Hello Dicky, and welcome to our board. Your orchid photo is beautiful. Photo re-sizing can either be performed by a graphics program on your computer, or automatically when you upload to certain photo-hosting websites. Instructions for doing it will vary according to which software you have, or which image-hosting website you use. Are you using a Windows or an Apple computer, and do you know if you have any image editing programs on it?

Peter.

Hi Dicky
I use Photoshop elements v4 (suspect it's pretty similar to v3)
if you open the image (probably a jpeg?) you want to resize in elements, then:-
Click on image - in the menu at the top
then click on 'resize' - that should open a dialogue box and should show the number of pixels in the height and width boxes
For web use, I usually resize the longest side to 520 pixels - the other dimension should automatically resize to maintain the proportions.
Then click on 'File'
then click on 'save for web' - this should allow you to save the file as a jpeg again, but in the smaller size.

Hope this helps.

Pete

Glad it helped, Dicky
Great shot by the way - is it a clematis?

Another point - when you reduce the size of an image, you generally lose some sharpness, so sharpening may help. PhotoShop Elements 6 gives you fine control over the sharpening parameters, but I don't remember whichever older version that I got in 2000 giving the same level of control.
