I have reduced and reduced and I still can't get it small enough. Any ideas? The smallest I can get it is 15K. I am using PS7. Thanks!

Your image still had the EXIF info. That's why it was so big.

Try this one. 60 x 54 and 3K

Thanks Puck - but sadly here is the message I get when I try to upload the picture you made "Sorry, the file size is bigger than the maximum allowed (6K)."


I really do appreciate you trying, it just must be me - thanks again! Karrel

keep going to edit the photo, then resize. I just kept going smaller in size until it got to 3 K.

I use ACDsee to store photos so maybe that is why I can go so small, not sure. You could try using that programme.

Irfanview is an excellent freeware image viewer from www.irfanview.com. It has a fully-featured resize/resample facility.After you've resized, "File... | Save As... | jpg..." offers you a continuously variable degree of jpeg compression.

I use Paint Shop Pro 7.04 myself, and the equivalent facility in that actually has a preview window.You can inspect the image at various degrees of jpeg compression & decide if the quality is adequate for its purpose, has a small enough file size, etc. I'd have thought PS7 would have copied that useful feature by now, and if it hasn't all the folk who've paid lots of money for Photoshop should complain to Adobe until they do.

Save as a gif this is what I had to do. At the small resolution it will not look too bad...

Unfortunately this board converts imbedded images to BMP

So you can pick it up here

Finally - I had to save it as a .gif but it finally saved. The other pixs were saying the were small enough, but they just wouldn't up load, neither would this last one, until I made it a .gif. Holy cow - thanks you guys for all the help - you are all great!!
