Ok, Digital Cameras are starting to be able to create immensly HIGH resolution images up to 3488x2592 and higher.

These are wonderful if you have a 60"Plasma screen :) However Even for me who has a 22" Monitor, they are way too big when posted directly onto the forum.

Imagine what it's like for someone with a smaller monitor

So it's always much more preferable to post an image of 800x600 or at the most 1024x768 maximum. At least people don't have to scroll for 5 minutes up and down :)

So an Image editor is required. Here's where Irfanview comes into it. It's completely free and free from spyware (well the last time I got it it was)

Irfanview allows manipulation of images in a number of ways. It's not a full blown image editor but a cut down useful little program for adding making a few changes to images. Most importantly - RESIZING :)

You can even do Batch conversion. Make a copy of the files (so you can keep the really high res ones), grab all of the files you copied and drag them into Irfanview, tell Irfanview to resize to a smaller resolution and off you go.
