Could someone help me to understand how to attach photos to my threads. I have Cannon digitalPower Shot SD 600 ( 6.0 Mega Pixels), and have downloaded the pics (jpegs) into "My Photos" on my computer. When I try to attach by going to "Manage Attachments", and then click "browse" it takes me to "My Photos". I then select the photo, and try attach a photo, BUT then it says my file is too big. The size of each picture (file) I take with my camera is from 1.4 MB to 2.2MB. The size of the pics are 2816 x 2112.

If someone can walk me through it step by step, I would appreciate it. I gotta tell you I am very high tech challenged.....

Thanks in advance,

takes two hands

Resize your photo to a maximum of 640 pixels for the longest dimension and resolution to 72...

If you are running Windows XP, look at the top of the page - there is a link to a free image resizer that does a great job.

Man, I feel so challenged when it comes to computers. But thanks to the tips given, I think I can at least shrink the photos to tiny ones that fit on this page. Anyway, these are shots of my little cabin that we just purchased on the Matane. It's right on the river, with 470 feet of frontage. It was my dream, and it just fell into our laps. So we felt it was it was "meant to be".......

WOW Congratulations.

That's inspiring... may we all have a dream cabin in our lives someday.

Happy new year!

Thanks Juro....

Actually I'm feelin very lucky right now. Got a new lease on life, got a new cabin, and got a new wife from Holland. She loves the Gaspe as much as I do. You even taught me how to attach pictures my posts. Things turned around for me all in one year. The new property was the crowning touch. :p

That's strange.......I thought THAT WAS "MY" SECRET SPOT! I wonder how many other guys keep that spot secret? It's probably the "worst" kept secret on the river:chuckle:

Howie, well done on the cabin and the new wife.

Now you just have to show us all what it looks like when there are fish rolling outside your front door.
