You need to resize the picture. The size is limited. I am getting ready to leave for church but if you don't find someone to resize it for you I would do it later for you. I will be out most of the day doing the family thing but when I get home I'll check back to see if you got it posted.
In order to resize a picture, you need a photo editing program, or you can use Windows paintbrush ( but its not that good). Go into image (usually on the top of the program) on the program, then click on resize image. A good size for the internet is 320x240 pixels, and the memory used around 200-250 kb. If you have problems doing this, send me a couple and I will resize them for you and send them back, I have a real good editing program and takes no time at all when I get around to it.
A better way to get the size of the photo file down without ending up with a pic so small you can't see detail is to get Photoshop or another good quality photo editing program. With Photoshop, you simply open your large photo file, do whatever editing you might need, click "save as," type in another name (so you don't lose the high resolution original) and then when it asks for the image quality, choose 5 or 6. Your large photo file will then be saved at the same screen size but a smaller file size. If it is still too large, you can go through the process again, but usually not a third time.
There is a loss of quality, but it is normally undetectable. What Photoshop does is delete some of the pixels and blend the missing ones into the ones that surround it. This means that a large area that is one solid color can be saved without noting what color each pixel is. They're all the same color, so it doesn't matter. Where some quality might be lost is in shadowed or highlighted areas.
By the way, Leon, I like the new avatar. reminds me of a recent conversation...
Chas, Your emblem is located farther back then mine. I looked at mine and it is right to the edge of the front of the hood and there looks like a factory punched hole underneath with a cable mechinism attached to the emblem of a walking cougar. Also, there are two small slots on the top of the hood where the base of the emblem slides in perfectly with catch like hooks. Someone must have been damn good to put that emblem on! I still think mine is factory.
As a professional graphic designer I highly recommend Photoshop, however the price is a bit steep for the 'average user.' An excellent alternative is Adobe Photoshop Elements. It's much less expensive and has some real useful features.
Another alternative is Paintshop Pro which is also priced much lower than Photoshop but is very comparable.
