Default Posting Pictures in a Thread

Hello all,

I'm new to the forums and wanted to upload my first picture. However the 12.4 mp camera puts out a larger than allowed file size. I've reduced the file to 1024 in width as required, but that leaves a horrible looking picture. What is the method of getting pictures to upload and attached to a post so that they appear in the post, and still look quality.

Thanks,

Osnap

I would use something like infraview which is free if you don't have photoshop or similar. With that is should be easy to get a shot that is about 200kb and 1024 resolution while looking good.

I frequently use the Microsoft Office Picture Manager to resize photos. It's a program that comes with Microsoft Office. If you're using Windows and Office, it's on the menu under Microsoft Office Tools.

Also, the application that came with your K-x should have that capability as well.

I will second the recommendation for Irfanview. It has an excellent set of resizing algorithms.
