i'm trying to resize a picture to post on here and i am obviously an amature... at first the size was too big so i resized it to the 1000x700 limit but now it says that the file size is too big. it says to resize, change color depth, or make it smaller with a zip program. i'm using photoshop on my mac so if any of you guys could advise me it would be much appreciated. thanks guys

<a href="http://letmegooglethatforyou.com/?q=resize+photos+photoshop" target="_blank">http://letmegooglethatforyou.com/?q=resize+photos+photoshop</a> <BR> <BR>make sure it's no bigger than 900x900 and no bigger than 145kb.

FUNNY website Joe... <BR> <BR>MK, <BR>Assuming you use Outlook/PC...one thing that you might can do is either open the pic with Microsoft Office Picture Manager(if you have OFFICE). There is an edit photo function that will allow you to resize.. <BR>Another option...Select the photo image in it's file location (Folder)..right click...send to...mail recipient.. Outlook will give you the option to resize smaller for email.. If you have Vista, it gives your more size options.. <BR>Hope this helps...

Do you have photoshop ?

kylepower8 12-01-2008 7:22 PM

yeah cs3. but not too good at it.

Walt 12-01-2008 7:23 PM

Another quick way (windows) is you can E-mail it to yourself and click on the (make photo smaller) option.

Walt 12-01-2008 7:23 PM

Hold on and I'll post a step by step with PS.
