I know this subject has been hammered a few times but want to ask this question anyway.
What is the best and quickest way to resize my pictures for posting?
I am shooting most of my shots at 6.3 mp and they result in pixtel size of 3072x2048.

Most of the time my efforts to post result in a message that the photo is to large and that 250kb is the maximum.

How do I know when I am at or below that number? I am using a shareware resizer program to reduce them but never know for sure what I have until I try to post it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks folks

I use the Microsoft Image Resizer Powertoy. It slams a large image down to 800 x 600 with very little loss of quality. You can download it from:

Thanks for the link. I did not see a powertoy for image resizing. Is it within one of
the other download files.
I am not shooting in "RAW" format.

Thanks again for the input.

FF-

When you go to that link, watch the right hand margin, that is where you will click to do the download. It works quite easily.

The only problem with the Image Resizer Powertoy is that it dumps all your exif data.

You can also download PhotoFiltre for free. It will do almost everything that my photoshop Elements will do but do it faster. When you resize with it you can save the file and hit the preview button in the save menu and specify the KB's you want. Also there is a check box to include the EXIF Data. Very easy and very fast!

Hmmmm, as it turns out, there are a lot of programs out there that will resize.

The pictures I posted in "Resize trial" were reduced with a free download called
"Pixresizer and it obviously worked but has limitations.

I will also try the ones that all of you have linked to and determine which best suits my need. Being able to see the EXIF data and choose the kb size seems to be a good
idea.

Thanks again for the links everyone.
