as soon as you get the size down the the max allowable the answer is yes. You are doing the hard part which is shrinking them down. Loading the up is quite simple just remember that the Max Size : 732.4 KB per photo if you upload to the photo gallery. Shoot for something slightly smaller and you should have no problems.

If you post on the forum i.e. in a message then a JPEG is limited to 97.7 KB

Here is a Windows XP method........ not necessarily "conventional"

I used to work in PC support and have taught many a PC challenged user this one. Bearing in mind either they don't want to install/learn additional software or the company I worked for didn't allow additional software etc. So here is way you can get Windows XP to do it automatically for you......

-Right click on the image/s then select "Send to" then "Mail Recipient"
-Wait a moment and the "Send Pictures via E-mail" dialogue box pops up. Make sure the option "Make all my pictures smaller" is selected and then press "OK"
-Wait a moment while XP generates the email (including resized pictures).
-Once the email dialogue box pops up you will notice the pictures and their reduced sizes. 9 times out of 10 this fits in with the forum size limits.
-On the email (that its just generated) go to "File" then "Save Attachments"
The "Save attachments" dialogue box then appears which enables you to select where you want to put the picture/s.
-Once you have selected the folder from the "Save in" field click "Save" and then it will put the resized picture/s there. Check the file size and see if its re-sized to the size limits.

Note: you can actually set the reduction amount by going into the "Show more options" at the "Send Pictures via E-mail" dialogue.


If the whole thing doesn't work Google "Send Pictures via Email" as sometimes is simple to fix.....or get a PC savy mate to turn it on.

Within XP you can also get an Image resizer option that is available by right clicking the picture (thumbnail etc.). From memory its a Microsoft Powertoy....too lazy to Google it right now.......

Disclaimer: If it doesn't work for you or its too hard move on

Hi Guys,
it surprises me that all of the pictures attached to many members postings when displayed are still very small and difficult to see the finer detail.
I am aware that many don't have the software for image manipulation of bitmap images, namely Adobe Photoshop, but it is available from numerous sources, some for free especially for earlier versions.
I have posted the procedure and sample pictures on the following forum link:
http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f14/...photos-90.html (Posting photos) (permalink #6)
Try openning the pictures and lets know how they look when compared to some of these others. I normally reduce the original camera .jpeg image to 40 or 45cm width (as I believe that many people have 17"or larger screens) and then "save for web". At least the picture fills the screen (sometimes too large), but until I get complaints, will continue to supply large images with 72ppi resolution.
What do you think?

Neill

Neill,
I'll give it a go and let you know. I used to live in Woomera back in the early 90's. I spent a fair amount of time in Adelaide (mostly at the Casino, beach and Port Adelaide oval watching footie and drinking stubbies)

Hi KC
I have been living here in Adelaide for 58 years and rarely go to the casino, never to the beach and never to the footy. There is more to do with life than watching a group of grown men running around kicking hell out of an oval ball!
It is a great place to live and can't ever see me leaving permanently unless in a box.
I'd be interested in how you get on with your picture re sizing.

Neill

Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP

My favorite is Image Resizer (scroll down, it's there). It's really simple to use and does a good job. Oh, and it's free!

James, I posted a photo to a site recently that automatically resized the photo if it was too large....

...sorry, I should have remembered the site!

but I wonder if that software could be found for FB...it was neat.

Is it in your history? I'd love to see a site like that.
