I want to upload some pictures to a website, but it won't accept pictures greater than 2MB. Unfortunately, all my photos are over this threshhold so my beloved pictures can't be seen by my friends.
There is a programme which lets me reduce them but its only for XP, and I'm using Vista.
Is there any way I can reduce the size of the photos by changing the settings?
Thank you, The JB.

Re: The size of the images are too big
Use your favourite image editing software in Vista. Or use the software that came on CD with your camera (if it is not the one that runs on XP only).
Anyway as alternative solution you can either shoot photos in lower resolutions (1Mpix for example) and then the files won't be so big. But you will have only the small photo and no large one.
Or shoot as usual, then switch camera to "play" mode and when viewing images on camera, there is a menu option to resize the images - you can resize them to 1Mpix for example.
In the meantime search web for some free image editing software for Vista.

It appears your website is made using "Wordpress", a popular management system for website creation.
When adding photos to your site, their are Three main things to keep in mind.
1. Physical dimensions of the photo (If you are taking very high resolution photos, you may be exceeding the width and height limitation of the template you are using. This can be fixed by opening the image in something like "GIMP" or "Photoshop" and "resizing it" to the appropriate size.
For example it looks like your main page photos are width: 944px; height: 708px;
So as long as you ensure all images are resized to these dimensions, they will look good on your main page.
2. File size: This is generally only an issue with very high resolution images. Some hosting companies set a limit of 2MB or so per image being uploaded, This keeps attackers from trying to upload larger files disguised as an image to your site.
You can check a files size by opening the folder the pictures are in, right click one of the images you wish to use, then from the menu that pops up choose "Properties"
In this box you should see where it says "Size" 10.1MB (It will differ from the example)
If the "Size" is larger than your website allows (This information can be obtained from the company your website is hosted with)
3. File type: The most common files that are used online are JPEG, GIF (animated image), and PNG.
JPEG (jpg used as actual extension) and png should upload with no problem as long as they meet the first two requirements.
RAW, TIF, and other formats can be viewed on your computer, but may not appear properly on your website.
If you are unsure of any of the above, your hosting company should be able to provide all the image details you need in order to upload photos properly.
I hope this helps out some, feel free to ask questions as needed.

Just what exactly are you trying to do. Your picture to be uploaded and become the profile picture in a website profile page (like Facebook or yahoo or gmail)?
First of all you need to save the picture as jpeg format (recommended format for image and picture. You will need to shorten the image size of the picture. Because most of picture uploader needs at utmost 150 kb size of the image file. (In case your picture exceeds the allowable size.. there is a free software that you can use to cut the image size of your picture (like Image Resizer program)
Place your mouse over the upper right corner of your current profile picture or temporary image, and click on the pencil icon that appears.
Select "Browse" to find a photo on your computer to upload.
Select the photo to upload, check the box certifying that you have the right to distribute the picture and that it is not ****, and click "upload picture." If the picture is an acceptable size and file type, it will display.
If you have a webcam, you can choose "Show Camera" to take an instant profile picture. Be sure to select "Allow" so that Facebook can access your camera and microphone. Then, click the camera icon to take a picture, and choose "Save Picture" to set it as your profile picture.
However, on some occasion this will not upload pictures with larger size....My suggestion to you is to download Image Resizer software... Install this software to your computer... To use this.. find your pictures and right click to it.. Click the resize picture and it will copy with a smaller size (pictures with 2mb will resize to almost 80 kb... then select all pictures with lesser size and let this be the one to be uploaded..
Hope this help. Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks
