Pilot kid.

You will need to run them through a graphics program, save the downsized photo under a different name then upload.

Not hard to do. MS Paint which comes standard on most computers will do this. I use other programs so I am not totally up on step 1-2-3 with Paint.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I just looked at MS paint... piece of cake.

Open Paint> File> load your picture.
Click on Image, > Stretch and skew

A window pops up, enter % you want to increase or decrease both W and H. >OK. Click Image> attributes. This tells you the edited image size in Pixels. if OK, Save it. takes about 20 seconds

I don't recall the limits for posting. 600Hx800W is a good size. If bigger than that original, click attributes first to see how big it is and by what% it need to be reduced to come in under max size. IE if original is 1200x1600, reduce by 50%=600x800.
