Click on Account Settings.

Go to the Album Settings tab.

Under Links you will see numerous check boxes. Add a check to IMG thumb.

This will provide the thumbnail link below each of your images for easy copy and paste. I wish more people used that feature.

Thats an interesting alternative.

I googled resizing images and looks like the adding code to resize a large pic it is a royal PITA.

I generally resize pictures to 640x480 or 320x240 before uploading.
(invert for for vertical cards)

This method you do not lose the detail of your scan/photo, but it makes the thread you post in easier to navigate. The thumbs are shown and one can click on them to see the detailed image.

Scrolling through a thread of dozens of images sizes is not my idea of fun.

switch to picasa. The link for the image has a portion near the end that is 's' followed by the size in pixels.

If the image I want to put here is:

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-x...1/IMG_4327.JPG



that s731 is the size. I simply change it to s500 and blam! it's reduced to the exact size I want to present in the thread.
