Read Terrorized and you will be good!

One of the greatest moments of my life was when I walked up and saw my Ural.

And then when I got on the road, Oh $#!+, oh man, oh $#!+, oh man, this is so neat.

Open up the picture, the right click the picture, it will give you options what to open it up with.

Open it up with Paint if that allows you a choice. Other programs also allow re-sizing but that is an easy one.

There is a re-size click area in the upper left, its on Percentage, use 50, it will adjust both dimensions to that.

Then save it, see what size it is. Works for 350K kb size (in properties) - not sure if that is the max or not.

Another way to do it is to limit the pixel size in your camera. I don;'t have a smart phone so don't know how that works, it does on the Cameras I have in the menu choices. Each mfg is different there but they will have a choice in the pixel size if you can find the menu item.

400 K bytes if memory serves. Or I might be thinking of something else!

If you used an iPhone to take the photo you can email it to yourself with the option to resize smaller. It's then in the 'Sent' folder if you still want to use the phone to post it here. Need to view it and add it to Photos first, so you will have 2 pix there, the most recent is the resized one.
