Windows has Paint as a standard app too.

Max looks like 100x100 to me.

I show your image as 120x71 if I copied it correctly.

Welcome, John. I know I don’t speak for others, but I am sure that the Escape owning members of this forum are confident that you will love your 21.
By the way, do I detect a bit of “gloating” in your post?

used, it was built in november 2014. We drove to the Dallas area over the holidays to buy it. insane marathon drive like we haven't done in 30 years, drove 27 hours straight through to get there, my wife spelling me for passenger seat naps, then took 3 days to tow it home. some pics from the trip: https://photos.app.goo.gl/kY5LhPjVhnmlY8Zn2

my airbagged tacoma v6 w/ 6 speed stick hauled it very nicely.

nice trip, we do those marathon trip beginnings when going to Osoyoos via the southern way through tornado alley, drive like the wind until we make it to New Mexico.

If you use windows paint is free and easy.
Right click on the picture and choose edit.
If yours is set up to not use paint as the editor then open paint and open the picture. Select resize and Pixels . Then if the picture is horizontal type in 100 for that measurement and it will scale the other. For example 200X100 would become 100X50 .If vertical type 100 in the vertical and it will do the same. Do not put 100 in both areas as it will make the picture perfectly square and likely look very odd.

Jim, just make sure you drive LIKE the wind and not THROUGH the wind!🌪

Don't forget to request being added to the owners map. Click the "Owners Map" link in the upper main menu bar.

Basically, send me a private message (PM) to be added.
