    I have an iMac and I usually export photos from iPhoto to Photoshop. Then, in Photoshop I "save them for the web" and put the pics on my Desktop / in a folder and upload them from there. It's kind of a pain.

    What methods do you use to get your pics onto the web? I can't imagine everyone has Photoshop so there must be different / possibly better ways...

    I transfer them from my camera to the my photos folder on my computer, then use resize2mail.com to get them the right size.

    Connect camera to computer.
    Drag image files into a local folder.
    Resize if necessary, otherwise...
    Upload via tinypic or imageshack.

    The end.

    So when I get some kind of error saying that the pic is too big, that means that it's borders are to big? I always thought that I needed to reduce the pic by pixels to transfer it to the interwebz.

    In other words, I took a pic of a flowering plant which has a lot of definition. If I want to put it on the web, I don't need to make the pics "size" (pixels?) smaller, I just need to reduce its border size if it's too big?

    Some uploading sites have a limit, others do not. It generally tells you if it is a size or dimension issue when you get the error.

    Camera to Thumbs Plus where they are cropped and resized and touched up if necessary -- then uploaded to Photobucket.

    Camera to Iphoto, drag from Iphoto to temp folder on desktop, bulk upload to photobucket...

    pretty good workflow using this method.
