No, you're not. Yes resizing images is a pain and for a while I just posted the photo to Flickr and them linked them into my listings or logs. The change to the 500kb size limit is a welcomed move. Yes, having the images automatically resized for us would be great. Maybe if we all start sending $30 per year to OCNA HQ we could expect those conveniences. Yes, I know you didn't suggest that. In the meantime, resizing an image is not an insurmountable task. If you are taking pictures specifically for the website, just set your camera to a low size / resolution and you should be able to get decent images but still under 500kbs (on my nikon S9700 it takes about 2 seconds to set to 2mp and i get pictures around 400kbs in size) . Or you can resize an image easily enough in Paint (one of the most basic programs to use - honestly it's about 10 clicks start-to-finish on any Windows OS and I will provide step-by-step instructions if you want), or use one of the many online resizers including one I used once (but now can't find) where you could specify max file size and it would determine what pixel size to use.
Surely resizing an image is easier and quicker than figuring out how to catch pokemons.
