    Thanks Fritz

    This may help

    Quote:
    All images must be:

    * JPEG format (.jpg at the end)
    * RGB format (not CMYK)
    * resized to under 100Kb* in file size
    (400Kb* for e2 members)
    * no larger than 600x600 pixels in size
    (1000x1000 pixels for e2 Members)
    * Large versions are automatically made for images larger than 600x600 pixel

    Important: *where possible please aim to compress to as close to 70Kb (200Kb e2) to improve your upload speed and performance. If you are unsure how to optimise your photographs, look at this technique:Resize your Photos for the Web

    Paint shop Pro v8.10 has a menu option whereby you can re-size the image to 600 x 600 pixels and an export option to reduce to 70Kb (or whatever sizes you want) in two easy steps.

    I usually sharpen a little after the reduction and before uploading.

    In Photoshop/Elements you have a 'save for web and devices' option that will compress the image down better than trying to do it with the pixel dimensions and resolution route, if that helps - so change your image size to the correct pixel dimensions in the 'image size' window, then 'save for web and devices' to get the right file size.

    Which is exactly what I said above with PSP, Katy..!! Smile

    Fair enough, Katy, I guess it is! Smile
