I want to post some pics of my latest scratchbuild, but the files are too large. I have no idea how to resize tem or whatever I need to do to get them to fit on this forum. Any one that can break it down Marine-proofed? :please:

Sarge,

Do you have photo editing software on your computer? You can resize the picture to a smaller pixel size, which will decrease the file size. If not, you can e-mail them to me and I'll do it for you and send them back.

If you use Windows XP, go to http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

and download the "image resizer" (at right). Once installed, you can create a smaller picture by right-clicking a file and choose "resize" and then "medium".

Should work wonders, as do most of the tools at the above link such as the Alt-Tab tool, Tweak-UI, Synctoy! I'm not sure, but I think the image resizer also adds "routate (counter) clockwise" when you right-click an image. No photo software required.

Thanks guys, I think I figured it out a little, still not quite happy with how it's working, but I'll keep messing with it.
