Heeeeeelp!!!

I've been trying to download pics to RIBnet and I keep getting the old "keep your file sizes small than 550X550" or words to that effect.

My camara's lowest res is 480X640, so how do I get it smaller than that?

What am I doing WRONG!!! I've taken my boat cover off twice to photograph it in different resolutions and it's driving me round the bend.......

Someone help. PLEASE

Andy

us a photo editing software package. THERES ONE BUILT INTO XP.( MS photo editor)

you just use resize from the IMAGE prop down menu

its basic but it will get you started - theres loads of others that can do loads such as batch resizing, makes tea and gives you a cream cake also (whew close one)

BJ......Exellent L.O.T.G.L.M.A.O.

Tried your link John and didn't work! Thanks anyway.

The thingy on the XP mr&missus Jackeen, I tried earlier and it cut most of my pic away.....




However I did remember this photo thing I had on disk and I've downloaded it and guess what it worked.

Is a little fiddly though as each pic need to be opened, changed and then resaved. Just a little time consuming, but it's a start.

Keep an eye on RIB gallery to see if it works.

I wonder did you crop the pic which would cut the pic. Resize will just reduce the size and keep the origional layout i.e. 4:3 or whatever. you can distort but can look different- just like your rib

OK, you can get PaintStudio Lite here (I've also updated the link in that other message!)

Paul, will it stretch, thin down the profile, increase seating and console capacity, make the outboard grow (250hp) and generally turn my Koi into a killer whale of a RIB? Oh and fill the chips in the hull.

If it does I WANT IT!!!! Yes Yes Yes.......

Just deaming I suppose.


John, thanks for the new link, am downloading now.

I just import the photo into CorelDraw and then export it again. When you do so it gives you the option of the size of the photo. I just set the width to 500 and tick the 'maintain ratio' box. Easy...when you know how.
