Hi all!!  I noticed that many of you have pictures at the bottom of your forum posts.  I'm having a hard time finding pictures that are small enough to be uploaded to PBS (20kb).  Is that something that can be done on my computer (without having to buy a computer program)?  I would love to be able to put some graphics up.  Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give me.

Bill, if you are using Windows you can use Picture Manager (right click to 'open with' or go to the control panel) to save a new copy and reduce the size of pictures you want in your signature.

I use Photoscape to edit my pics to fit for my siggy line. It is a free downloadable program you can find on the web.
