Once an image is placed on your page, you can change the size using the image editor on the right side of your page or you can alter the size by dragging the corners of the element.

The button he is referring to is Optimize, on the right side.

The way I do it is to resize photos with a photo editor (such as Photoshop) before uploading to SiteBuilder. Works great. 

Note: NEVER mess with your originals! Make copies, resize the copies, then upload the copies.

if you are using an Iphone I resize them by emailing them to myself and it asks how big I want them to be small medium large or actual sized...

thank you I will try those - and yes generally i use photoshop but I wanted to do it on the site because to me photoshop is tedious and takes to long, but if I have to go back to resize them, I will.

You can get programs that will bulk-resize. Select the ones to resize, chose a destination, click go... More to it than tha but you get the idea. I use such a program (can't remember the name) to convert negatives to positives.

For resizing and other modifications I use Jasc (not Corel) Paint Shop Pro, which is decades old.

Jasc is now part of PaintShop Pro and it is better than ever!
