Uploading photos

Postby susancammas » 05 Feb 2017 16:58

Good afternoon

This is a cry for help! I can't find a way to upload photos (jpg) to the site - I have tried every way I can think of but they are always too big. Can anybody explain in simple terms how to make them the right size?

Many thanks
Susan

Try this programme.

2. Choose 'custom' option and enter '700' for image size

That will ensure the image is maximum size for uploading

What always works for me is the little program that comes with all Microsoft Windows: "Snipping Tool". My Dad just showed me this, and I don't know how I lived without it all these years. You'll find it under "accessories" or one of the program folders including the standard little Windows programs. I just pull up a picture in my Windows Explorer viewer window, minimize the window to show the picture on my screen at a smaller size, and then use the Snipping Tool to "snip" at the smaller size. Hope that makes sense, and if you have any questions, just go ahead and ask. :)

Regards,
Sarah
