Testing pic upload only!

You should be able to post 640x480 ".jpg" pics, the preferred size on our site.

You usually do this by first cropping the pic to 640 pixels (on the largest dimension of the pic). Then do a "save as". In the "save as" operation, you get a shot to rename the pic (I add an "a" at the end of the file name) so you don't alter the original pic's resolution, then you choose a "quality" setting (lower quality, less file size). I usually save at a medium quality (4 on a 1 to 10 scale).

Experiment with the "quality" setting until you learn the setting that gets the pics to 100MB or less.

My program wouldn't allow a quality adjustment that I seen but I'll look again. It renamed by pixel size automatically which is why the first attempt failed . I did find a file size finally and the pixel size was only way I found to lower that
