I have noticed that when the rest of you post pictures they are much larger (and alot better quality but that's another chapter). Why is that? When I upload mine, I get a message that prevents anything over 256K ( I think) so I have to reduce them. BTW I am only using Microsoft Picture Manager. Help for the helpless.

I am not sure this matters, but I am linking from my flickr account, and not uploading from my computer. I am not sure you can upload from the computer.... but flickr resizes my images so that they aren't great big huge anyway. I think... I do resize mine before loading them to flickr, but they are all 8X10 or 12X15 sized. Maybe that is what the difference is, but I have never seen my photos come up here any bigger than maybe a 5X7 size.

I loaded this file directly from my computer and it displays the same as it does on my computer (that is when I click on it rather than using the scroll bars).
I did reduce the file size in PS.

I generally up load mine to Photo bucket first and then copy the [img][\img] info across to the thread.
Much like Bob I also resize before sending the images to photobucket and try to keep the width of the image no larger than 800 pixels. That way I find I get a nice sized image that doesn't require scrolling across the screen.
When I convert the files to Jpg in Photoshop (Elements 6) I do have the option to compress the files down and generally aim to keep them about the 300K mark.
Hope this helps.
If you want to edit any of my images to demonstrate points/techniques to either myself or others please feel free to do so.
Still learning with Canon 40D, 28-135mm, 100-400mm L and Elements 6.
Any Advice greatfully received.

I use Smugmug which allows you to upload fullsize images with no compression
Then if you want to post on any forums or websites, there is a share button that will give you the [img][img/] tag and gives you multiple options as to which size you'd like to post it
This really helps as I know I have a fullsize back-up file offsite incase anything happens to my hard drives and different forums ask for different size pictures. So rather than post multiple pictures of the same picture but various sizes, I only have to upload the full size image once and go from there. Smugmug also helps as they put the watermark on it for you. So I dont have to have seperate galleries that I've watermarked in Photochop. I just edit or do what ever I have to do to each image, then upload it and I'm good to go
