Thanks for the link Ironhat.
Where are you located? I'm near Mountville, just west of Lancaster.
Google's photo tool, Picasa can also resize images.
Very helpful Thanks
i've used photobucket with mine, seems to work and you can resize with it.
if you are using sofware, I have found that a farily useable size for photos is
500px width x whatever height
the reason is, a picture this size will show up on all monitors without having to sidescroll, even the 15" ones. You can go larger, but I am not sure how much, I switched to a 19" widescreen monitor. Larger also means a larger file to store.
Keep aspect ratio when resizing. Also cropping the photo will provide a much nicer image within the 500px width size.
I have been using Faststone Resizer for a few years and like it. It's easy and FREE.

I use Photobucket and have good luck with it. You can edit, resize, crop to name a few.
As far as seeing pictures in a post; I found out the hard way that if I delete a picture in Photobucket the posted picture goes away too.
Many of the listed programs do not work on Wndows 7 however.
The Windows XP had great resizing software as standard.
