Alan.
The file size you need to achieve is 100Kb.
Non e2 members can upload a file up to 600 x 600 pixels, but no more than 100Kb and ideally as close to 70Kb as possible.
hope that Helps.

Hi Alan

Sorry to hear you've been having a few problems iwth resizing. Here's a few tips.

1. As you're not an e2 member, you need to get your file size down to below 100kB if I remember rightly. Resize your image to 600 x400 pixels (roughly, depending on your aspect ratio).

2. Rather than just saving as a JPEG, use your 'Save for Web' tool. This will allow you so adjust the amount of compression applied to your JPEG. Adjust the quality value until you get the file size you require. The file size relates to the unopened file, not to the open version.

Providing the file size is within the upload limit when closed, it should upload without problems.

Boasting about your masturbation tendencies is not the place for a family forum Doug.

Try to keep on topic.
