Every time I send in a picture to any sight it is to big, can some one tell me how to shrink it.
Thanks!

What are you using to edit your photos?

If you are using Photoshop, use the command Image>Image Size>
That will open a dialog box where you can resize your image - enter the pixel size for one side (usually width for a landscape image) and leave the "Constrain Proportions" box checked - that will allow PS to keep your aspect ratio, automatically setting the size for the other side. For example, if you have a photo cropped landscape at 3:2, and enter 1024 in the width, PS will resize the height to 683. Coincidentally, that is a popular size for A.net and other popular photo sites.

If you are using a different program, the menu items may be different, but the concept is the same. And remember - when you have resized your image, use "Save As" and CHANGE THE FILE NAME - that way, your original file remains unaltered!

What size are you trying to make it? The image you linked to is 800x600px now, you can't really make that larger without effecting the quality, are you trying to make it smaller? And what software are you using to edit?

I tried using some programs but it doesn't work. I don't have Photoshop either.
