Easy (and free) way to resize pics for posting on here

There are several free picture resizing sites online, but I've found this one really quick and easy:

[www.picresize.com]

You just upload the original pic, put in the setting to make it no more than 614kb (the limit on here) and then download it again.

It automatically renames it with rsz at the front, so the original pic stays the same if you want to use it for something else.

I can't believe I used to mess around for ages with Photoshop .....
There's an even easier way if you use a Mac: double click picture in Finder and it will open in preview. Click "File>duplicate" and a copy will appear, then ask to save that copy: at the bottom of the "save" popup there's a "quality" slider which can be dragged up and down to whatever kb/mb size desired.
Just load your pics to Flickr and then you can cut and past the Embed code with a choice of 8 or so sizes.

Don't you have to set up a Flickr account to do that?
Yes and even worse you have to have a Yahoo account!!

Many people do have Yahoo accounts. Those who have BT Internet.

I'm not sure that's true?

I have a Flickr account but to the best of my knowledge I've never had a Yahoo account!
