    I always put my pics on the computer. I click the box so that they are deleted from the camera at the same time.

    They always go to a file I made and named “Pictures to be Resized.”
    If they are not to be resized, it does not matter. I rename them. Cut and paste where I want them.
    Usually they are to be resized and I have PixResizer set to place the files in “Pictures to be resized” without me having to tell it to do so. All I do is adjust the largest size to be something under 800---790 for example. “Save” and that is it.

    The pics then automatically go to the file I made, named “Pictures Resized.” If I have not already deleted the pics I don’t want, I do so at this time. Then I rename any I wish to rename. Then I do <ctrl>x to cut. Then I paste them wherever I want them.

    They always come out the correct size for me to publish on FWW.

    PixResizer is a free software that I have been using for several years---back before there was a FWW. It only takes 5 to 10 seconds. I highly recommend it. I know quite a few people on SMC and FWW use it.

    Hope that helps. Any questions, just ask.

    Enjoy,

    I ran across this on Feb 21, 2012. It really is much simpler to use PixResizer than it sounds like. The first time will confuse you. The second time you will still be slow. The third time you learn that it is really fast and simple.

    By the way, I really like all photos being downloaded into my file "Pics to be resized." Then they automatically go to "PicsResized." It is simple. The same procedure is always followed whether it is family pics, FWW pics, HowTo pics. I highlight and do <control> x on pictures I want to place in a file, something like WW\Lathe\turning tools. I go to that file and do my <control> v. Some pics may go to one file while others can go to other files. JimB

    It is what it is then. I will just go back to the photobucket thing.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Alright, Lets see if you guys can keep from breaking this...I've figured out automatic resizing, no more having to do it before you attach. If you don't like the size or resolution, you can still do it yourselves though, it only resizes if it's over our limits.

    That's my protocol as well!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact,
    your absence won't make a difference!

    Well, I was going to hold out, but let's just call it your early Xmas present.

    I've been wanting to get something like this working for a while.

    Personally I don't think this new software is all that great I'm finding I have to be doing more clicking for posting first I have to go to pics already posted then click that I want to up load another pic. If I remember right it seems when using smiles or to subscribe or for pics I have to click to go advanced. It seems to me that they are adding complications. Getting government control happy.

    What we had was simple & easy to use. I find I'm reading but for the most part not posting especially pics. Or maybe I just don't understand how it's supposed to work. But I'm still happy to be here.

    So I just had to try it out too Darren works great.
