@snowhitie and @560Heliport - if you have a Windows laptop it should have MS Paint installed and that's a very simple option for re-sizing:
And, in true Blue Peter fashion, here's one I prepared earlier (800 x 408 pixels)!

Well, I am loving all the diversity in this thread! We're going from photo resizing and collecting car polybags to transgender announcements and people falling onto concrete! It's so great we have such an all-encompassing community on here, although we can do with a few less accidents involving concrete!
For the above: I now need a Ferrari polybag. I use Image Shrink Lite to reduce my photos (recommended by someone on here I think), and I can only imagine how hard it is to announce to the world that you are transgender or that you have a transgender child. I am a Rainbow ally in my place of work, and one of my close colleagues is transgender, so I know a tiny bit about the kind of situation that can place a person in. A heartfelt congratulations and good luck in your future @Aanchir and to your child @MAGNINOMINISUMBRA
To move on to more run-of-the-mill statuses (I'm not very interesting, sorry). I've finally got one of the sets that I've wanted for about 2 years after failing to get it while it was in stock at Lego.com! It's #31045 : Ocean Explorer! Saw it in stock on a European bricklink seller recently and after working out P+P it came to slightly less than the original retail price so I jumped on it (this being my first purchase from a Euro vendor). It came last week and it's perfect! Built it that evening and my youngest loved playing with it the following morning. I have since lost a part. But no matter, it shall be replaced. I'll stick up a bunch of photos when I have a minute at home (so busy right now it seems - my lunch break at work is my only free time!).
Finally, to everyone: please be careful out there if there are any hard surfaces, electrified apparatus, fires or other potential sources of injury!
@MAGNINOMINISUMBRA - I had a random accident two years ago which involved me running into a concrete pavement, and getting a fractured femur, which was rather annoying at 40!
I was on crutches for 12 weeks after surgery, and now have a rather substantial bolt holding it all together. I'll always regret that moment, but I'm forever grateful to the NHS. It may take time, but I hope you make a full recovery - and in the interim LEGO is a great way to keep yourself occupied :-)

Got promoted at work today, which means more money, which means more LEGO!
@bookmum love the Fabuheadz! You should do a whole series
I'm a bit miffed that the brickheadz are now all seeming to be in double packs. More expensive so I can't justify 'treating myself'.
Just come back from a preview afternoon down in the new Discovery Centre Birmingham. It's looking very good down there.
Watched the 4d movie, had a good look around the miniland but didn't have time to sit and build anything.
Can't wait to take my nephews and actually sit and build stuff.
