Gust..........what photo imaging program are are using?
IF you don't HAVE one try THIS one:

http://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm

It's FREE.....has EVERYTHING the average user (and THEN some) needs and doesn't try to take over your system and won't change file defaults.

Finally got it figured out. ran a pic as a test and it worked. deleted the whole message. Now when I want to attach that same photo for the who's who's thread it tells me it's already been used??

-------------------------------

Got it to work thanks guess the delete just had to get through the system

Default Re: attaching and resizing

The on-site automatic image resizing software SHOULD resize almost any image you want to upload BUT it doesn't always work.............

Here are the acceptable formats for the site:

bmp 48.8 KB 640pixels x 480 pixels (AVOID using THIS format)
doc 195.3 KB - -
gif 195.3 KB 640 x 480 (THIS one isn't too hot for the site either)

jpe 195.3 KB 1024 x 1024 (NOTE: jpe, jpeg and jpg are the same file formats)
jpeg 195.3 KB 1024 x 1024
jpg 195.3 KB 1024 x 1024

pdf 195.3 KB - - (chances are few people even HAVE this option)

png 195.3 KB 1024 x 1024 (this one is good too if it's an option in your software)

If you have any problems please email the pics to me and I'll add them for you...................

When I get back home to Wash. and to my own computer, I'll make contact with you and get it figured out. Since there are no thanks buttons anymore, just wanted to thank you for all you do for Harry and smokstak.
