I Want to Post a Picture

I finally have my scanner figured out but I can not get my picture smaller than around 800,000bytes.
I need some help big time.(I hate these danm computers!)
I seem to be missing the paint program on windows does this make a difference?
I scan using canocraft cs-p copy and I am also using iPhoto Express 1.1.
Please give me some insight of this, thanks

Re: I Want to Post a Picture

What filetype are you saving it as? Make sure you save it as a jpeg (.jpg) file. The jpeg picture format allows compression of a picture when you save it.. I never use the paint program on windows, so lack of it shouldn't harm anything... What resolution did you scan it at? 100dpi is about all you'll need to scan it at for posting it to the 'web...

If you still have trouble with getting the filesize on that picture down, email it to me and I'll work with it a bit...

Re: I Want to Post a Picture

If you're using Windows NT "Microsoft Photo Editor" has provisions for re-sizing images. If you can get your hands on it "Adobe Photoshop" is awesome. You can do some amazing things with it. If none of the above applies send 'em to Sandman or send 'em to me. It's a very simple thing to do that would take all of about 2 minutes. Better yet, talk to one of us about some kind of editing software. "If ya teach a man to fish..." [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: I Want to Post a Picture

Thanks for the help guys. I was saving the picture as Bmp.
It automatically went to that so that is the way I did it.
I will attach the picture just to make sure it worked.
Thanks again.
