I was going to borrow a friends digital camera and post a picture of my new ride. Last time I posted the image was too big on the screen. How do you ensure the picture comes out a suitable size for the gallery????

Borrow your friends software tooScot_Gore

Your friends camera most likely came with some kind of digital picture editing software. There's also several commercial packages he/she might have. PhotoShop is probably the most common. It's generally pretty easy in any of this software to re-size a picture.

Good Luck

standards that would allow your pictures to be easily seen by everybody, be of low bandwidth, good size, and sufficient resolution. Most software can do the following:

72 pixels per inch resolution
600 pixels width should be good for most(so it fits in our RBR pane), let the height auto-adjust (use the 'maintain perspective' setting).
Use a JPEG file with around 50% compression to get the size down without getting banding in the colours(look at the sky in a picture, it is the first to go when using .jpg compression).
"convert" in linux is free and has the best resampling I knowPeterRider
