    Picmonkey or Microsoft Paint are easy to use. I usually use Paint because it is right there on my laptop and I can keep the original and the resized photos together in a file.

    There's a free program you can download to your computer called Shrink Pictures. I had a computer coach install it on mine. It automatically downsizes the pics when you send them via e-m or post on this site.

    Sorry I was rushed when I posted. www.resize2mail.com is the correct link. Also a free service.

    If you can download pics onto your laptop or computer, you should have some sort of photo software built in. On my laptop, when I look at my saved photos, there is an "Edit" button at the top. I click to select the photo, then click the "Edit" button, and then another menu pops up, including one selection that is marked "Resize." I click on the "Resize" button, and then a little window pops up with two options: You can select Percentage or Pixels. I always choose Pixels; you will see two boxes with numbers - mine usually say 4800 and 3600. I change the 4800 to 800 (which automatically changes the other number to 600), and hit enter and save. Later, if I am trying to upload photos to FB or the Forum, when I let the mouse hover over a given photo thumbnail, it will tell me what the size is. As long as it says 800 x 600, then that's the one I need. Hope that helps. Also, Gramma Babs explained it to me, so if this works, thank her!

    I use Paint to resize.
    1. Right click on photo to get menu and click on Paint.
    2. Click on resize.
    3. Change from percentage to pixels.
    4. Whichever number (horizontal or vertical) is larger, change that number to 800. It will automatically change the other number for you.
    Save file and you are ready to go.

    I went to this website and saw this on the bottom of the page:

    Hmmmmmm, I think I'll pass.
