Trying to get a photo for you see but having trouble getting it small enough to fit. The rule says it has to be no larger than 19.5 kb for a jpeg file. I have it down to 19.1 and when I try to upload it, the message says it is 18.1 kb over the limit. What am I doing wrong here? You will like this photo if I can figure it out.

If I have to e-mail it to someone else to figure out how to get it out that would be fine. I am obviously tech challenged:)

ZagNative has a thread in the forum support. It gives the steps. If you struggle (I did) PM her.

1. Is it for your avatar or for viewing in a message?

If it's for an avatar PM me and I will give you my email you can send it to me I will compress it correctly and get it back to you

If its for viewing in a message and its online already, google the item, click images, click the one you want, click View Full Image across the top of the browser window and you will get a 'hot link' (old term I think) to the file directly... so http:\\wwww.xx.x.x.x.x..jpg or whatever: Elias!

or you can just find the photo online, right click on it, go to properties, and copy the address (URL) link into the popup on this site when you click the "insert image" icon above your msg.

You don't need to go to properties, just click copy image location after right clicking.

Only deal with that is that some photos don't let you embed them into other pages. So the Google route will show you which ones and the only way to see that is to click that link. Photobucket and sites like that are guilty of this sometimes.
