Not sure if this is the correct place to post. I am trying to place an ad in the classifieds section and place a picture of our Winnebago. Each time I get an error saying the image is too big and should be no bigger than 1000KB.

How can I resize a 1.0MB to fit or how do I take a picture of the correct size?

Thanks
Wayne

Here's a post by RV Roamer regarding this specific subject:
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">One of the Microsoft Windows Power Toys is a fast and simple Picture Resizer. Works like a champ. It puts an entry in the right click context menu for photos, so it is always handy when you need it.

Scroll Down to Image Resizer </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I just downloaded this but haven't tried it yet. Let us know how it works if you decide to use it.

Rusty

In Windows you can use "paint" or if you have Office installed you can use "photo editor" to resize a picture. There are many other programs that will do it as well but the free stuff in windows should help you out. If you are using a MAC, I can't help.

1000KB is the same as 1.0MB but the resizer posted by RustyJC should come in handy anyway.

Thanks for the suggestions. Actually the photo was 1.07MB therefore the error message. I downloaded the Power Toy resizer but when I tried to open the program all I got was a "Read Me" banner which was little help. Will try that again later.

I was able to get into another Windows resize utility and was able to get it down small enough to put in the ad, but now it is too small . Oh well, if at first you don't succeed, use the T&E method. I'll keep at it untill I get it right !

When I "right click" on a photo, using the Windows XP version, I get a menu that asks which of 4 sizes I want the picture to be, so I choose how large or how small I can make it.

You don't open the Power Toy resizer per se. Rather, when you right-click on an image, you'll see an additional option to "Resize Image". If you select this, there are 4 size options available.

I use Irfan View... You can resize and reduce the resolution to reduce the total size to less than 100k (great for dial up). Great for the web but really poor for printing.
