POSTING IMAGES ON FOCU

FOCU posting images help: http://foc-u.co.uk/index.php/page,howto.html

Suggested best maximum image dimensions, in pixels, for FOCU forum posts:

Width: 800 pixels

Height: 500 pixels

RESIZE IMAGES

Microsoft Paint (previously called Paintbrush) is included with Windows, so it is the most universal application to resize an image on a Windows PC.

Procedure:

(1) rclick on the image file in Windows Explorer
(2) lclick on 'Open with' in the pop-up-box
(3) Scroll down the list of applications and lclick on 'Paint'
(3) The image will open in Paint and the size of the image, in pixels, will be displayed on the bottom left
(3) In Paint, lclick on Image>Resize
(4) In the box that opens lclick, 'Pixels' & 'Maintain aspect ratio'
(5) lclick either 'width' or 'height' in the box and enter the number of pixels required. The other dimension will automatically change to maintain the original image aspect ratio.
(6) lclick on 'OK' in the pop-up-box
(7) lclick, 'File'> 'Save'. The original image file will be overwritten with the new image file.
(8 ) Alternatively, to keep the original image file, lclick on 'Save as'
(9) lclick on the same file type as the original image file (normally .jpg).
(10) Enter a new file name
(11) lclick 'Save'
