Make your searches more general. Search for “how to post a profile picture”.

You are going to need to shrink it and maybe crop it.

Search google pictures in 200x200 pictures…

how?

I believe elsewhere you said you were on a MAC - go find an image processing app for it. Resizing is a basic function of all image processing apps. Compressing is not the same as shrinking or resizing which is changing the pixel count. Most sites that have size limits limit the pixel size, as we do here.

iPhoto will let you do this. Its an option under edit when you select the photo in there. Shouldn’t be too hard to find.

By the way, I sell Macs so I know schtuff if you need any help with it.

The smallest i can shrink it is 1in X 1in square which is still too big


#18

Click the share button and export it to an email as an attachment and it’ll give you an option to size it down or something like that. It’ll say options like small, medium, large, etc.

Just email it to yourself and download it again.
