Greetings

Yes we can help you, first of all we need to know what size you would like to show your pictures at, we allow a maximum of 1000px wide and as you correctly stated 200kb per photo however not everyone is happy showing pictures at that large a size. It's up to you though

Secondly, what image software do you have to reduce the pictures (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro etc). Once we know that we can try to assist.

Re: Resizing for Gallery

Steve thanks for quick reply: i use Photoshop CS2 and am aware of the resizing it can do its the 200k that concerned me if one dials up 800x600 it still resizes at about 1.37M how low can one reduce file size before nothing is left i would like to just dial in a set of numbers and know it sits ok with rest of gallery pics and not use other space set aside for other members

Re: Resizing for Gallery

OK...

Go to image>image size. In the pop up box look for resolution (it’s next to the bottom) then select 72pixels/inch (pc monitors don't display more than than that so any more is just increasing files size with no benefit )
After doing that type in your required dimensions in the top section. If you have “constrain proportions” ticked then you will only have to do it for one side Once done click O.K. and it will resize your shot and reduce the file size massively.

At this point I would sharpen and adjust the picture to personal preference before you go and save the file. reducing the image will always lose some detail but by applying the sharpening at this stage you can usually recover most of it During the save dialog you can adjust the file size using the slider but a setting usually around 7 or 8 will give you excellent quality and keep your file sizes within the 200Kb limits.

Hopefully that should get you sorted but if not just shout back and we’ll try to give you more details.
