Chuck, (and all)
You should not take the posting of my message as necessarily a comment on an immediately preceding message. First of all I may not have seen that preceding message yet, and I may well be reacting to a message from the previous day. Most often I also contact someone privately to make sure they understand the file size issue.
Chuck, I appreciate your demonstration that the file size can be as small as you made them and still present a good on-screen picture.
We get new members all the time and occasionally reminders are a necessity.

Thanks for the reminders John. But as it follows my posting of two
pictures together I wish to point out, that even though these two
photos were large on screen, they fit well, and the file size was
small. The one was 18.3K and the other was 17.2K, both way, way under
your size criteria. Together they were still under your lower limit of
40K for one photo.
With newer programs size reduction can even be done more.
For example, this photo is 7.3K

I guess it is time again to remind everyone that large photo file
sizes are not appropriate on the list.
My process is to use a program like Photoshop or Picture It to first
set the picture to 72 dpi, then I resample the image to approximately
4 X 5 inches and when !
I save it, set the jpg compression to get down
to the file size I want. Setting the dpi and the picture size lets me
control the display size.
50KB or smaller is the recommended size and lots of folks get them
under 40KB. If you want to send multiple pictures in the same
message, please limit y
our total message size to 200KB.
I thought my previous messages made this pretty clear.
