Default REsize your super huge pictures

Heres another tip for pictures guys. Sometimes pics are TOO HUGE to use anywhere. So when you post them they just go BLAH all over the page.

For me I like using stuff that is no fuss so I found this FREE little application. You install it and from then on you can just right click a picture and select "Resize with Light Image Resizer" and BOOM a new copy is made in a more web friendly size.

Upload that resized pic then delete it and the rest of the world will thank you. It doesnt mess with your original at all!


Here's a link

Some people are like slinkys. Not worth much but funny as heck when pushed down stairs.

Thanks for posting this, Fetch.

I've been saving some of those too huge photos on my hard drive, hoping I could find a store that would print them on something waterproof. Then I'd have tarps to put over the shade tree garage ;=) . Guess that dream is gone :=( .

Regards and Have a great day,

Culver

Take them to a modern large scale sign shop that does digital printing---they can blow them up billboard size on out door quality vinyl banner material! I was an old-school billboard sign painter for many years and those new-fangled machines took away my profession!

The programmers that made Light Image Resizer broke their FREE, NAGLESS program by adding a bunch of ads and a countdown timer to it so heres the old version that works on Windows xp up to windows 8. Just install and enjoy it.
No nags, no ads, just sweet, sweet picture squashin!

Jeannie could you add this to the first post for me please?
