    Sizing an attachment

    I took a Print Screen shot of a window, and wanted to copy it to a post here (just as a test). I got an error message that said 'file too large'. How do I reduce the size of the screen shot from 768 K bytes to the 100 K byte limit while retaining all of the information?

    First crop it to show ONLY what is needed, then resize it. This can be done with most image editing programs, and the ones that are part of Windows are NOT worth in using. Check the Graphic Applications area for more ideas.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Another option is to use HardCopy to take your screen shots.

    Thanks for the link Francois, I note that it is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware (Oh but ask for a tip!). I'll give it a go next week.

    Re: Sizing an attachment

    I've been using it for years and find it very convenient. Just be careful when it is minimized to your system tray, as one of the 'click' options is to print a screen shot. I think you can define in the setup what left-click and right-click do, but it is still very easy to find your printer kicking in...

    Re: Sizing an attachment

    Thanks Leif, I'll look out for that. Just one thing - shouldn't this thread be in Software? Otherwise you words of wisdom will be lost!

    You can configure each function to print, open the program, save the picture, .... in the options.

    That was probably the summer gnome. You must now put the winter gnome on!
