Howdy,

Hope I am not wearing out my welcome this morning.

I frequent a web site that allows you to up- load pictures when you post. The size limit is 45 kilobytes.

When I go to my pictures and click on a picture that I want to upload ,I right click, and then choose re-size. The smallest size I have to chose from tells me that it will fit a 640x480 screen.

When I try to upload it to the web site it won't load, it tells me that my picture is 1726.29 kilobytes. :thumbsup:

Any ideas ???

Thanks,

Dennis :flowers:

Tiny Pic allows 250 KBs size--

http://tinypic.com/

Try opening the image in Windows Paint.
Then "Save As" the same format (.jpg or whatever) & rename it so you still have a copy of the original.

The new file should be lots smaller in file size.

Or you could use Irfanview.

EDIT--

You could use Tiny Pic & post a link to the image.
I use a lot of 1024x768 screen shots & Paint usually gets them saved below 250 KBs.

HOWDY medab 1,

I tried tiny pictures yesterday. I was able to post the link, the picture appeared but it was huge. I did not see any place that gave me a opportunity to re size them ??? on tinypictures before posting the link.


Thanks,
Dennis :thumbsup:

I see.
You need a smaller width & height.
See a picture--

Or you can make it any other size you like with IrfanView.

Imageshack.us is a free image hosting site and it will automatically resize your picture when you upload it! You're stuck with the pre-set sizes it offers, but it's much faster than having to manually resize your images.

I would like to chime in. This was meant for avatars but it will work on any picture.
