A concise and, hopefully, easy-to-follow tutorial here.

Constructive comments welcomed. Any other experienced users of other OSs (e.g. Mac) and Picture/Image Management applications (e.g. Mac, NeoOffice, OpenOffice, Picasa, etc), please add your own tutorials below.

I'll bet that takes a while if Lori is at the mall!

In a similar vein, I have a 'magic basket'; I put my dirty clothes in there and, the next day, they're back where they started before I wore them!

When I right click and hit edit on my pics...they open in MS Paint, and I always screw them up from there. So.....

My new method for re-sizing (from someone else on the forum, buried somewhere in a post on another subject):

Open the pic on your computer
Right-Click on the pic and click "send to"
Click on "mail recipient"
A pop up box then asks whether you want to make the picture smaller, and gives an option for size
The compressed pic then becomes an attachment to the "mail message"
Open the attached pic from the mail message
right click on the pic and save it wherever you want it to be on your computer
now you can attach the re-sized pic per original method.

Brew, rt/clk on any .jpg pic on your PC, choose Properties and, in the upper part of the subsequent window, observe Opens with: (which, in your case, will say MS Paint). Click <Change...> then navigate to, and dbl/clk, <Microsoft Office Picture Manager>; then OK out of the Properties window.

From now on using the Edit feature on photo files will result in opening in MSPicMgr. You can do the same with .bmp (bitmap) files, but you may wish to retain their creator, MS Paint, for those.

You can choose to open a bitmap in MSPicMgr individually by rt/clking on it and choosing <Open With> and using MSPicMgr for that Edit session; then, using <Picture> and <Compress Pictures...>, just undergo the same 'dot Documents'/'OK' process. When you close the window it will ask you to <Save> then <Create file>; you'll end up with a compressed .jpg file in the same folder, and with the same name -- but .jpg file extension instead of .bmp -- as the original file, ready for uploading.

NOTE: This applies to XP menus.

Thanks, Steve.....my computer skills are just past the slide rule days....maybe into the Commodore 64 era.....but I'm learning bit by bit!

Now, what do I right click on?

I have never been able to use one of those, except for drawing a straight line with a lump in!

Rt/clk on any photo; once associated with MSPicMgr, that's it; it's a once-only operation.
