Hi Mike,

To resize a photo I normally right click on the photo then scroll down to open with then select paint, when paint opens in the top left corner select resize then change the 100%to say 25% then rename & save your file to a new folder or folder of your choice you should then be able to post the pictures.

Works for me.

Regards Mark

Can you remind me, is it bicarb that you use in the solution?
I did the interior using a folded coathanger as the cathode. Managed to remove rust with no risk of damage to new chrome and paint,
