Hi Angel,

What you need to do is re-size your photos. What OS are you using? Win98, XP, Vista? I use Vista home premium and to re-size photos when in my windows photo gallery I right click the photo and then click "open with paint". The paint program allows you to re-size the picture, then you click "save as" and it will permanently re-size your photo. I know this is kind of general. Let me know what programs you use on your PC and I'll try to walk you through getting it done.

OK, you are using WindowsXP. Do you know what version it is? They have-Home Edition, Professional, Media Center Edition, Tablet PC Edition, and Professional x64 Edition. It's probably one of the first three.

OK, I think I found what you need.
Go to-

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

When you get to this page, look at the right side of the screen and you'll see a list of free downloads. Scroll about 2/3 of the way down the page and you'll see a download called ImageResizer.exe. Install this in your computer and you'll have an image resizer tool. It's genuine Microsoft and it's free. It should work just fine.

Hi Rob,

You are a wizz kid on computers.Thanks allot ive done it. Now how do i explain when i tell you.....lol.....i truly must have a small brain cause i click on a photo....right click to resize, but its over 100 pixels x 100 and it does'nt give me the option to make it a bit smaller to fit the site. :)

Thanks so much for your help and time.But ive lost 4 hours of my life and still can not grasp it....oh how funny :)

I 'll try again tomorrow, but thanks so much.

On our forum update we will have larger images, and I think an automatic resizer too.

Download.com has free image optimizing programs.

Don't feel bad Angel, I'm not really much of a whiz with computers. I just have alot of time on my hands, and insomnia. A year ago, I didn't even know what an operating system was! Anyway, sorry the resize gizmo isn't working right. I'm going to wait for the website upgrades myself before I post some pics as I've had some of the same problems you have had with improper sizing. Can't wait to see the new and improved WHL.

Be careful Danica, you are going to inflate my ego if you keep this up. By the way, I'll be available in the lobby after the show for photos and autographs. Thank you very much.

See, it's already happening!
