I could post some pictures which a few might find interesting, but my
jpeg's are too big. How can I re-size them? Sorry, this questions probably been asked too many times, but I'm new here.

Create a account at www.photobucket.com (or similar free photo hosting site) then when you upload there it will auto resize your images to your selected setting (640x480/800x600 being suitable for forums use.) then simply link the image from there using image tags.

And yes another useful tip on this forum is the search function ;)

or just open them in MS Paint (as long as you have Windows) and use the "Stretch/Skew" option from the Image menu. :)

Thanks for the info. I'll give it a try if I'm left alone for 5 mins.

I just use MS Outlook. Right click on the picture, send as email attachment, reduce the size, then save the attachment. Voila, smaller picture without too much of a reduction in size (just a reduction in kb's).
