Uplaoding Photos

Hi,
I was gonna share a few pics I took from my latest trip to India with club members, but they don't appear to be uploading from my PC. I assume they're too big at, for example, 2.1mb. Could anyone advise how I re-size them to post?
Many thanks in advance!
Russ

Russ, you need to get them down to a max of 600kb to post on here. I use Photoshop, but apparently you can do it easily in Microsoft Paint, if you've got that.

It is possible on Picasa but I never find it easy.

Actually it is now 400 KB.

Sorry and all that.

I've also found this a handy tool in the past:

For resizing photos, here's a decent and free photo editor

And one more resizing app that works very simply:

http://www.cooltweak.com/en-GB/Download-CoolTweak,1.aspx

After installation when you "right-click" on a photo you select the Cool Tweak option and take it from there.
