What operating system do you have on your computer? There will probably be a program on it that will do the job.

I'm sure there are other programs doing this job. Adobe Photoshop does, but one picture at a time so it is a bit inconvenient when you have 50 or 80 pictures to reduce

Irfanview http://www.irfanview.com/ is quite useful for resizing/renaming batches of photos and is also free!

However what changed is that we have prevented our server from attempting to resize much larger photos which a few users were uploading, as the numbers being uploaded was leading to the forum slowing or stopping the website. Resizing photos requires alot of server memory - so it can't really be done if several users are requesting it at once. Much better to do it on your own computer using one of the suggested programs - this will mean you can upload the photos many times faster too. Better still, you could simply use something like Flickr to host your photos and simply hotlink them from your reports (Flickr gives you the code to do this from forums).

Just really started out hill walking and have been using your site for all my hints and tips. Great site. I am looking to print off maps but when I try it only prints a tiny section of the map in the top left hand corner. I am not great with computers and any help would be appreciated. Also what is the map scales for each increment on the zoom function of the map. (ie Totally zoomed in would be what scale? Second increment -what scale and so on.)
As to GPS systems - I was looking at Garmin Etrex 10 and was wondering how easy it would be to upload files from the site for chosen walks? Would it give me a visual representation of the walk on a handheld screen or just grid references?
Hope you can help

Having the same problem as Muzzy - printing route maps (or saving them as images) only gives me a very small (200x200) part of the map.
Hope you can help - thanks

It's not a Walkhighlands configuration thing, it's down to your browser - as there are so many different combinations of computer hardware and software it's really tricky to give printing advice via a forum.
If you do a forum search (using the 'Search forums' link next to the magnifying glass at the top right of the white area of the page) you'll find a load of useful tips, though here's a useful link:

(Brilliant site by the way)
