I'd downsize them first using something like the free Irfanview. Get it here:


Basically, just open an image (File>Open) and go to the Image>Resize/Resample menu choice. Then, make sure the "Preserve Aspect Ratio" box is checked and plug in something like 800 pixels for the longest side and click Apply. You'll also see algorithm choices you can select. I usually use Lanczos.

Then, use the File>Save As menu choice and give it a new filename (so that you're not overwriting the original), using a JPEG quality setting of about 80% (you'll see a slider that pops up for that purpose when saving a jpeg image). As long as the dimensions are downsized, then around 80% quality should keep the file size within limits for posting.

Then, if you type a new post, make sure to click the "Go Advanced" option you'll see here and use the Paperclip icon to browse for the new filename and attach it to a forum post here.

You can also use Picasa web albums and it will "downsize" it for you.

You can drag and drop the pictures.

A not so great demo - http://flic.kr/p/9a7PZx
