There is a remote possibility that the memory size could still be too big, but after thousands of images, I haven't see that happen yet with this resizing system.

I'm looking at the Resize Tool albums now and see a Harley-Davidson sign photo as the only one currently in your resize album. It was resized to 640x480 at 35k by the Resize Tool, well within the limit. I'll post it here in this reply as a File Manager attachment.

If you would have uploaded this image file, it would have worked fine. Perhaps you tried to upload a different file, or the original?

I followed the new resize instructions/ function and it reduced the picture from 1.88 MB to 4.02 KB but it is still too large to upload via File Manager. What step am I missing?

I looked at your space in the Resize Tool and there is nothing there. Hard for me to diagnose a problem with nothing to go on. I'll send you an email so you can send me the image file as an attachment.

Please try again to use the Resize Tool and let me know how far you got and where you had the problem. I can get it working for you. Please try again.

Click on the "Resize Image for File Manager" link on the "New Topic" or "Full Screen Reply" form.

I have a picture saved on my hard drive which I have resized with both Windows Photo Viewer and Microsoft Office Picture Manager (neither photo will work). If I right click on properties, the size is 79 x 75 pixels and is 20.0 kb. When I try to browse and save as my avatar I get the response "Improper picture type." Anyone have an idea what I am doing wrong? Thanks.


Currently looking for a WHITE STAR Staroleum or Staroline sign, a FILMOIL sign and a Wayne 866. Send a PM. Thanks.

Sounds like the image is in a file type that is not one of the ones acceptable for upload.

The only image file formats that may be uploaded are: .gif, .jpg, .png These are the formats most widely used on Web sites. There are other computer image file formats such as .bmp, .tiff and others that are not accepted for avatars and File Manager uploads. The Windows 7 "Paint" program (found in Programs: Accessories) allows you to open a .bmp and some other formats, resize and save it as .jpg.

If you are unable to save it in a format mentioned, send it to me as an attachment to email. My email address is in my Profile. Click on my user name on the left and choose "Profile."

Antifreeze is an auto service can, so it is considered petroliana as defined in the For Sale Guidelines.

Does the image resize tool still exist? I am not new to forums, but cannot locate my album or the resize image for file manager upload. I am a new member so thought this may have something to do with it?
Help.... I got pics I would love to share!

The Resize Tool is working every day helping members resize images.

Did you read and follow the directions in the first post of this topic?
You have to separately register on the Resize Tool page. A private album is created there after you register there and login.

Click on "Contact" on the upper right on any forum page to contact me for individual help with using the Resize Tool if you still have problems.

I do not see how this is easier to use than "paint" if that is available as it is to me.

If you understand how to use Windows Paint it is an easy and fast way to resize photo images to 640 x 480, especially on Windows 7 and newer. Many people don't know how to use it.

Thanks Jim,appreciate the answer.


Try this,right click on your photo,click open with paint,click resize,i change the pixels to 800 click okay then click save as and it will be saved,you can also rename it if you want to.

Oh,800 pixels works well for emailing a picture. shocked
