      Eileen has been struggling with IE7 and IE8 for two years.

      Go and download Firefox and you won't even have to think about resizing pictures - I never do.

    There is a lot of grumbling about pic uploading from IE 8 users.
    It sure does seem to be buggy.

    How many pics?
    What programmes have you got?
    Have you got Photoshop?

    Where are you keeping you pics now?
    I mean do you have your own site or are you just using your PC and a basic microsoft program?

    I use a Kodak programme (that came with the camera) upload n store to there (sometimes desktop, or shoot pics straight to email). Sis (In NZ ,said pics came through the sze of posters-haha..)

    Had a lil thought that maybe Ive fiddled with camera settings too, (noooo..not me) and they are transfering exactly the way I take them....
    Still I should be able to reduce them.

    No dont have photoshop, will download n try that. Thanks.

    Go Go all things Kiwi!!! smile

    I love to keep up with this site too

    Microsoft Paint is ok for basic pic works EK -

    The edit function for shrinking is very easy.

    If you learn Photoshop... you can have alot of fun.
    I also use Coraldraw.

    I found a good site that will resize your pics for free. Go to http://www.picresize.com

    They give you the option of making the picture 25, 50 or even 75% smaller, and they have basic editing options on there as well. Hope this helps you out.

    I find it works perfectly for blog photos :-)
