here's a refresher course:

before adding applications for resizing, check to ensure you don't already own the equivalent.

right click on your image.

if it's an image you own, you'll have an option to "open with". Fly over this and see what your options are.
you might see software you loaded when you got your digital camera.
you might see a photo editor (or two) you didn't even know you had.
you might see microsoft photo editor (this would be the best choice).

any of these will have a resizing tool that is easy to use. normally it will be found under the "image" tab in your editor or organizer.

you may have an option to change from inches.
make the larger dimension no greater than 750 pixels. (height or width) dial up users won't love you, but they won't hate you.

vista users can use "paint" for resizing, the new version has that tool, works on percentages , check the size of your edited image by right clicking on it and opening "properties", you'll then have a feel for the percentage you need to use.

Here is an easy resizer for XP…free:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... ySetup.exe

Here’s the equivalent for vista…a tad more laborious:
http://www.vso-software.fr/products/image_resizer/

when you close the application, you'll normally be asked if you want to "keep the changes to such & such". if you say yes, the image will be replaced with your new (resized image). you find it right where it was before.

if you wish to have both images saved, the resized as well as the original size, you'll need to save the new (resized) one.

This is an experiment to see if I can figure out how to post an image, having read this thread and knowing how to put pictures on photo bucket. What I understand is that I just paste the url from the picture on photo bucket in the middle of the img tag, like this:
Image

Then look at "preview" to see if it worked.

It did!!!

Is it the same procedure to post a pic under my log in name? If not, how do you do that part?

Nope - that's your "avatar" under your user control panel. PM sent.

OK, that little Code: button is the niftyest thing I've seen yet. Why didn't I see it before now? Oh well. Thanks for this thread mountaindave.

OK, if you've gotten this far, you can already post a pic. I just wanted to add a couple of pic to make everything more graphic. I mean what's a post about pictures that doesn't have a lot of pictures, right?

Anyway, here's how to use Photobucket to insert a photo:
First load the pic in Photobucket.
Next start a new topic or post a reply to one already started.
Now, go to Photobucket and on the main page you should see your pics with some code underneath. Something like this:
Image
Photobucket has changed a few things so, the three code lines under the pic are different now, but we're interested in the one titled IMG Code. Click on it and it will be highlighted. Right click on the highlighted code and copy it.
Now go back to the post you started and right click in the text window and and click paste. This will insert your pic's code complete with the img commands already in there. No need to highlight anything and click any other buttons.

Don't forget that you can embed Youtube videos, also.

Oh yeah! That embedded Youtube thing is super nifty.
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrX67uKsnJw[/youtube]

Here's what it looks like:
Code:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrX67uKsnJw[/youtube]


You have to use the html code in the gray box on the right when you are on the Youtube site. Videos are much better when inserted in this way.

Hey Jay, is there a way that we can group our photos here on SGW so they are easy to find? Like a user account?

That feature is available in our Photo Gallery, but I hesitate to enable it. Reason being is I'm afraid it would be abused and fill up with 'girl in a bikini' type pics.

MarkA,
First of all you copied the thumbnail and not the actual photo. This is what you put on the SGW photo page:
Image

Now, what are the settings on your camera? Is is set to take the highest quality pics? I wonder if it isn't being shrunk by the site somehow?

Here's one of mine at 4MP:
