Default Picture Size For Posting

I store all my photos on Picasa. When you open the Manage Attachments then find the photo(in my case its in Picasa) I have no way to resize it. I cannot find any resize feature in Picasa anywhere. There has to be a better way,I think I hate Picasa.

I use Flickr, so I don't know the specifics, but in Flickr there's the option to select the BBCode for different sizes, so images can be embedded within your post, not as an attachement.

Does Picasa have anything like that?

It does, indeed, Tcav. Here's how:


First open up the photo you want to post.
You'll see a area to the right that has a button that says "Link to this photo" Click it.



Once clicked, make these changes. Then, highlight and copy the link in the second box. You're ready to paste it into your post.

You don't do it from ANY application. You do it from a photo-sharing website. Like Picasa Webalbum (which was what I thought you were referring to), Photobucket, Flickr, or any of a hundred or more other ones. You upload your photos to the host and share them from there.

Default Just to make sure

There is another way to do this. Right-click on the image and select "Copy image URL" Then, come in here to post by clicking on the little button that looks like a framed painting. Pretty nice shot, BTW.
