Beautiful rifles. Just need to change the images to a reasonable size. When they are this big, it makes it almost impossible to view them.

Hi Vergeltung

Here's an incredibly easy, quick, and cheap way to re-size your photos (they are so big I didn't even bother looking, to be honest, until I saved one and then resized it)

You'll be using software that is often completely overlooked on any Windows based PC- "Paint". And it's already installed on your PC

Go to the photo you want.

Right click on the icon

Select "open with....Paint"

Once the photo is opened in paint:

You'll see a list of headers across the top of the window. One will be "Image". Click it

Select "Resize/Skew". On older WIN installs it may be "Stretch/Skew"

You will see an option window open

Change the X and Y feilds of your image. This will change the percentage of the photo size for the X and Y directions. You'll want to change them both equally for 99.9999% of anything you do.

Save the resized photo with a new name

I reduced one of your photos to 45%, with this result:




Beautiful Mausers

Hope this helps,

Chris

EDIT: and just in case anyone is wondering, that is NOT the kitchen me and my familiy use! lol, it's an unused basement apartment we used to rent out. we don't live in chaos and squalor!

EDIT2: ok, pix resized. thanks for your patience all.

Until you pointed it out, all I saw was guns and ammo.
