I edit my photos using Windows Live Photo Gallery which comes pre-installed on Windows computer. When you right click on your photo one of the options is edit, click that and it should open up on your computer. You can then customise photo size to 500/600 pixels. Photo bucket can also be used.

Thank you Leedsgurl for combining the two post together on both of my threads. But I noticed another one of my threads has very large photos on it to, please could you replace the original photos with the resized photos that I've posted, the thread is:
Sherbet's Playtime Photos
Thanks

I'm not sure if this helps - but I found the whole file size/shrinking thing confusing. There is one thing for photobucket (where you edit the photo for the physical size so it fits the page), but when you use the paperclip to upload on here it's different.

If you upload on here, an original photo from a camera it will be 5 or 6 mb maybe, which is a "large file" (sorry I don't know all the technicalities), rather than the size of the photo. It will take a long time to upload. I use a program called Batch Photo to "shrink" the file to 25% of the original size. This reduces it from 5mb to say 250kb - and then they upload very quickly (and look just the same I reckon). But the actually size and proportions of the image are the same.

Whereas with photobucket there is no need to "shrink" - although again they will upload quicker if you do. On photobucket, you just upload the files, then click edit, resize and choose the width (600 or 700) in the left box and the right box changes itself accordingly, then save it. Then your photo will fit within the forum page.

For shrinking photos to upload on here from your computer, using the paperclip icon though, shrinking the file size is best. There will be other programs apart from Batch Photo and you can do it online as well, but that's a bit slow. The Batch photo program is free, but limits what you can do without paying for the full version (which is a one off lifetime fee - I ended up buying it) - but the free version will let you shrink photos which is all you need it for.

Having said all that, I've never had a problem with photos showing up whether I shrink the file or not so maybe there is something else as well.

I usually upload the photos as attachemnts so do I need to resize it still? Cos they always look small once they are like that! Lol

Yes I think you will need to resize your photos as I upload my photos as attachments too which as I have learnt that they use up lots of space on the forum, also I found out when you resize them to 500 pixel wide instead of them having a file size of 92.0kb they are now only around 20.0 to 30.0kb which leads them to be uploaded quicker.

Also by my pictures being very large file size this might of been the reason that they weren't showing up. Also as you mentioned some of your previous post that some of your pictures weren't showing up in some of your previous threads this might also be the reason they weren't showing up anymore. So I would recommend resizing your photos to.
