    shrinking pictures

    I am a memory hog. My camera takes huge shots, and keep them in huge format on my computer and I have never needed to really shrink them. Now, I want to get a good photo small enough to make an avitar, yet decent quality. How do I go about doing this? Everybody else can, but not me. Do I need to save it in a different format, compress it somehow?
    I tried a search, but everthing with resizing had to do with other techniques.
    1000 posts, WOW. It only took me two and a half years.

    With any image editing software, resize to 100x100 or whatever the forum limitation is and then save it as either a medium or lesser quality jpeg or gif and you should be fine.I'm assuming you know how to upload images?
    Great spirits will always encounter violent opposition from mediocre minds.

    I do that, and it still comes in at 36kb, and over the maximum allowed. My last picture, I took to 20x20 and saved it as small as photoshop CS2 would allow and it still went 24.7kb.
    Have not tried the gif deal. I will try that.
    Thanks

    use the "save fo web" option. if you do the regular save, i think the EXIF data is still in the file

    I will try that. I did the .gif option and that did the trick. But I would like to get it done in jpg format. I will give that a try.
