You need to use a program such as Adobe Photo Shop or similar to re-size the picture. Reduce it to 500 to 750 pixels in the largest dimension and post it as a attachment.

You need to find "Image Resizer" for whichever Windows version you are using. You can Google it and find it. Awesome, easy, and quick.

Microsoft Paint will do anything you need to and it is already on your computer, unless you are a misguided Mac person.

That being said, just go into the image tab in the toolbar and click on click on resize/skew or you can use attributes.

Open up a free Photobucket account and post a link to the image. It will automatically resize for you. Click on the little yellow block just above the message box to insert your image.
