I am not a techno wizard and I want to put a photo or two in a sig line but they are a tad too big. how do i get them the right size to fit the size limit? They are 50 and they need to be 20 or 30....

I've tried several times, and can't get these to work for either my signature line nor my avatar...any help would be much appreciated.

You could try www.shrinkpictures.com .

I'm not sure if this is the one I used or not.

Good luck! =0)
