    You have to save them to your computer then use your photo program to resize to less than 800x800.
    You can find instructions in the Picture forum.I use my paintshop or my program that came with my camera to do it with.

    OK you don't want to cut or crop..you want to Re-size
    instead..that way you can keep the whole pic only smaller..see what I mean?

    Goin' on faith here, but if it IS a peony...yes, it's transplantable. Dig DEEP and wide and get as much soil as possible with it. Peonies tend to sulk a year or two after transplanting - some won't flower at all for at least one year.

    The older and more established it is, the deeper it will be in the ground. They seem to dig themselves deeper and deeper each season. I've dug really old ones that were all of 3' deep. They can have roots the size of your forearms, too.
