Hello, I am in the process of making my own site and it is basically just going to be pictures. Throughout my experince on the Internet I have found some funny pictures and have saved them. I was wondering if there is any way I can decrease the size of some of the pictures to make all of them one size? I would like my site to be a nice, organized site so if there are any tips you can provide for me on how to do that it will be very helpful. Also, in your opinion, what is the best free web-host to use and what are some good URL convetors? You know like www.freewebs.com/somesitehere and change it to www.somethinghere.sg.com. Thanks for your help.

Also, how do I put a "waterdrop" or "watermark" on my site?

I dont know, isn't there just some option in Paint to like Resize all photos to a certain size? Like resizing every picture at the same time.

No, not in paint. The program I mentioned in #2 is very lightweight (a bit over 800 Kbs)
and only takes a couple of minutes to download and it has batch processing which is what you are after. And it is free.

Ya, i downloaded it. I'm on 56K so i wouldn't want to download something like 30MB. Glad it was 800k! Problem solved! (y)

I am a bit curious as to why you would be looking into "watermarking" when you freely admit that you have taken the pics from the web? If you saved them in the first place, they belong to someone else. Why would you think you can "watermark" them to protect them for yourself? You really are not allowed to use them at all, much less claim them as your own. Even if you edit them in some way, it doesn't make them yours.

Opps, I said I got them from the web? I meant my digital camera. I got some from Yosemite National Park (moose in the road), and a lot other places when I went on a trip in my grandparents motor-home. Sorry, guess i wasnt thinking when I wrote my post.

It's not the taking from the web,.........It's the watermarking to re-use them so no one will steal them from you. :(
