If I am on my Windows partition I use the power toys. Right click on image > resize > choose size > done.

If you transfer the picture to your computer, I recommend GIMP for a powerful free open source photo editor.

I think the maximum you can post in the forums without scroll bars or external hosting is 640x480.

I already try to post a screenshot from my s3 and it was refused. Very boring to get help in this case or do a correct job of beta tester

Ok... do you know a free application that can do the job in my device (android 4.0.4) ?

Size limits are there for a reason, so pictures are not wider than the page layout. Phones are quickly attaining screen resolutions equal to and higher than computer screens. Please resize your screen shot before posting.

I just use Irfanview to resize the pics if I need to. Takes about 3 seconds. Gimp is too powerful. Takes a minute to open the software. It's like a free Adobe Photoshop.

Sorry, I have no suggestions. I always edit my pictures on my laptop before posting.

From your device can you upload to one of the free picture hosting services? Some/most/all of them allow you to resize on upload. Then they give you the URL to you image that you can put into your post.

That method also save disk space usage on the Waze servers ;)
