How to (re)size photo for upload?
Please forgive if I've posted in the wrong spot. I've not ever posted in a forum before. On that note, I'm technologically challenged and am learning something every day with my SG4. With this post, I hope to learn even more!
My question is about the photo sizes. I post regularly to my business page on Facebook directly from my phone and the photos always appear too big in the feed. Scenario #1 is when a photo is sent to me via text and I save it to my Gallery, and then upload it to Facebook. That image is too big cutting off the tops and sides. I would like the image to be 403x403.* Is there an app that I can use to resize the photo before posting it to Facebook? If so, please give me some suggestions as to which one as the one Iíve tried is only for Instagram and that is not suitable for this particular scenario.
Scenario #2 is when I upload a photo taken from my phone to Facebook. Do I need to adjust the size in the camera settings to make the photo 403x403? OR is there an app for this purpose?
I hope there is an app for this so I donít have to adjust the settings of my phone camera. The 13M is stunning. I donít mind resizing the daily photos I upload to Facebook as long as I can maintain the high resolution detail of the photos overall.
Another question is regarding MMS group messages. When I reply to the ďgroup conversationĒ my message never goes through. If I choose the ďindividual messageĒ tab I get texts from people in the group asking me who I am. To be blunt, Iím not sure if Iím responding to the message correctly in the first place, but if I am, then why isnít it going through?
If there are any details missing from my question, please let me know. I hope itís okay that I asked several questions in one post. If I need guidance on my posting etiquette, please donít hesitate to fill me in.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my questions.
*I've found a free program to resize the occasional photos from my laptop and 403x403 is the perfect fit!

Re: How to (re)size photo for upload?
Thank you very much for your response! I've downloaded the Photo Editor App while keeping the PicSayPro in mind for later. This is very helpful, especially after I realized I had the wrong size (403x403 is a thumbnail, not for a photo that you see in the newsfeed). So, for my purposes, while there is some degradation in the quality, it will work (as long as I have the correct size ratios!) For other photos with no caption, the upload size has never mattered and my photographs always look great (and the SG4 has not disappointed)!
The page I have for the cat that started out as a joke for my God Daughter but it's developed a little following, lol! Thanks again - your help steered me in the correct direction.
