My suggestion and instructions here are based around using this website:  ** Please log in to view **

(The link above opens the Site in quick 'Fixed Mode' at 1280 width, to use the full interface as below, once page opens, click 'Return to Normal Mode')


The instructions are: 


Click Browse – and select your picture from your computer, the click the Continue button.

A new screen will open – showing your picture. (This may take some time if your picture is a large memory size) you now use one of the following methods depending on what you want to use the picture for,

A: To use your picture in the forum you want the picture to remain a good size (in its dimensions)

Click the drop down menu under section 2 – 'resize my picture'.

Select Fit to screen: 1280 resolution.


B: To use your picture as an avatar you want the picture reduced to 140 pixels width in size

Click the drop down menu under section 2 – 'resize my picture'.

Select Custom Size.

In the width box enter 140. Ignore the other box.

Then in both cases

Scroll to the bottom of the page – look for the text box where it says Max Filesize.

Type in 900

Click 'I'm done resize my picture'

A new screen will open

Click 'Save to Disk'   - (NOT the blue download button - which is an advert).

The resized picture will then download to your computer, usually with the same filename but prefixed 'rsz_' and will be suitable to upload into your post or use as an avatar.

Pay attention to the file download location on your computer so you can find it when you want to upload to the forum!

Click Home to resize another.
