I've been trying to upload some new pics but it keeps saying the size is too big, and I forgo t how I shrank them last time.


Any suggestions?

I would use http://www.picresize.com to resize it to whatever the dimensions are that is the maximum.

EDIT: Wait, you do mean the pic size, and not the file size right?

Do you have MSPaint on your computer? MS Office Picture Manager?
Either of those can be used to change the dimensions or the filetype.
Bitmap and TIF formats have large file sizes.
If the issue is filesize rather than height or width, you could export the original file as a GIF, JPG, or PNG file.

Whatever I need to do to get the "500 x 500" kb max to upload

Where are you trying to upload this?
As a pic on your profile page?
As an attachment to a post?
As an avatar?


Limits for picture are on size (height x width in pixels) and/or file size in kb.
500 x 500px makes sense, but I don't know of any place on UG where that's a limit.
500 x 500 kb doesn't make sense. There is only one number in any filesize limit.

Yeah, as an attachment to a post.

Okay, I did some research.
For attachments to post, the limits are 500px x 500px, 97.7 kb

You might want to use photobucket or tinypic and upload there,
using the resize function in the upload process.
Select the size for "Message Boards"
Then copy the code from the result page
Paste that as text into your post.

If you still want to upload the image directly from your computer, do this:

1 - Open the image in Paint
2 - Click "Image" at the top, then roll down to "Attributes...". click it.
3 - This will show you the dimensions of your image.
4 - Which ever is larger, width or height, divide 500 by that number and multiply by 100.
5 - Click "cancel" on the attributes box.
6 - Click "Image" at the top and roll down to "Stretch/Skew"
7 - Enter the result from step 4 in for both height and width. Whole number. No decimal. Always round down, never up. EX: 66.666666... becomes 66, not 67.
8 - Click "Okay" on the Stretch/Skew window.
9 - Click "File" and roll down to "Save" if you want to replace the old file with the smaller version, or "Save as ..." to save with a new name. Save the file.
