Hey Everyone,
I’m new to this site.
Does anyone know how to condense photos?
I have some good pics of my work but can’t upload them due to the 3mb limit.
I want to condense my pics to post here but can’t seem to figure it out.
I have XP if that helps.

Greetings to all and I look forward to sharing and learning from others.

Hey Andrew Welcome to Ljs
I use MGI photostudio. There are other ways like sign up for photo bucket it’s free and many more. I’m not real great at that kind of work. I’m sure others will have better suggestions. You could also do a search here on LJs under Photos etc.

go to garyk in the search window ,
he did a blog about this .

the only way i have been able to get less mb,s ,
is to crop the picks ,
until they enter .
on photobucket ( free ) just pick the size you want ,
s,m, or l .
you do need a starter pic in the opening place 3 mb’s
the rest you can put into the texting ,
like gary says .

I use a Mac but it would seem to me that if you can open the picture in any program that lets you save.. some drawing program, even a word processor then save it as a jpg. it should let you choose the quality level. Lower it.
