Post by SuzanneJack » 03 Jan 2017 16:36

How do I post a pic from paint? I keep trying different sizes but the only ones it lets me post are way too small.

Hi Suz!

In Paint:
1. load your pic
2. select crop button in order to remove the dotted line around the pic
3. select resize button, click on pixels, remove the check from Maintain Aspect Ratio, enter 640 X 480 (Horiz X Vert)
4. click ok, save as: name of your pic in the folder that you have for pictures and save as type: JPEG

Now that you have your pic ready to post, go to the Stuck Forum, at the Top read "Important for all forum visitors", the directions for posting a pic. let me know if you need more help!

That's the thing Pat, in my paint it has resize/skew and no pixels just % or degrees

a little correction if u shall use the pic on this forum
The image must be at least 0 pixels wide, 0 pixels high and at most 500 pixels wide and 375 pixels high. The submitted image is 640 pixels wide and 360 pixels high.

so i always use 499x280

the system doesn't seem to mind a 640/480 and it is not too large. I wouldn't worry about it.
