pics

Sorry, I have tried, I read posts etc. How can I down size a picture so as to fit the size restriction for jpeg images? Or if it would be easier to convert to another image type, that will work to, I'm just stuck. Thanks

Use any imaging program. Microsoft Paint is one you almost surely have. Open your file in this program, click on "Image:Stretch/Skew." Resize it using the "Horizontal" and "Vertical" percentage boxes. Save and try to post again. You can click "Image:Attributes" to see the size in bytes after you resize.

No. JPEG's are compressed files, and all other formats, .BMP, etc, are far too large to post.

Zoomie's right, and if you don't have such a program, there's a ton of freeware & shareware out there that you can download to do the job. In general, I've found that a 640 x 480 JPEG is just about right, and doesn't stretch TFL's page borders.

When you check the attributes in Paint (if that's the program you'll use), just make sure it's less than 244,100 bytes.
