Hello,

For those of you using Windows XP there are several handy free downloads offered by Microsoft. Two I use are the Image Resizer and the Magnifier. They can both be found on the list here...

Thanks for the tip Stu. That reimaging software is amazing. It reduced a 4.77 meg image to 47k instantly. John

Generally you should make an image no larger than 600 or 700 pixels in any dimension and save it as a JPEG at medium quality. This should get you can image in the range of 50kb or less.

We have some examples and tips in these two threads:

Here's another program/site I've been using for a few years now.  Among other things, it crops and resizes, changes brightness, etc., and will ONLY save as either a .png or .jpg, your choide.  Picmonkey should do most things anyone here needs.
