My daughter in law found this today, hollered at me, so I got some pictures. Question: how do you reduce a photo down to the 150kb maximum? I have three choices: 1. post it on photobucket and link it, 2. e-mail it to myself and save it again which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, 3. extensive cropping. That's what I did on this one. But I'm thinkin' there is a better way. Canon Rebel 1000D, 18-55mm lens at 27mm(according to the data) with a 2X closeup filter, 1/60 sec at f/4 and flash. It was really dark and cloudy here this afternoon.

Good one.
Think most people link from another photosite so it removes the restriction. However reducing the size to around 800 pixels longest side should do it ( this is roughly what the emailing would do). I suspect there a freeware progs which will do this if you don't have any photo manipulation software to reduce the size.

Do you use Windows? Then try Paint (Start > All Programs > Accessories). Or try IrfanView (external link) (freeware).

I would go the route of Flickr or similar where you link the photo.

Thanks for the suggestions. Even when I use photobucket I still e-mail it to myself first, just so I don't have to upload 3 meg pictures. E-mail will reduce a 3 meg photo down to around 230 or so. I'll try Paint and see what happens.

When you load the image into photobucket, there are a series of links to the right. If you click on the one that is labeled IMG - it will say "Copied"

Now you just paste into add comment box here by right-clicking and selecting paste or by hitting ctrl-v and you don't have to go through all the emailing steps you are doing now.

The reason I e-mail it is to reduce the size. It takes a long time to load a 3meg photo to photobucket. I figgered out how to reduce them to managable sizes on Paint, thanks to Archibald, so now I can just do it there. I can keep the original, and save a reduced copy right next to it.
