I have a laptop computer.
My digital camera is older, but I can use the card reader to upload photos.
But the photos are all too big to put on here.
My cell phone does not have a camera.

So how do I downsize a photo to put on here?
I was able to crop some, but they're still too big.

I had the sme problem. You can go to shrinkpictures.com. There is also an app called create avatar. Makes it so simple. Give it a try. I think it was Olivoyle who told me.

Hi, Darmf,
Thank you! I will give it a try. All of my photos are too big, even with cropping.
The laptop runs on Windows8.
I am still in the stone age.

Windows 8 is actually pretty new. unless you meant windows 98 (ninety-eight)....

there is also a (free) website that will resize it as well. i am not sure of the address however...

Sinfulsot,
It's windows 8, the newest version out.
For some reason, I am not having any luck with shrinkpictures, but will keep trying.
