I found this image resizer that comes in handy to resize my pics so they are small enough to post here. It is a windows XP program from Microsoft. After installing you just have to right click on a pic and you have a choice to resize it. You do not have to open up a program to do it. It is rally cool and works real easy.
On the web page scroll down till you see the image resizer in the blue box on the right.
Anyway I thought this might help.
