Here's a couple of links for those interested in editing/sorting pics.

The first one is called Picassa and is a free Google tool mainly for sorting your pics but with a basic Photo editor as well. Also handy for creating folders for print etc. Makes it very easy to find your pics on the computer if you're like me and have them stashed all over the place. It will automatically pick up all pics on the computer once you download it.

This one is called Gimp and is about the best of the online free downloads for editing. It's basically a cheap version of Photoshop, more like PS Elements but it's freeware. Works best if you're using Firefox BTW.

Finally, this Image Resizer is brilliant. Once downloaded, (Very fast), you just right click on any of your images and the Resize option is on your menu. Click on the size you want and off you go. And it doesn't affect the original. Can't remember if it does custom sizes but it's rarely that most people would want that anyway. (Edit; Just checked - You can)

Cheers, Hope these help a couple of you.

While I'm at it - a little tip for those that may not know it....

To rename all or a quantity of pics in a folder in one go;
(Just to get rid of those stupid jpeg numbers really!!)

Open the folder and left click on the first pic you want to rename.
Scroll down to the last one you want to rename.
Hold down the shift key and left click on this last pic.
All the relevant pics should now be highlighted.
Right click on the first pic, scroll down to rename and do so as normal.
Hit Enter key and all your pics should now be automatically renamed with the same name but ascending numbers. (Mary 1, Mary 2, 3 etc.)
Right click on any blank space to clear highlighting.

Looks and sounds more complicated than it is - it's actually quite simple and very handy to know.

Doug - Downloaded the Picasa - its really good. It has rearranged all my photos into the one place. It even put them into folders by date. By the way the screen cleaner is excellent too!

Glad you liked them, especially the screen cleaner. It's great for fec*ers like me too lazy to do it themselves!!

Picassa is great and has all sorts of tools for uploading and sorting pics etc. that you'll find as you go along.
