I`ve found Paint to be the easiest way to Re-size. You can also use the Stretch/Skew function on there to resize to a percentage.

I use paint too,

That stretch and skew never works for me. I just tried 100 x100 and it said enter a valid number... icon_scratch

Anyway Kris, your photo looks great as thumbnail and bigger Image. I always find it so easy using browse function to upload.

I take pics in max resolution for qaulity. Then let photobucket resize to 800 x 600 for this forum. You can choose this in photobucket and it will apply it to all uploads. No faffing around in paint required

Yes, I just set the horizontal pixels to 1000 and it created a small file that was in the 0-4000 range.
If the original was a jpg file it has header info giving height and width details, these are not part of the image but enable applications to handle it. If the editor used, or the camera does not create this header info, phpBB will not be able to determine the size so it will fail, and give an error.

In the 90s .png Images were the new kid on the block, less loss of data compression they said,

But smaller Images like for example .GIF can achieve greater compression than PNG.

Never se .JPEG these days.
