1) Our guidelines require any pictures posted to the forum be 1024 pixel at the widest size so everyone can view them comfortably. There are a few ways to resize your picture depending on which software you are using. With Adobe Photoshop it's as below, select Image - Image size.

3) After resizing for web it's recommended to run Unsharp mask at 150% 0.3 pixels 0 threshold to account for loss of sharpness by downsizing (Filter - Sharpen - Unsharp Mask).

6) Then choose 'Medium', be warned the quality which Powertoy produces when resizing is not acceptable to most who enjoy photography. It is a quick, simple, easy and free method however.
