Default Re: HOW TO: Add your photos

If you are trouble with the upload timing out or receive an error such as 'missing security token' then please try resizing the image first. I recommend the following software.

If you are a Windows XP user i recommend the Microsoft Powertoys resizer

Image Resizer
ImageResizer.exe
521 KB

Or if you are Windows Vista or Windows 7 I recommend Prish Resizer (this also works with XP)

Prish Image Resizer 1.0
Prish Image Resizer 1.0
2.23MB

Here is a really simple non-download resize tool.

rsizr is a Flash application that lets you resize JPG, PNG, and GIF images on your computer. With rsizr, in addition to normal image rescaling and cropping, you can also resize images using a new image resizing algorithm called seam carving (a method of image retargeting) that tries to keep intact areas in your image that are richer in detail.

start rsizing!
It's free, of course!
