Go to the paint program and open the pic then resize it to 500 pixels and save it. That should load up.
The paint program can be found by searching in the Start menu, bottom left of the screen.

Rcs1,

Take the picture and email it to yourself. When you email it, you will be asked about the size (small, medium or actual). Select one under 175 and email it to yourself. When you open the email and the picture downloads, hold your finger on it and it will let you save the image to your camera roll. You can post it from there because it will meet this sites requirement.

Cell phone picture offers options for emailing picture size...at least mine does. You have an old Cole. You might do better looking on eBay. I do not think the current company stocks anything for those older models but eBay might be your best bet. You might try a tractor implement reseller who deals in older Implements. Take a picture of the planter from the side and the inside with the seed plate.

There is a tractor farm emplament bone yard just east of Grant, Mi but I don't recall the name.  They have several acres of old equipment from dozers to planters.

[url]https://roetersfarmequipment.com/[url]   this is the junkyard I mentioned in this thread.  They have heaps of old stuff, but know that they are real proud of their junk.
