    There are several options.

    You can use a hosting service like Photobucket http://smg.photobucket.com as mentioned in the first post. Photobucket will reduce the size of the photo when you upload it. Usually people use the Photobucket supplied link to post the photo on a forum like this one. This option is good if you take lots of photos and video and want to share them with a variety of friends and family. The down side is the link needs to be copied and pasted and that's an extra step. In addition to Photobucket there are many other photo/video hosting services, search and choose one you like.

    Another option is to find and download one of the many "shareware" photo editing programs. Some are even free but like most things free it is usually limited or crippled in some way. Some operating systems have built-in photo editing and cataloging programs that come with the system. Any of those programs can edit the size of your photo down to a size that is acceptable and then you can save it on your computer and post it. This is a better option if all you want to do is post the occasional photo. There are some high end photo editing programs for serious users or professionals but they can cost big dollars.
    Cheers

    Way too complicated for an old truck driver like me. I like manual engines, manual transmissions, no logs. The rest of it is all bovine excrement.
    Crime wouldn't pay if the government ran it.
