I simply use Paint (comes with any windows PC)to Stretch/Skew pics...will make them smaller.

ifran is a great program. It quick and doesnt bog down your system like paint. It takes no time to load up. Lets you define the sizes much better than the skew on paint. As usual, micrsoft is designed by idiot savants. Use ifran.

Again, this should be in Newbie section. Avatar Size is max 80 x 80. Signature size is max 500 x 100. Your Profile picture is 100 x 100 which appears when some one visits your personal page by clicking on a member's name.

There is no need to down size attachments at all. You need to down size your avatar or signature photo though.

Click Here to see what i mean: POST # 12.

As a matter of fact, if you click on the picture it does go bigger. Do it to the interior pic. The pic i attached is 1280 x 783.

There is no need to down size attachments at all. It will handle it. I loaded a 1280 x 783 attachment no problem.
To do attachments, left click on "Go Advanced" button on bottom of your posting box. Then left click on the Attachment Symbol "" --- you don't need to click on drop down arrow. A pop up box will appear. Left click on "Choose File" button and select a photo from your computer, then left click on the "Upload" button. You have done 1 attachment. You can do up to 5 attachments. When done close the pop up box.

Copying pictures from a website involves right clicking on the picture you want and left click on "Copy image URL", go to your post and left click on the insert image "" symbol above the post you are making and right clicking your paste from picture image URL you just copied.
