I don't need no stinkin' sleep.....

Been up since three, and I had lots of fresh veggies burnin' a hole in my pocket, lol. So I made some veggie soup. Can't wait for lunchtime.

I use Knorr vegetable bouillion, onions, green onions, garlic, red, orange and green peppers, (just a little of the peppers) whatever fresh veggies I happen to have, a can of seasoned crushed tomatos, bay leaf, rosemary, basil, worstershire...I can't remember what else. Too tired. lol

But it sure smells good.
Ok, I'm too tired... I'm trying to post a picture, from Photobucket, but it's GI-normous. How do I make it a reasonable size?

I have a history of not sleeping well, I have found that if I wake up at midnite and cant get back to sleep, watching tv helps, its my favorite time to worry about everything under the sun LOL. Also ONE advil pm helps me a lot. Never considered COOKING all nite LOL

Still, I think I'd rather wake up to the smell of coffe brewing than veggie soup simmering. As for the picture, I don't know if Photobucket gives you the option of resizing but you can always use a FREE software like Picasa or Irfanview to set the size before you upload. The software that came with your camera should have a setting that controls the size you download so it's in a manageable range. I think Picasa is about the best and easiest way of managing photos and if you don't have it you should look into it.

If not, you can try this: open the picture in Paint and select - Image, Stretch, Skew; then go to Stretch. Make the picture 50% Horizontal and 50% Vertical. Then save w/ a new name. It should make the picture 1/2 the original size - file size too.

Hope this helps.

Flickr has an edit option and I've used it to fix color and brightness balance. I'm new to Picasaweb but trust schatze that it gives some good options.

I had CorelDraw (I think it was Corel) on my last 'puter (the one that died right before Christmas). Haven't searched enough to find the software download info to reinstall - but it was very easy to use.

Thanks ya'll for the suggestions... it was a combo of things. I put it in paint, reduced it severely, and reloaded to photobucket. LOL

Hubby's up now, so I'm going BACK TO BED.

It is free and will also play videos and music. I find it simple but it does a lot, such a cropping, coloring, brightening, resizing. Paste a photo in it or open a photo in it , hit "Image" then "Resize" and you have options of resizing by predetermined sizes, doubling or halving or by percentage. If you have Picasa, you can download directly from your camera and then set the size you always want the image to be when it leaves Picasa. No sizing needed, ever. You also have the opportunity to make web albums directly from the program. For free, these programs can't be beat. If you need a more Photoshoppy kind of software, look at Gimp-also free.

I use Photobucket for all the pix I post here. After you upload your pic, click on edit, then across the top of the photo, click the resize tab. It brings up a pull-down menu that lets you choose several sizes - choose "message board" and voilà!

Yep - that works like a charm! Except my settings are off and I can only paste the link and not the photo. Used to work for me - maybe someone can remind me of proper settings...</P>
