No matter what I do (and I've tried a few times in the last year or so), the site will not let me upload a picture from my computer. I resized the picture I chose to 50 pixels X 44 pixels and it's 16 Kb on the dot, but when I try to upload it, it says it's reading that it's 960px X 450px or something like that. Does editing the picture in Paint make a difference? I literally have no Photoshop skills.

Even though I have Photoshop at work I always use Irfan View when I want to change image size. The program loads in an instant where as Photoshop is slow as a turtle.

Anyway. Download Irfan View and install it on your PC. Open your image in it. Press Ctrl+R to adjust size. Press Ctrl+S to save. Done.

^^^^Yes!

Been using Irfanview for years, and it's hands-down the best at what it does. It's perfect for resizing, cropping and other minor touch ups.
