I have some pics of the progress, or lack of progress, to this point, but it seems they are over 3 mb so I can't seem to post them.
Anybody have any ideas on resolving this issue? Any help would be appreciated...
2 ideas for you.
1) upload your pictures to www.Imgur.com
and then click on the new thumbnail and right click your mouse, then select "Copy Image Location" or words to that effect.
Then you can click on the yellow Landscape icon and paste the URL to the pix there, works like a charm.
2) GIMP is a great program and runs in any computer language, Windoze, Linux, MacOS e.g.
load the pix, then select "Scale Image" and enter just one number, the 1st at the top..... try a width of 600 or less, press ENTER and it scales it.
then use Left Shift, Control, 'E' which will cause it to Export the new scaled image... I just let it over-write the existing image, keeps the same name.
GIMP is a breeze to cut out just a tiny part of an image.....
Use Tools/Selection Tools/Rectangle Select
then just drag the mouse to enclose only the part you want to show us.
Then do 'Alt I' and 'I' and it will cut out only what you selected.
again, works like a charm and super fast to use.
