Hi Bill,

There are 2 ways to post pictures here:
- post the picture physically on this forum
- post it on some other site and put a link to it in your message.

If you use the second option you are restricted by whatever conditions are specified on the particular site on which you post the pictures. On the plus side you can post more than one picture in a given message.

If you use the first option, the maximum size is ~ 240k and you can only post one picture per message. What I usually do is I first resize the picture to 800x600 (640x480 is another option) and then when I save it as JPEG I select the maximum quality that fits in the given size limit. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0, and for each quality that I select (max is 12) I can see in the dialog box the size of the file before I actually save it. So I start with the max quality and reduce it until the size of the resulting file is smaller than the limit accepted here.

Good luck,

I use the second way myself. Works great.
