    If you're using XP Paint, you need to do some math:
    Code:
        Target * 100
    p = ------------
          Original
    Target = the desired size
    Original = the original size
    p = percentage to scale it

    If you had an image 1920 across (Original) and wanted to make it fit into a 150 pixel space (Target), you would do the following:
    p = 150 * 100 / 1920
    p = 15000 / 1920
    p = 7.8125

    Punch 7.8125 into XP's resize box for both width and height and BAM! You got your 150 wide picture. If it errors, you'll have to round to the nearest whole number and crop it. In this case, 8% is the closest which will result in a 154 pixel wide image. Here's the math for that if you're interested:
    Code:
             original * p
    target = ------------
                 100
    target = 1920 * 8 / 100
    target = 15360 / 100
    target = 153.6

    Paint obviously rounded that up to 154. Ain't maths great?

    lol noooo. I got confused just reading that.

    When I was setting up my profile every photo I entered didn't fit (was too big) after several attempts I said "to hell with it" and decided to start snooping the forum. I was surprised to see a photo actually appeared. I'm sure I'll change it one day but I'm not ready to deal with that frustration just yet.

    Thanks for the help

    If you ask nicely, you might be able to send him the picture and he can fix it for you.
