Many readers have given me great information and I have learned so much. The Where Do You Live on the Web? poll will remain active in the column on your right. Please respond to this one-question poll if you have not already done so.
There is always a need to change the size of an image whether it be for a simple email message or to meet any number of Web requirements. Last week there was a need to make a 125×125 graphic (see left). To make the task easier for me, someone suggested I use a website with a handy resizing tool. I want to pay forward the kind tip and share this site with you. Go to www.resize.it to see all the ways you can edit images online. The free image resizing tool at Resize.it is wonderfully practical and easy to use. You even have the option of giving an image a “sketchy” quality. Be sure to bookmark this website because you don’t want to lose track of this one!

By the way, is a weekly email still “just enough” for you? Let us know by taking our poll. Watch the results as they come in…
