John the easiest way to resize images (for a technophobe) is probably paint. A programme that comes with all PCs. It is usually found in 'accessories' .

Open the photo that you want to resize, then click 'image' then Resize/Skew If you reduce the horizontal & vertical by 50% you make it 1/4 of its original size.

I'm not a photobucket user so don't know but does it not give you the option to resize on upload or alternatively to set the size of image to display when it gives you the link. I use Picassa (Google photo hosting) which does both of these.

I think we need to retain the IMG tags - much easier when posting on mutliple forums to just copy and paste the whoel lot across - which I believe you could have done JP.

if you need help resizing pictures i use a program called pixresizer (available here) http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm its free and perhaps the thing i like the most is that it will do bulk images so if you have a whole folder it will resize them all with a few clicks

I don't think Photobucket offers you sizing options anymore but all my pictures from there seem to automatically come up as 800x600 anyway?
