Old computer? They may load but just be taking longer than you're waiting. This will be aggravated by windows.

See if you can't set your camera to take/save the photos in a smaller size/quality.

Re: photo editor

If you just want to resize photos for the Stak and you are using a PC, not a Mac, try https://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/. I've used it for years, its very easy to use and its free. Take pictures at full resolution and then resize them after, keeping your full resolution for other uses.

Here are the only two screens you will see. Literally two clicks and you can copy and resize all pictures you have selected.

Re: photo editor

How many Megabytes per photo? I am set for 8 each right now and much more for anyone uploading more than one photo. That would make 40 Megs on Stak PHP and 48 Megs on Enginads PHP. Inefficient and time consuming this way (takes longer to upload too), but it's the modern way.

If you want to get into reducing, Irfanview is one that's free and complicated. You might be better off with Photoshop Elements. Once you reduce them, you can never expand them, so keep backups.

Re: photo editor

Gene, I've got an old (old) HP photo editor that is very simple to use. I looked and its a 1998 program but I use it 99% of the time for my photos. You can crop them, shrink them, enlarge them, change the color, rotate, lighten, darken, etc. In other words, it does the basics. Its not a fancy photoshop type program. I don't know if I can pull it off and send to you or not but I'll try. I even was able to email it once from an older computer to a newer one but I had a computer tech tell me "you can't do that".....but I did.... once.....not sure if I can again or not. Let me see if I can come up with something and if so I'll get it to you.

I use Linux and mtPaint but in your windoze 'Puter, try the paint program to resixe. :)
I send big pics from my phone to my email, download them into a folder, click Image, rotate and scale the pics for use here. Key words there. did ya catch 'em?
About a 1000 pixels works pretty good.

Irfanview, been around for decades, still works on XP extremely lightweight and upwardly mobile as your skills progress - can do batch operations if you want to resize an entire directory full of images.

I re-size mine in paint. --- Jim uses Flickr and I tried that too but don't like the way it messes the string up on the pix. ---you have to manually erase part of it before you post.
