Hi guys! I've had several people ask me how to resize their images to upload to the gallery, so I've decided to do a little tutorial for everyone, hope this helps :DD

This is for Photoshop or Photoshop Elements:



Open up your full size PSD or JPEG image
Go to File>Save For Web

A pop up box will appear saying your image is bigger than what Save For Web is for, just click Yes

The Save For Web screen will come up next
Make sure you select JPEG, change the quality to around 55-60 to keep under the 150Kb size limit, and then change the size at the bottom to 600X600
If using PS, hit ENTER to change the size - if using PSE, the size will change automatically when you change it to 600
Check to make sure that the size is 150Kb or below (under the preview image) If all is well, click on SAVE

And that's it! Happy resizing!! :DD

I know I was lost when I was ready to upload my first layout back in *GASP* 2005! 8| I had no idea how to resize my images, I had tried to just do it in Image Size, but it came out really blurry and not crisp and clean... this way keeps your image crisp ;)
