HI guys
I want to enter something in the "lines" competition. I see it says to make the image 500 pixels along its' longest point but what should the overall size of the file be?? Before I joined e2, I was asked to make the sizes of images 500pixels/no bigger than 60kb in total. Does this sound right for the competition entries?

As long as they are 500 pixels then your fine I think. (mod of epz to confirm).

I say that because my entry was over 60kb and it uploaded fine.

I have the same doubt.
I wouldn't trust to post a photo over 60Kb because some time ago I did it (not for a comp, though), and the system accepted the photo without warning. But then I noticed that the system automatically compressed my picture under 60kb with orrible results, so I deleted it and reposted a 60Kb version. But in a competition you don't have the possibility to delete and repost!!!
A confirmation from an epz moderator would be appreciated.
(But I think this is the wrong forum for these questions, you'd better to repost it in general discussion or similar...)

Reading through the rules of the comp it says "Pictures should be saved at the indicated size suggested on the upload page."

For some reason I thought it said somewhere they had to be no larger than 50kb

I always size mine to the pre e2 gallery size ie. 500 pixels in the longest measurement and less than 60kb in size.

Hi Tony
Just put one into the "paint" comp for june and made sure it was 500px and just under 60k. 'suppose at least then it won't get edited in a way I wouldn't be happy with. Although if Answersonapostcard edited any I'm sure they'd look a lot better!!
Cheers
