Thanks

If you right click on you pics and then select send to or send picture it will ask you if you want to make the pic small enough to email, hit yes, then email it to yourself. When you receive them email save the attched pic, taking note of where you have saved it. When you come on here hit the browse button, find where you have saved the emailed pic and it should work o.k.
I'm sure there is an easier way but this works for me! :D
