What I do is use IrfanView to shrink the size down below the board requirements .I click on the resize and resample .If the size of the photo file is over the size limit.I reduce that with Micrografx Picture Publisher 10 and save the file to a smaller size under the board limits.

Thanks to and hats off to Alan in having this feature and server space which saves us from using other photo sharing sites and not worry about getting screwed like we did with Photobucket.

That's what I do because it is so quick and easy. But when I save the image, I use IrfanView's own file-size limit option so there is no need to use a separate program for that. It is at the bottom of the pop-up menu when you click on "Save As".

I just re-discovered a hugely powerful tool called ImageMagick. It will resize a whole folder full of images with one short command.
I use it with Linux, but I think there is a Windows version......edit: Yes, supports all platforms:

For individual files, simply resize it lower.

I simply use Paint Shop to crop and resize down to 800 x 600 (50% of my camera's 1600 x 1200 size scans). Sometimes when I try to "add the file", however, the forum S/W will say that the maximum size is 256 kb. In that case I go back to Paint, and downsize a small percentage, and try adding it again. Sometimes I have to do this in several tries.

I use irFanView for most downsizing along with its file size limit plug in and it works smoothly and quickly to produce a forum friendly image. I expect the DPP software with my Canon EOS 1 does a little better job of preserving the best image quality when going from a very large raw file down to a small jpg but for non-critical work irFanView is great.

I did run into a problem trying to add a correctly sized image to a post via edit this morning getting a server error 500 using both FF and Opera browsers. Not a big deal since the image wasn't critical to the post but this has never happened before so I expect something is up with the forum server or software so new users running into issues currently may be experiencing a problem not due to their making.
