KINDA ON SUBJECT: When I resize a photo for upload, I'm left with white space the size of the original all around the photo. Can someone please explain how to eliminate this annoyance?

What software are you using?

Can't help ya with that one.

 

In Fireworks, there's two options for resizing - image size and canvas size. It looks like your software is resizing the image (foreground), but leaving the canvas (background) unchanged. Check for an option like that (foreground vs. background, or canvas). You could also select just the image, copy it to the clipboard and paste it into a new image. Most image manipulation programs I've used will import the contents of the clipboard, so if you select File/New, it'll have the size of the clipboard image as the default new image size.

 

Hopefully that made some sense and will help. I'm kinda tired right now, so it may not have...

Sept1c_tank -- after you resize try doing a crop around the edges of your photo. Hopefully that will get rid of any of the extraneous background whitespace.

And finally ... ChrisfromMS -- Eeeewww! And ROFL. And ewwwww!

Tried that...it still comes up with the large white background.
