Hello All in this tutorial I am going to show you how to edit your photos so that they will easily upload here on RC ForumZ.

The first thing that you will need is some photo editing software. The one that I like is Irfanview. It is freeware, it works very well and it is very easy to use.

The first thing you should do is crop (cut out) your photo. You can do this by dragging a box around the part that you want.

In this menu you can see a great deal of information about your photo. As you can see the photo even after being cropped is still rather large.

This photo will not upload onto RC Forumz and will have to be resized.

640X480 is a good size. It is possible to have a larger photo like 1024X768 but if it was taken with a high megapixel camera it may have a large file size still so it will not upload and you will have to resize it again to make it work. For thoes of you that are concerned about the picture size. 640X480 was the standard resolution of a 14" CRT monitor. That basic photo size will give more than enough definition to show what ever you are trying to show.

After you have finished adjusting your photo and you are happy with your result you should save it!

You can do this by clicking on the file menu and clicking on save as.

From this dialogue box you can pick the place where you want to save your photo, rename the photo. An optional step is to set the file size.
