Use Faststone photo resizer. It's a doddle to use and once you put in the required resolution it remembers the setting.

Hi there, Howsitwork,

Plus 1 for Faststone resizer.

Not only can you re-size, you can also add captions and/or titles within your photo.  This helps explain the photo's place in the sequence of operations the post describes.  Alternatively, you can use the facility to 'watermark' your photos to protect them from being 'borrowed'! 
Best regards,

Pete W.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, you haven't seen the latest change-note!

+1 use this myself for all my pics, even in my pics albums & saves a lot of space on your hard drive. Worth downloading.

Might get to Ripon tomorrow afternoon. Sometimes useful , other times pointless but worth a wander

Bought this for 20 this morning at Pedham Place. It's barely used with just 2mm wear on the wheel but I don't need that anyway, it's being converted to a carbide lapping machine, the 350rpm is perfect for that.

Finally found a Machinist Level!
It's a12 inch Moore & Wright in nice condition, it started out as $195.00 but I bought it for $80.00 from the used tool store.
