    open them with ms paint, and go into the image attributes at the top of the screen. click on the stretch and skew button, and in the stretch, put 75% or less. make sure you put the same in the height and width, or your picture will get a funky look to it. Save it and check the properties of it until you find a file size that is acceptable. you will have to experiment. There is easier ways, but I don't remember them.

    Good luck.

    Save the photos to you drive or disk.

    To resize open the file in your photo program. Paint or whatever. There will be a function to resize. Get the meter to show pixels instead of inches. Then change the pixel number to something less than 640 for height and width. Then save it back to the drive.

    From the window below it asks for browse and you direct it to where the photo is on your puter: drive, folder, file....

    The photos are the fun part!

    When you resize your pics try making them 450 X 450 I have been told that size will be easier on the server. Also try to get around 72 dpi.

    If you are unable to resize email them to me I will resize them and email them back to you.

    Good Luck!
