Well done Daniel. Thanks again for the videos.

I use a droid also.
I haven't been able to resize my images on my phone but I do crop them. FYI- Some sites have size limitations on the images. (800x800 pixels or so)

Some of the closeups I take can get rather large (3200x3200 pixels). so in that case I use a wifi connection to email the images in groups of 5 or 6. Once the images are in my computer I use "Paint" program to rotate or resize them.

(Note: My phone seems to store emails with images attached for some reason until I send out a regular email without attachments. So I have gotten into the habit of sending myself "Email Prompt1" or 2 or 3 to get my phone to actually send the emails with the attached images. Really odd but it works for me.)
