Well I owe you an apology as well. Obvviously I meant to send that message to you privately, and goofed up.
Using Irfanview, open the picture file, Select Image /Resample- Resize
Set your size to 280 X 360 pixels or so and 72 dpi.
When I did that to your photo it came out at 56KB when saved.
Or you can use:
Microsoft Office Picture Manager.
If so there are two ways to reduce your picture size. Under the Picture Tab select:
Click on Predefined Width and Height and select Email Large
Click on Percentage of original Width and Height and select a percentage the set the picture size to 280 X 360 pixels or so. (that is approximately 4" X 5" on a monitor)

Sorry about the photo ... I had reduced it using Irfanview but I guess I assumed it reduced the kb's & pix's.
I've tried every possible thing with Irfanview to resize to 50kb or less using 72dpi it but it still makes it very large kb's (unless I'm doing something wrong in Irfanview!)
I'll refrain from sending photo's until I know what & how to fix them and/or afford software to resize them for this forum
