pelmore, how'd you get that picture in there. I've tried and, even using ImageShack, they come out way too large.
I resized it to 450 pixels wide.
The photo doesn't need to be very big for the web since screen resolution is only 72 pixels per inch. If you don't intend to print your photos, you can probably reduce the photo resolution setting in your digital camera and may be able to skip the editing step. I usually set my camera at a moderately high resolution so I have more to work with for cropping and editing.
There are many different programs available that allow you to resize and otherwise manipulate images. Alot of folks use Paint Shop Pro which is reasonable in cost. I'm not familiar with the program your using but I'm thinking that it should have a resize feature.
The photo manipulation software I use is ACDSee 4.0 with the integrated FotoCanvas v1.1 editor. The web site is http://www.acdsystems.com/English/index.htm. I think they are selling version 7 now. I've been using ACDSee software ever since the company first started. It's not as sophisticated as the fancier programs like Paint Shop Pro and others but is low in cost and very handy to use. The basic program is a versatile photo viewing program with an integrated editor (fotocanvas). In recent years they have increased the editing features included in the editor. I use it for photos and simple image editing. When I create more complex images for web sites, I usually use Paint Shop Pro and one of the Xara programs.
Since I build web pages, I also optimize the images I post with a program called xat.com Image Optimizer. It compresses the image to reduce file size for fast loading over the internet. I hope this info is helpful.
Thanks for the information. I'll look those programs up.
