IrfanView works best for me. I haven't tried the new one that Kent recommended. PhotoShop is not really good for resizing because I had to make the pictures small to get the size low enough. In IrfanView, usually all I have to do is change to 16 bit color and they fit. Once-in-a-while, I will still have one that won't post. Then I have to go back and make the picture a little smaller in actual size to get it below the 100K.

Guys -- check the file size not the picture size on the screen to make sure it is less than 100 KB before you try posting. It will save a lot of frustration... Also, don't confuse file size with picture size -- they aren't the same. Think of picture size as a measure of volume, like a bucket. Think of file size as a measure of weight. A gallon of rocks and a gallon of feathers don't weigh the same... File size depends on how much detail and how many colors are used in the picture, in addition to the size of the picture.... File size is what impacts not only storage space on the server, but also how long it takes the picture to be sent to your browser and displayed on your screen.... I can produce 800 X 600 .jpg pictures in the 40KB - 70KB range that still look very good, using graphics compression programs. In a native format to graphics programs (like Microsoft Paint, PhotoShop or PaintShop Pro) that same file might be 3MB or even far more.... Focus on compressing the file size -- not just shrinking the picture.
