Resize your pictures!


There have been some questions regarding resizing pictures, and how to make them smaller (for email, blogs, photostreams, etc). Pic Resize is a free online picture resizer; it is a great tool for just such a purpose!

How to receive blog updates as email

Some of our members are interested in receiving updates to the blog as emails. From what I understand, it can be accomplished in as little as four steps. There are sites that easily walk you through the process here (it uses IE 7 or Outlook 2007 or a sharing invitation email message), here (it uses Bloglet), and here (it uses Feed My Inbox). Do not panic if these terms are unfamiliar to you; the process seems to be very simple and straightforward.
