Visit the Microsoft Site, download section at this link: Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP

Down the right side of the page under the heading Download, Scroll down to the 11th item titled Image Resizer, ImageResizer.exe, 521KB, 2 min @ 28.8KBps

Click the exe file and the download will begin, Install the proggie to the default directory. Once completed, when you RIGHT CLICK a photo or JPG file, in the dropdown box, the 6th item listed will be resize image. In the next box that appears, you'll be asked to select a size small, medium, or large. Click the radio button next to small or medium as these sizes will be downloadable by GP servers without problems.

Once the resizer program has done the resizing it will create a duplicate copy of your pic with the same file including the size you selected. RE: image file name was bigbud21714.jpg. The resized image will be located in the same folder or location your original picture but will have the file name: bigbud21714(medium).jpg

Happy Posting!!

Unfortunately since I'm a Win Vista user this powertoyz for XP will not work on my machine.
I thought my only *easy* choice was to resize online, which I am very against since I don't need some random 12 year olds resizing their facebook pics and viewing MY pics since most online resize sites send your photo into "recent" feeds.

I came across Free Image Resize Software Import organize resize photos- VSO (FREE!!) which is easy to use and has worked fine for me so far. I hope this helps any users that also cannot use XP tools.

I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager which is really easy to use. I also us a program called Ifranview which is a free download and has a lot of features.

Here's a couple of other resizers that should work well. http://www.faststone...iewerDetail.htm http://www.fotosizer.com/
