If the original is a .jpg or a .bmp I use MS Paint.
I just open it, then use the "Image" | "Stretch/Skew" option to reduce it a little at bit over and over until I get it small enough.

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.

Then try and do a "Save As" a .jpg and upload that instead.

Nice one.

  • I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make when they go flying by.

When I saw the avatar I knew it was yours. Excellent pick. Very you!
