What is the best size to resize my 8-1/2x11 pages too?

For my 12x12 pages I normally just open up microsoft office picture manager and resize to 500x500 and then it usually fits... but since the 8.5x11 isn't square not sure what to change it to LOL

any help would be great... =)
Thanks,
Kim

I don't know which program you use, but in PSP you have a resize option and you can choose the size of your LO. If it is not square, you have to be careful that the largest dimension is below 500 pixels, otherwise I think it won't upload properly. Hope this helps!

I usually knock mine down so that the longest length is 525 or so. It just depends on the layout and how big the original file is. I use Photoshop 7 and I use the "Save for web" option, so I can see how big the file is and adjust it accordingly.
Hope that helps! :)

Thanks...
I am using elements 2.0 so I'll try it from there!

I know these type of layouts won't be duplicated so I thought I would work in a different size than the 12x12 aka 8x8 size.... but had a little bit of a rough time... so we'll see

Thanks
