What is a program I can use to resize pics to put on my site? I downloaded the trial version of Corel and used it to resize a couple pics. But I am not going to pay the big price tag for it. Is there a program for around $50 that is easy to use and can resize pics? Thanks!

I use Adobe Fireworks for all of my images and graphics...but without breaking the bank here are some alternatives.

Free Online Tool (http://www.freeresizer.com/) to resize your images...easy to use.

GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/) - is a free program you can use...probably the most popular free open source image/graphic software for windows.

Serif Software (http://graphicssoft.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ&sdn=graphicssoft&cdn=compute&tm=6&f=20&su=p284.8.150.ip_&tt=3&bt=1&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.freeserifsoftware.com/) another free program you can use

I use Photosize.com , its by far the easiest to use and make the picture not look all distorted when resizing.

I downloaded GIMP. It is exactly what I was looking for. Simple and cheap...heck, FREE! Photosize.com would be even easier. BUt I will use Gimp, that way I can add text if needed. Thanks guys!
