    In a previous thread, a few sites were suggested for editing and posting pics. However,
    to post a jpg for a beer review is difficult. 150X300 is distorted.

    Most sites try to "constrain" the pixel sizes to create a undistorted pic. Suggestions?

    You likely need the picture first to get to the 300 dimension, then trim/crop to get to the 150. In my case after taking a portrait photo with the iPhone camera, I end up with a picture that can be resized to 225x300 which I then trim to be 150x300 (and I have posted 10s of photos).

    I take pics with an ipod touch. However, after I crop it, I tried to get the exact dimensions and I could not.
    I got close. Perhaps I should start in portrait mode in the ipod- if there is such a mode.
