the upload button.
3) The last code it list ([IMG] code) is the one you want. Copy the code then paste it on here and it will give you a picture.
How to reduce the size of a picture--easily!
The easiest way I know how to reduce the size of a picture is to open it with the Paint program. Then go to "Image," then "Stretch/Skew." You can adjust the size by whatever percentage you want. I usually start with 50%. If that is still too big, undo it and try 25 or 35%. But you always want to undo it first before trying another size because if you reduce it to 50%, then 25% (of that 50%), you will lose a lot of the resolution. Save the reduced picture to your computer (I use 50% in the filename, to keep it separate) then upload from there.
Hope this helps. ;)
