    This is the picture that I would like to use.

    Use MS Paint to resize the image. It's too big.

    Figures. I knew that would be coming.

    How do I resize the image in MS Paint?

    Any image editing app will do that trick! I use GIMP. It's free and clear of crap. You just install it. load the image. Select "resize" in the menu and use percentage. Make sure to use the option that locks the ratio or your pic will get real tall. Just shrink it down by 75%.

    Why thank you very much! Glad you think that.

    And yes, you are correct about that one. Unfortunately, I am no longer a fan of Whose Line Is It Anyway anymore because I moved on to other shows, but still have my entire Whose Line music collection on my Dropbox account that I like to listen to every here and there though.

    How do I select "resize" in the menu? Because I do not see it.

    there's probably some trials and errors to get it done. keep trying.

    usually it's called SCALE and should be in a dropper menu along the top. You can select a size with pixels or percents. I'd use percents.

    One thing that might help is just saving your image as a jpg. That and resizing should get it there.


    I've been watching the American Whose Line but have taken a break. It's a little samey but fun. Sure wish the cast changed more than just a single person or 2 now and then. The UK was so much better with that. LOVE seeing some of those big actors get school by the regulars though.
