Sometimes all the posts are cut off if you view the forums in IE. No problems with Chrome and Firefox, though.Cool

Oh, no that wasn’t it.  It’s that when I embeded the Youtube video, it was wider than the forum, so it widened the whole thing… to underneath the right hand bar.

Oh, the site that was :(

@ freewarelite: I use FF (I only use IE when it is absolutely necessary). But all’s working now. Loved that video.

Phoenix: As best I can remember yes, it keeps the pic looking good even when making it smaller. I’ve done a ton of pics lately and keeping track of which ones I did what to and what they looked like in detail is beyond my brain’s ability.

The “failures” tho are easy to remember because there’s only been one. That was when I tried to change the size of an animated GIF with it. And then Locutus stepped in with his article about changing the size of a GIF with Gimp.

So I’d say give it a try if you have the space on your computer for another program, you can always remove it if it doesn’t work.

One other idea I have I don’t want to post here, so check you PM inbox in a couple minutes.

@ Wheezer: Ok, great. I’ll go dig around on my external drive for the old install file and get it up and running again. Gimp is still downloading anyway … and given how slow my connection speed can be, it might take a while before it’s done.

Do keep the installer.  It’s not often that they update, and plus there are so many great things to do with it.  Even if you don’t keep the file readily accessible, zip it up and keep it.

@ Locutus: Yep, I keep all my old install files on my external drive. You never know when you’ll need them … like now! Actually, I originally d/l-ed FastStone on Ashraf’s recommendation because it did batch resizing. I hadn’t thought about it for this task, but Wheezer jogged my memory. So here goes nothing! And if it works, well Gimp can go into the install files on my external drive for future use, if and when it is needed.

Thanks guys. You’ve been really, really helpful.

Ya know, I have over …. (Windows is counting my downloads folder) 38GB of downloads.  I should really offload some onto my external drives.

@ Locutus: I’ve been curbing my download problem of late – I was, to put it in the words of my other half, a download junkie. Never use most of it, just d/l it and keep it for the future if needed. Thank goodness for external drives. Most of my comp is taken up with study material now. I have thousands upon thousands of pdfs of research material. Speaking of which, I have been in assignment-avoidance mode for most of the day, but the deadline is fast approaching … so back to it …

Good luck.  Surprised  BTW, if you think your downloading problem is too much, Adam Savage from Mythbuster’s is worse:

Go to 2:00 and watch for a minute. I think he mentions how much stuff is in his Creative Projects folder.

Sorry I had to cut off the edge.

I love Mythbusters. We get it on Discovery Channel on cable here. Did you ever see this segment that never went to air? Very funny indeed.

Hi everyone! I was wondering if someone might be able to help me. We have had a new logo done up for our organisation and we have been trying to upload it on to our website. However, it has be resized to a smaller size. Problem is, it loses a lot of quality and comes out blurry on the website. Does anyone know of a prog that can downsize images and actually keep the image quality? I’d be grateful for any assistance.


 
Picasa, PhotoScape, and IrfanView are excellent freeware options.
