Resizing photos for the website was created by Makotosun

Well - the ongoing saga of cameras and phones taking amazing photos which are too large for the site to manage uploading. :Ugh

I am working on some fixes for that, but in the meantime, some folks have asked "Is there an easier way to resize the damn things?" Well - Mako and Google are here to the rescue!

If you have a windows machine, go to this link: imageresizer.codeplex.com/releases/view/82827 and download the file to your computer, then click on the file and install it. It is totally free. Once you install it, and then select a file using windows explorer, you will get a new menu option when you right click called . . . Resize Pictures!



Select that option and you will see a new pop up window that gives you a number of options as follows:




The default resize is 840x480 which is fine, saves server space, should display faster, etc. The largest size that I know will work well on the site is medium which is 1366x768, which should fill the display out quite nicely. You can try the large size which will still be a huge decrease in size from a normal Iphone or Galaxy shot and also much smaller than a DSLR or even most modern point and shoot cameras.

Once resized, your photos should no longer be an issue for the site.

Thanks for following along!
IF it isn't one thing, it's another.
