    How to post images, upload profile pictures and resize images.

    If you are having trouble posting images on the forums, galleries or uploading your profile picture the methods below should show you the dos and don’ts of posting images. First off you must have an image/graphic editor.

    For a free Image Resize tool, download the Power Toys Image Resizer from Microsoft. http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...ertoySetup.exe

    Common image/graphic editors are; Adobe Photoshop, Corel Photo-Paint Microsoft Paint, Jasc Paint Shop Pro

    Since Microsoft Paint is found on all Windows Operating systems I have demonstrated how to resize and save an image as a .jpeg.

    Steps to resize picture with Microsoft Paint:
    Open Microsoft Paint( Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Paint)
    Open picture(File -> Open -> (locate your picture file) then click Ok after you select)
    Resizing picture by using (Image -> Stretch/Skew -> Change horizontal or vertical according to your need)
    Select File >Saves As> Select “.jpeg” and click Save.
