In order to save on forum space and for your posting pleasure, I would like to offer a few tips on how to resize your photos and change the orientation using simple MSFT Windows tools.
If you have photos on your HD and they are upside down, sideways etc this is a very simple way to fix this. Open the pic in the Windows Picture Viewer and notice at the bottom the toolbar.
On the toolbar are two arrows for rotate counter-clockwise and rotate clockwise. You can click these and make the pic rotate either direction, OR you can just use the keyboard key and "Ctrl + ," at the same time. That's Ctrl and the comma symbol, try it out.
Once your pic has been reoriented you can save it in place AND reduce the files size at the same time if you so chose.
Hit "Ctrl + s" for the save menu and you will be presented a drop down dialog box presenting some other size options. If your pic is ginormous and you want to use it in the forum, then just chose SMALLER, SMALL or MEDIUM and you will see a new estimated file size.
Click on ATTACH - although you're not attaching to an email, just going through these steps to rotate and resize. Once you click on ATTACH you will get a box stating there is no email program associated with ... just cancel that.
VOILA! You now have your properly oriented pic that is greatly reduced in size in order to use in the forum.
Another way to make gigantic pics forum friendly is to right click the photo and OPEN WITH > Windows Paint.
When open in Paint you hit (Ctrl + W) then you RIGHT ARROW key once, then you TAB once and type in a new number in to the top field, such as 1024 or 400 . . . hit ENTER and then (Ctrl + S) which will save it as a resized image.
Of course you can do the same things with a mouse click but once you get the keyboard thing down, it's easy peasy. This not only helps the forum with hosting costs but it saves time for everyone to load web pages faster to view posts.
