    If you are a user of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, use the “Image Size” dialog bx to convert your photo to 72 DPI and approx. 400-800 pixels wide (the height will work out automatically) - then use “Save for Web” and try jpg “medium”, file size should be really small. Of course, don’t save changes to the original picture since you still want that big on your computer and for your archiving and storage.

    Here is the original thread at the top of this forum:

    I also enclosed the Photoshop dialog pic here.

    If you want a really nice sized pic, use 72 DPI, and 700-800 pixels wide, or if you use the "inches" box, use 7 to 11 inches.
