I can't upload, the image is too large. I use Kodak EasyShare. Can anyone give me any help. I have also asked the webmaster.

If you are trying to post the picture direct from the camera then that right there would be the problem... You must first resize to no greater than 1000 pixel x 800 pixel (or under 195kb) in size. If you need help in resizing feel free to send me a PM and I will give you my email to send it to... I can post it to the gallery for you and explain what I did...

meems, you can even use whatever photo program is installed on your computer to re-size.. what program do you have for looking at pics? whats your computer system? XP? 1000 px wide x 800 tall for landscapes and 1000 tall x 800 wide for portraits.. just stay under those numbers.. the program will prolly automaticly adjust one when you adjust the other one. So if your doing a landscape orientation photo, start with the longer side (width) resize it to 1000px and see wat the tall side comes out to, if its over 800PX, resize the wide end a bit smaller, say 900PX keep doing this till your within the limits of the gallery.

There is a nifty tool that you can download for microsoft (Blazer can give you the link like he did for me )....all you do is highlight the file name in a folder (it has to be saved on your computer) and then right click with your mouse and choose resize. You can do mass quantities like this and save time (and sanity in my case!). Good luck!!!

I am also looking into why we can't do this automagically. Apparantly our gallery program will resize files that have a dimension problem, but it stops if they are too big in filesize... kind of odd. I am going to think about what we can do on that.

Found in EasyShare program to resize--doesn't mention pixels--75% reduces photo by 25%, 50% by 50%, 25% by 75%-e.g. a 400 X 400 picture is reduced to 100 X 100. Best for web is 400 X 400--. Thumbnails are 96 by 96--Since I have no idea how big my photo is I'll try the 50% first and see if I can upload that way. I'll just keep trying till one size works, hopefully. Thanks for info, will try it if this doesn' work.

Sounds good. I would recommend trying to arrive at around 700-800 pixels in height or width for optimum viewing here. This will be big enough to see some detail, but small enough not to cause problems loading and viewing.
