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.

Has anyone ever linked a photo to one-drive link or other cloud storage?
Or are the links limited only to a photo hosting site?

I can't believe there's this many posts to loading a photo. Here's the easy way.
Buy the "Advance JPEG Compressor" software then:
1. Drag and drop photo
2. Set Kilobytes to 250
3. Set resize to 800
4. Save photo
5. Post photo

After you've done this a few times it will take about 30-45 seconds to size and post your photo.

As I've posted before, simply use Windows Paint -which doesn't cost anything- and resize down to 800 pixels per side. What I do before that, is to crop first, so the subject will be as large as possible, once resized.

2. Set Kilo bits to 250

That would be kilobytes, unless Kilo is your dog and it eats 250 pieces of kibble bits at time, then, yes set the Kilo bits to 250 to avoid Kilo bites. Savvy?

The only reason I decided to point this out was to add another post to this thread. I really don't care if it is Kilo bits or kilobytes, what I really hope is that this post pushes this topic to 14 pages.

Edit: Drat, it didn't.

With the JPEG compressor you only do it once, it's right the first time. This inexpensive software is easy to use and saves time, and time is the most valuable thing we have.

Free beats inexpensive every time... :wink:

Truthfully though, I've never researched for S/W to trick a scan, and have been using paint for so long that it just ain't no big deal for me to go through extra steps occasionally.

I use GIMP, and I can crop and scale really fast. For many pictures, I'll also do some other corrections--- eg contrast or perspective. This is where the more capable SW pays off.
And it is free....

You want FAST? Get ImageMagick. You can scale a whole folder full of pictures with one command. (Also free)

Here's my solution to the problem. Flikr.com It works a bit like photobucket did, though it did take me a minute to get the hang of it. But I've been using that here since photobucket went south.

When you are on one of your photos, and you click share, it gives you a sizing option, which 640x480 seems to work great here. The only problem is when you copy the IMG code, there's extra text that you have to delete off after you paste it, but PB was similar in that regard.
