I don't know if this has been mentioned, but it's annoying when you're posting a pic and you get the message that the pic is too wide. Can pics just be resized instead?

You could try Photoshop, Windows Paint, Gimp or something like this which is neat and handy:

Even easier, if you're using Firefox, get the ImageShack plugin. You can upload online images to ImageShack with a right click menu option or use the toolbar to upload local images and resize them to the acceptable 800px width. Spits out the appropriate BBCode for you as well.

I hate that everytime I resize a picture and post it as my profile pic, it looks demented...

I've had good luck with tinypic.com for avatars and general image resizing.
