Nice Powertoys link there RobC! I find Microsoft Office Picture Manager that comes with Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 does a very good job with compressing pics for this site. All my pics are done by compressing them to the 'document' setting, and they come out at about 100 - 180kb's. Perfect for the forum :thumleft:

Picasa is 'n gratis photo viewer met 'n paar redigeringsfunksies soos om foto's kleiner te maak, lig en kleur te stel, te crop en so paar ander
http://picasa.google.com/. Dit is ook lekker vir die elektroniese liasering van foto's.

Yes, I use MS Office Pic Manager... but a mission now as I have to use my Laptop to resize and then my PC to post, as Office 2013 doesn't have this program anymore... so pissed off about that!  Fortunately my two computers are networked, makes it a bit easier.

If you have a Samsung or other Android tablet this is how you do it:
First take the pics on your higher settings of the camera, you go to the camera, click the settings "cog" on your screen then click resolutions. You can play with these and when you crop the pics all will be at a low enough resolution for WD posting or quick downloading for friends. So thats the next step. Once you've taken the pic you go menu, more, then crop. You can crop to full size even and hey presto!!

I can recommend FastStone: http://www.faststone.org/
Very nice picture viewer, but also (important!) batch operations for resizing, renaming, etc. Point it at a folder, give it the resize specs, name an output folder and Bob's yer uncle.

Also includes a fine screen capture utility.


As a professional photographer I also use this program.  Easy to use and easy to download for free

The old tecnofobic idiots way ....put the photos on Face Book that shrinks them automatically then take them from there and put them on the forum ...
My 5 cents worth...
