    No Luck in posting photos!

    I have reduced the size of my photos to far less than the 1000 x 1000 size indicated and still cannot get them to load...

    Must be doing something way wrong here...

    Redfish,

    It's not the total height and width (well it is indirectly) but the total bites of your picture... Our site only allows LESS then 100 KB total...

    Most newer computers have 'resizing' programs in their systems.... Most of those programs are reached by 'right clicking' your mouse on your picture, clicking on 'resize picture' to 'small - 640 x 480'

    Or, just resize you picture to 640 x 480 and see if it will post...



    BTW - Your question will be going to the 'Test Area - Help' category soon

    BTW 2 - I'm an 'old dog' as well ....

    Hope this helps,

    Tried that ...No Luck!

    I am using HP Photo Editor...

    Selected the 640 x 480 size...

    It showed the photo as significantly reduced in size...

    Attempted to upload it...

    Nope... it was still 3 times as large as is permitted...

    I give up?

    Are you saving it as a JPEG? Some photo editors will default to GIF or BMP format, which usually results in larger file sizes. JPG format uses several different levels of file compression which can result in a much smaller overall file size. I am not familiar with HP Photo Editor, but using the "Save File As..." command from the menu will usually allow you to change the file format.

    Also, the resolution is a large contributor to file size--72 dpi is sufficient for web images to be viewed on a computer screen, while many cameras and scanners will use up to 300 dpi and more. Reduce the resolution of your photo to 72 dpi when you resize it if this is the case.

    Finally, color density effects image size. The amount of memory space used by an uncompressed image is determined by the number of pixels in the image times the color depth to which each pixel is specified. "True color" requires 24-bit color depth, but you may be able to specify 16-bit color and reduce file size without much loss in appearance.

    If all else fails, you may email me the image and I will reduce and post it for you.
