I right-click on the photo and select "Open with Microsoft Picture Manager" then use Picture -> Resize -> and lower the "Percentage of original width x height" pixel by pixel till it meets the site requirements. There's a display called "Size Setting Summary" that will show you the final size of your resized photo. Once you get it small enough, just save it with a new file name.

Those ^^^ are great!

I spent more time at the hot springs than on mountain tops this past summer, so my Christmas card features twelve of my thirty-two favorite Colorado "hot spots." I guess I actually could have made a calendar... :D

Nice ^^^ The pup looks pretty serene up there... or maybe he's just really happy that you didn't tape reindeer horns to the top of his head :-)

If anyone's interested, Kodak Gallery has cards at 50% off for 72 hours, starting tomorrow - Monday. You can upload your photos and design the cards today and then order them in the next 3 days to get the discount. The offer is here.

It's Christmas Card time again!

This year I did a few peaks and a LOT of waterfalls...

Wishing you all a long winter's nap with visions of summits, canyons, hot springs, and waterfalls dancing in your heads :-)

Merry Christmas!

Nice card as always, Susan!

I wish we could get some mountain-related Christmas cards, but only half of my family is into the mountains!

Try 800 X 600 per Susan's instructions, you should be fine.
