Instructions
Absolutely anything you enter on the page can be resized with a few simple mouse clicks.

RESIZING:
1) Double-click the picture, sound, or video on the page. A red box appears around it.
2) Roll your mouse over any of the red handles in the corners. The mouse turns into a plus (+).
3) Hold the left mouse button down and drag on the diagonal towards the center of the item. The picture will get smaller or bigger, depending on the direction you drag.

Make sure the very point of the mouse is over the red handle. When the mouse turns into a plus, thatís the computer telling you that you can resize the item.

*TIP* It is always easier to grab the handles when you are zoomed in very close. Use your magnifying glass icon to zoom in.
