i dont know the setting on my camera?!!! i am electronic slow! its a nikon D40X......

when i did a search for iphoto or help, it only lets you crop the photo, it doesnt actually let you resize the image.... which doesnt make sense to me!

You can also drag the picture from photobucket onto your desktop. However, it's much easier to just use the IMG tags that are in photobucket.
