    You could screenshot it or use Windows Snipping Tool.

    How big is too big?

    This one is 3840 x 2160
    I couldn't just copy and paste - it took several seconds to upload - no notifications about anything.

    See if it works -

    It has a tow hitch for trailer. :)

    What do you think of Noseall's block work?
    I shall not use him again - he kept going golfing and skiing before it was finished.

    Flickr is quite good for this as if you upload a photo, not only do you get a link, but you get half a dozen different sizes. The other tool worth downloading (if you are stuck with PC paint) is https://www.gimp.org

    Is there a way to shrink multiple photos that are in a windows file on a laptop?

    Rather than doing them 1 by 1?

    yes - gimp has a batch function.

    When you say file, do you mean folder?
