Default I need technical help again...

Been working on scanning those Paradise photos. But when I try to put one in the gallery, it says it needs to be 200kb or less. I don't know how to do that, although I never had a problem with it before. I have tried squishing the picture down till it almost disappears, and it's still too big. ???

Try saving the picture in a different format. It is probably a jpg so you could try saving it as a gif file. That should take up less space. If it's not a jpg, it could be a bmp which are huge, and just saving it to a jpg should be sufficient.

Try using MS Paint, click on Image, go down to Strech/Skew, click on that. There you can tell it what size you want to shrink it to. I go down to 50 or 25% depending on how large the upload can be. Then rename it and save it to My Pictures. Hope this helps.
