Need help with uploading!

Hey,

I have pictures that say they are to big in the sense that the size of them is ok, except the arent the right kilobytes? What does that mean? And, well, how do I change that so I can post pics
Help Please!

kb are the amount of info needed to reconstruct the image. you need to lower the quality or the size (either one works). or you could use a different host.

I post the images onto 3rd party photo sites like photobucket or flickr..
they handle the resizing for you. And then you link those images on forums with the [img] tag or use the picture icon in the edit bar

Handy link that ShrinkPictures place. I have photoshop here to do my stuff with but that's neat.

There is a free program called The Gimp with which you can manipulate your pictures. Never used it personally but heard lots of good things about it.
