Even large photos are resized after posting.

I never argued with the need to save space. My argument was about user interface. If the board software has the intelligence to resize your photo and increase its compression, then why the requirement to limit uploads to 500kb? Upload the 3MB image and the board software should be able to resize it to < 500kb and then delete the original. And if the automation is unable to do this because of a technical problem, then kick back an error message to the user.

Windows OS: "faststone photo resizer" is very good photo resizing program with bulk capability.
Download link

Android OS: "Photo & picture resizer" is one of the best app for android. Your can resize several photos with the blink of an eye.
Link to play store

iOS: "Image size" is one of the best apps.
Link to app store

If anyone wants to suggest other programs, feel free to do so.
Hello Elie,

I downloaded the Android version, but even though I can get the 1024x768 size, the kbs are too large! If I get the correct kbs, the crop is too large?!

Can anyone advise me please?

When you resized the photo, choose the preset Width x Height 768 x 1024 option. It will automatically resized the photo. Most of the time, the photo should be less than 300kbs.
The Resized photo is saved into the PhotoResizer folder, not the original photo folder, unless you choose to Replace the original photo.
You don't need to Crop the photo.

PlantCrazy: another option is to use https://picresize.com/ or similar free photo resizers. I upload the photo from my hard drive and then resize to a max of 500 kb. You then need to download it back to your computer. The filename will start with rsz to denote it has been resized.

I'm really sorry, but I just saw this now.
I'm having problems with the other one so I will uninstall it and download this one.

Thank you very much Jerry.

You don't need to download Picresize. You just use it online. You need to download each photo you resize within a short period of time or it will be deleted and you'll have to do it all over again.

It worked! :D
