can anyone help me with some resizing tips.  for some reason the appropriately-sized jpeg files i've tried to upload are not recognized by the host site.

of course, my photos look like drunken recollection compared to the quality i see from some of you; but, you never know when something interesting or beautiful will accidentally come to rest on my memory card.

Unfortunately, no MAC experience on my end.  Hopefully, there is someone on the board with some background with a MAC.

been a while but I seem to recall having to manually add the ".jpg" to the filenames on my G3 when trading files from MAC to PC. You might want to check that the file extension is there.

whoops.  thanks for the help.  i knew y'all would lead me in the right direction.

One other thing:  Try to use unique filenames when uploading to http://www.bigbendgallery.com/uploads/ so you don't overwrite any existing pictures.   :shock:
