How can someone upload a picture and I have to use the (across) scroll the see all the picture? Would someone explain to 1024 long side, when I do that from the export in lightroom my pictures are way more than the allowed 150k and will not allow me to upload.
Thanks
Don

The other way to post images is to embed them in your post.

1024 limitation is so that is viewable on the majority of monitors. The ones you that you need to scroll are probably in violation of the forum's rules. If a mod sees it, they will convert the photo to a link.

More info here (found under the FAQ section):

You need to adjust your JPEG compression (quality) before you save the image, Don. I don't use Lightroom, so can't give you details, but in general a JPEG file saved at highest quality is much more than the 150K limit, as you've found. But reducing the quality will usually get a 1024 pixel wide image down below the limit without any loss of quality when viewed on a screen. Bear in mind that the screens we use are usually 100 pixels/inch or less.

Here's a 1024 X 768 image that's 146K:

WOW, that is a sharp as a tack picture, I see what you are saying, I think, I opened up the over sized jpeg in Photoshop Elements and figured out how to make it as close as possible to the 150k by reducing quality.

Thanks

LR export has an option 'Limit file size to...' Set that to 150kB and you should be OK

If Elements follows Photoshop protocols, then Save for Web will strip out EXIF info. If you want it included, then it's Save As, then click on JPEG, and give it a new title if necessary.

Always...did I say Always, "save as" with a different name.
I just put a "w" after the number. Identifies it as a web sized photo and it will prevent you from writing over an original file by mistake.

Since the OP asked about when using Lightroom to Export, this is the relevant bit of info from the LR Export dialog.

You can set your pixel max dimensions (1024) then set the 150KB limit and LR will adjust the compression/quality accordingly -- no need to go to Elements.

Thanks to KoalaCowboy, see here https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1360075
I was able to get it to 150k in LR. I later found out why I have always used LR to resize my pictures but all of a sudden I couldnt, see here. https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1359709

Thanks to all of you for your help, I'd be lost without it.
