I don't know what photo editing software you have, but when you resize you are better off to start by compressing first. The resolution doesn't take such a hit. You can then resize to 99.8kb. Good luck.
Best, Capt. Chris

Thx, Capt.

I run Vista and use Irfanview to view and resize photos - but this is not working well at all here. By the time I get down to 100KB the resolution is shot all to ... you know.


If some running Vista can recommend some software for this purpose, I would really appreciate it.

Thx, Bill

I use Irfanview also, but with XP
I go into image, resize and resample and pick one of the two smaller sizes, but try to keep the quality up and then save with good quality
Try that

Bill I am not to good at this but I use Vista as that was what came on the computer. I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager. I compress first then re size to small web page size. My pictures are still not big enough but I just recently learned how to get one on there at all so am still trying different things.

Thanks Guys, I finally got it figured out and Irfanview is up and running like a charm... The problem was there were some extra blocks checked in the save menu making my pics go tango uniform when I resized them. I have no idea what those features are for, but unchecking them fixed the problem and my life is good again (don't ask how many hours I spent trying to figure it out though!!)

Are the photo posting instructions still current? I'd like to try and post some pics, but I don't see a "File Manager" button, tab or box below the posting box. If there are new or updated instructions, please direct me to where they are posted. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

You have to hit the switch to full screen reply link. Then you should see the file manager in blue.
