Do you have a picture editing software? If so, you should be able to resize your picture and save it at the new size. Try to save it as another name, so you can keep the original file, just in case. The unit measurement for image size on monitors and on the web is usually in number of pixels. Your flower is 32 x 32 pixels. The typical image size I post here is 400 pixels wide. For signature images, I would keep them at 150 or Less. I use Photo Shop for image editing, and I can size my images in almost any unit of measurement, i.e., inches, which can tell you how large an image will print on paper.

So, let us know what you do know how to do,what software you may have, and I'm sure we can help.

Otherwise, for now, if you would like, you can email me the image, and I will resize it and send it back to you.

Ok, I did some checking. Here is very basic editing software that comes with Windows. Go to Programs - Accessories - and then find Paint. Once there, go to file open. Open the file (image) you want to resize. Once you have the file open go to Image then to Attributes. In Attributes you can resize your image in pixels, cm, or inches. Be careful. When you change either the vertical or the horizontal to hit the default button to automatically adjust the other dimension proportionally. Then “save as” your new file name. When it asks you do you want to save the changes to the original file, say no. This will keep your original file in its original state. There are other tools in Paint you may find useful and fun.

Of course, after you've resized that image, you'll need to upload it to a host server, like MSN Groups. Sound familiar?

And, no, there is no way around it.

Lessafinger, you are so very, very, kind. I am going to fiddle with paint. I have done almost nothing off line, so I have an empty brain there. I will print out your instructions.

Ron, can't you please do your instructions in 25 words or less. I do not read long things well. (That is the truth . . . drugs in one's youth leave all sorts of weird things in a person.)

I printed your stuff and will try to wade through it.

Ron, I appreciate all of the work you do to educate us all on the computer. You do a lot of work on it and are very good at it.

Sorry for my "computorial" brain block just now. :(

Purp,
Ron is, indeed, a very helpful, but modest fellow!

I am so computer illiterate, I'm thinking of applying for disability, just for that reason.
However, I printed out all Ron's instructions, followed them very carefully, and was ably to post a picture, AND actually able to do the MSN Group thing!
(I hope that doesn't disqualify me for my disability....)
