Thanks Willie

You have to host them at smugmug or photobucket type place or reduce there overall size.

Email them to me and I will post them for you or reduce them so you post them.

There are two sizes to be concerned with.
First  the image size and then the file size.
I think the program is set up to handle 4 images per post
with a maximum file size of 500 KB.
When you click on Additional options to post the fotos
there is a group of instructions below the Attach
I had to resize 8 images the other day because the file size was
excessive.
Good luck with your fotos.

Downloading is when you pull a picture from the Internet to your computer. The only criteria is a fast connection.

If you mean upload from your computer to the Internet, then small is good. Most websites, like this one, don't need huge pictures because it impacts their bandwidth and storage capacity. Small pictures display just fine.

Digital cameras produce huge pictures that are great for printing, not so great for the Internet. Pictures don't need to be over 400K. 40K is better.

To shrink the image, open the image in Microsoft Paint, select Image, Stretch/Skew, put in 25% for Horizontal and Vertical and hit Ok. Save the file under a different name to preserve the original. Use Windows Explorer to check the file size.

If you have a lot of images you can download a photo managing software like Graphic Workshop and do a batch at a time.

Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.
