    posting images

    Hi,
    I am still finding it difficult to post pictures to the site
    What software do you recommend for resizing the images?
    I currently have Picasa
    I am trying to learn PhotoShop but finding it hard with the amount of time that I have available to me at present
    Any help would be much appreciated
    Thanks

    You need to size two things:
    1. The pixels on the longest side (keeping aspect ratio the same)
    2. The JPEG compression level, i.e. 'quality' which often will need to be anywhere between 50% and 80%


    This is an easy option http://bd-sizer.software.informer.com/3.3/ BD sizer (google it)
    all image software can do both sorts of re-sizing

    Lightroom is probably a good starting point, because you can start at a fairly basic level of manipulation and work your way up. There are also lots of plugins for Lightroom onto photo sites where you can publish your photos for linking onto sites like ausphoto.

    The one Kym mentioned above is pretty good, once you learn how to use it (shouldn't take long to learn. PM me if you want some help.)
    It also allows you to frame your image and add a basic watermark if you wish.

    I agree with Missionman, either lightroom or even the software that came with your camera (if some come with your camera). if you use a Mac then aperture is handy. Photoshop is a very expensive application that really takes months to get used too. Lightroom or most camera software are fine. This also enables you to to understand the foundations for editing.
