Install image resizer. Double click on the .exe file and follow the prompts for installation.
Find an image you'd like to resize and right click on it.
Select Resize Pictures from the menu.
Select a pixel size you would like to resize to from the menu. If you click the Advanced button, you can select a custom size. Enter a height and a width in pixels, and the utility will shrink the file to a size that fits the more restrictive of the two dimensions while keeping the image correctly proportioned. 640X480 is a good size for smaller images. If you need to post high detail images like drawings from books, just send me a PM and I can FTP them to the site.
Unless you select otherwise, the resized picture will be saved in a new file in the same folder on your hard drive.
