Hey i just found out about microsofts powertoys for windows XP, basically go to microsoft ( link below) and scroll down to find the easy resize program, download, install ( just tested it works fine)

heres the link...

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx

when you have images in a folder on your computer you can browse it and right click any image and choose resize image which now displays on right click menu... you then have a window with choices of preset sizes or custom size if you click advanced. How easy is that, it also gives you the choice between resizing the image or making a smaller copy of it...

Hope this helps some new users with uploading problems..
