set your size for the max width that you can upload (if it's bigger) which is 1024 pixels. make sure your software is set to preserve aspect ratio. Also make sure you are set for 72 pixels per inch. Any mpore is a waste since screen resolution seldom exceeds that.

Then save it as a .jpg with usually 50% compression will satisfy size and quality needs for the forum.

Gary brought this up at the Xmas gathering and I think we will soon be posting a link to the best Free editing software available and then we can post how to use it.

I'm sure Gary will chime in shortly!!
