A good free photo software is called paint.net. You get it at www.getpaint.net, you need to dodge the ads for other things to find the right version to download.
When you resize a photo, 1024 pixels wide is a good size for the forum. When you go to save it as a .jpg, it will show you the kb size the file will be. You can increase the compression to reduce the size right there. It depends on the content of the image not just the width.

rockerarm - 2021-11-23 6:25 AM>I have a PC. Running windows 10.
In that case, Irfanview should be your new friend. I have been using it on my PC since its beginning (through two or three PCs, VISTA, Windows 8.1 and now Windows 10). Works great.
I especially use it to handle screen captures (Shift, Print Screen). ( If I can see it on the screen, its mine. )
And of course, resizing photos that folks send me (or I take) down from 5 Mb to 180 kB (so I can post them here).
I am currently using the 64 bit version, downloaded from here:

I'm in the same boat as Will here. My devices reject the pic format resizing downloads? Sometimes I can post a attachment and sometimes I cant? I have read through all the suggestions,but still get mixed results.
When I can post a attachment nobody wants to click on it. So I just don't post here that much anymore.
I have noticed other members often have trouble posting pics and give up.
I do not have trouble posting pics on other sites. Just here.
I'm not into Facebook sites and enjoy this forum format style.
Happy thanksgiving everyone.

This is really a problem for many sites and little-known social networks. I don't like the fact that I can't upload a photo to my Instagram feed in its real size. Instagram automatically crops photos, it pisses me off. There are photos that I like very much and want to share, but their format does not fit the site. Okay, in that case, I just ordered a paint-number drawing of my photos and hung them up in my room. Of course, no one will see this "terrible revenge", but it soothes my soul.

I have not got a computer ,I have an iPad and a Sony xperia android phone , I can downsize pictures with software I have on my phone and during this change to jpg however when I send them back to my iPad for posting when I open they have changed to jpeg ,these downsized photos will download to the site and be in a list at the bottom of the post I am creating but only visible after opening by persons viewing the thread, so if my phone screen was big enough to see I could download onto the site in the correct format and the photos would be visible but it’s to awkward and the software programme does not work on my IPad , however I have had an immense amount of help from forum members over the short time I have been a member and this problem pales into insignificance to where I would have been without the forum and it’s members
