    Hi everyone. This is my first post but I have been lurkin' for the past month or so. I bought my E-P3 in August. I have been introduced by a friend to legacy lenses and has since been reading the posts here to get information regarding m4/3 camera and adapted lenses as well as native lenses. I find this site very, very informative and the people are very welcoming.

    Looking forward to more posts. Happy to be a part of the group.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

    KVG, that's a good one. Seriously, I am using a Mac, and I would like to know what's the best way to resize my photos. I'm a Mac noob as well as photography noob.

    Alan, thanks for the link. I tried the "manage attachment" route. I still was not able to upload. Apparently my file was still too large. I did try the Flickr route as well. I couldn't see my photo. All I see is a blue square icon with "?". The iPhoto doesn't have an option to resize my images.

    Drag the thumbnail of the photo from iPhoto to the Preview icon in the Apple Dock, this will open the photo.
    In Preview go to TOOLS > Adjust Size. There, you make the adjustments for jpeg, 1024 max. height x 2048 max. width

    if you open your photos in iphoto, you can then go to FILE - EXPORT and change sizes and what nots there :)

    this will also work(with less options) in PREVIEW(the default "show me a photo" program)
