    I can't find it anywhere. You don't have a listed "Media Page". If you upload it again to the thread, we can merge the posts so it appears in the right place.
     
  3. I hate this new site! All the pics are gone and I can't download new ones because I am told that the files are "too big". That never happened before, it was so easy. I'm tempted to just discontinue here but I would hate to loose all my cat friends. The advice I have gotten is useless, I am not techie and don't know half of the time what people are talking about to solve my comp problems.

    Are you using a camera and a desktop or laptop computer, or taking photos with a smartphone and uploading them from it?

    If you're using a smartphone, the easiest thing to do is download a resizer from your app store. Photo & Picture Resizer for Android phones, for example, is free and very simple to use. It leaves the original and automatically saves a resized version you can upload.

    If you're using a camera, you can reduce the size of the photos you take under settings, for example, switch from L to M. Google the make, model, and "change photo size" for instructions.

    You could also download a free program called Irfanview for your computer that makes resizing easy. You can open a photo in it, make it smaller, and save the resized version in a new folder (or rename it and save it to the original folder).

  5. Using a little cheap $88.00 camera from Target that takes wonderful pictures, no smartphone, I have an old flip phone that works for me. I will try the Irfanview and see how that works. Thanks.

    Here's another free resizer that's gotten excellent reviews:
    FastStone Photo Resizer

    Edited to add:

    Not sure which picture it was, but I'll post another.
