G'day Gob & Denny ,
open the folder your pic is in , right click on the one you want , left click edit , then in the toolbar at the top , left click image then strech/skew , a small window will open , in the strech part , change the percentage numbers down from 100% to about 50% , leave the skew part alone you don't need that , thensave it to a folder you use to upload from , now you need to open that folder and put the curser over this pic , read what the kb size is at the bottom of the small title window is , this needs to be as close to 50 kb but no more than 50 kb as you can get ,, you may need to repeat all this a few times to get it right , remember , as close as but no more than 50 kb ,, then once you get it to this size , you will be able to upload it , all the best !!

Neil ..

I also concur with Neil & Marge as another method of reducing the size of the image file.

this only makes the picture smaller - if you want it smaller but also with the main content CROP first to choose the best (important) part of the picture, then use this process if you still want/need to.

A good free program is IVIEW - does everything pretty easy and even BATCHES so that you can process lots in one go!!

Enjoy

Hi GOB & denny, you will need an image editing program such as Adobe Photoshop,Microsoft Image Editor, Corel Draw, Paintshop Pro ect, which allows you to re-size your photo by pixels. Cheers.

Another is a freebie called Irfanview. A Google search will find a download site. Works well.

Steve I thought you were using "Easy Thumbnails" I got the link of EO from a previous post.
Saves a huge amount of mucking around, freeware from...

Best program I have come across for this sort of thing.

I'm sure all the different methods work. I just downloaded the image resizer from the link Blue provided above. Works a dream. Even I worked it out in a few seconds.

Thanks TerraFirmaa. The Canopy is from Carryboy. They were first to market. By far the best IMO, but also the most expensive. Got 11KM per litre until we started loading it up. With canopy, extra battery, drawer unit, 25lt water, fridge, recovery gear etc always in it, we now get 10.6KM per litre, which is still pretty good.

goodevenig all

thanks for all the replies i currently use thumbnail but it only reduces the picture by the looks not the pixel rate as the photos i am trying to upload have decreased in size ie under 50k but will still not load so the only thing must be pixel size so i will try a different program .with thumbs i reduced quality to under 50%but still will not go

stay tuned u may find my computor jammed into itself soon
