Is there a sticky with details of how to easily resize pics for the forum? If not how about one?

Or, you can hunt down "Free Photo-editing" software in G'.

It can be done in Win 10, (paint I think), but there must be simpler for the basics out there.

Windows picture viewer has a basic editing function, it's what I used to slightly crop some Robin pics to correct the orientation.

If it's on your phone, take a screenshot of the original photo, then use the screenshot.
