    Mmm never used it mate so can't help you out, however IMO the best and greatest of all free imaging/editing programs out there is Irfanview and you'd do well to download it, fantastic bit of kit :thumbsup:

    I'm sure if some Picasa guru comes along he'll help you out though ;)

    Don't use Picasso myself. :rotfl: but look for something like 'resize' or 'image resize', can't imagine it would be called much else...

    Your looking to resize width to 800 pixels ( the height should do itself?) then 'save as 'image xxxx with a filesize of around 100k. This might mean lowering the quality to reduce the file size.

    Hope this helps..... :hiya:

    In picasa to resize do the following

    1. Select picture by single click on picture
    2. Picture is now in picture tray (bottom left)
    3. Click on export
    4. In name of exported folder type say, resize pictures
    5. Move slider on pixel bar to say 640
    6. J peg slider 85%
    7. Click OK
    8. You should now have a folder on your desktop called resize pictures
    9. Your picture should be in there ready for you to use.
    10. If picture is bigger than 120kb (max size allowed by av forum) redo resize using 480 on pixel bar or change j peg slider to 75% or so.

    Easy init.

    I had to disable my firewall "Norton Internet Security" to get it to work.
