Agree resolution is key, but if your
photo has less variation you lose less at same resolution.
eg. both are 800 x 600 one 92.3 kb and
one 3 kb - same resolution.
p.s. couldn't resist. This list
has over 500 members and less than 5% post on a regular basis, wouldn't like to
see someone stop posting because one of the other 475 some odd complain about
the file size.

Thanks Griff. I use an old photo program that I
got when I first started using the computer ten or fifteen years ago called
PhotoImpact by Ulead. I bought a newer version but didn't like it as well so
went back to the old version. My camera takes a 960 x 1280 pixel picture. I
change the dimensions to 50% then set the resolution to 72 dpi. I think the
resolution is the key to keeping the file size small.

it. How did you get that nice on-screen picture size, yet
keep the file size down as you did? -- Griff

Here is a nice shot of an unknown that is really putting
on quite a show for me this year. This was the first round of blooms that
was ruined in the rain last week. It has just as many open again. This is
only it's third season.
