Garage Storage, again. (1 Viewer)

Hi,
I have a Dethleffs Trend, with quite a low garage, but nearly full width, with just the one door. Getting inside and dragging gear out was a pain.
So built a trolley, which is all aluminium for strength and weight. The trolley runs on fixed largeish wheels, which are set on wood with an aluminium angle screwed to the wood as a guide. At the far end next to the gas store are 2 bump stops, and at the front a chrome door latch.
All barring the plate was from B and Q Having set the wood and screwed down, gave me the size of aluminium plate to order off the Internet, width and length, and was about 3/4 mm thick. But depends on what weight your putting on I guess, thicker if it's for bikes and spare wheels etc.
On the trolley sits 4 plastic boxes courtesy of 'The Range'.
Total cost was less than £100, aluminium plate was about £55 and the castors about £6 each, plus rivets and angle etc.
The trolley rides high enough to store flat tables and the solar underneath and above enough space for more tables and the awning mat etc.
So lots of fitted gear, easy access and no bad back.
Unable to post the 4 pictures as getting less than 6MB. I know, the joy of living in the middle of Norfolk.

I have them, but won't load up. If someone could enlighten me how to reduce the pixel size on 'photo' in an apple MacBook Pro.( Incidentally, the worst £2000 ever spent.)
I could have another go,
But only have a day, oft to Malta for 4 weeks on Saturday, 17th Nov.

A picture would help, as I had 3 goes before I got the right size ali angle and the wood size to run on. But was able to reutilise in other ways so no waste.
I imagine if you have a tall garage, then sturdier castors and rail should take easy up to 100KG.

Just open your photo in the the Mac photo app then "file" "export" and pick a smaller size/quality and the just export it to your desktop or wherever you want it,

Small isn't it(y)

Then "upload file" and just select it form your desktop or wherever,

Love my Macbook Pro, I’ll take yours off your hands if you want?
Anyway, you could open the images in Preview, you can then resize them to a more appropriate size using the tools menu

Thanks for words of advice. When I go to export shows GIFm which I tap into and then nothing.
Re ; Preview, no such wording in 'Photos'
Like I said, Mac and me mortal enemies.

Preview is a different Mac app to Photos. It is a general purpose viewer for pdf and image files but also has basic editing facilities, including resizing and pixel reduction. Photos is a picture storage device that creates a database of all your images from which you can edit and export. It also has powerful organising facilities and image identification e.g. facial recognition.
Another Mac fan here. You have to spend time to get to know what they can do. Have a look on Mac forums for tips and ideas.

Thanks Philip,
But computers are and the jargon is impossible. A bit like trying to tell folks the difference between scrambled eggs and omelettes, both have the same ingredients the result entirely different

Your photo should be here if not drag it from wherever it is and drop in on the Photo icon marked,

Then "file" "export" "export 1 photo"

Then just pick a size and quality, low and small gave the titchy tiny one I put up earlier so don't use that, click "export" and then just select desktop when it asks you where to put it.

Good luck.

Two finger trackpad click on the file on your desktop and then go to get info to see it's size.
