I think you might mean 5MB? 5KB is very small. I don't know your software, but find the re-size option and change the longest dimension to 800pixels. The other side should automatically re-size to keep the proportions. If the weight is over 300kb after that you will be able to reduce the size (weight) of the file to under 300kb by compression. In the programs I know you do this when you save as... You should get the option of applying different amounts of compression. You will have to use a trial and error method, but a good starting point would be about 70-80% quality. Then adjust up or down until you get the weight you want. Hope this helps

I should say, the size/weight of the file depends on the detail in the image, so every post will need a different amount of compression to get the size you want.

It is 5KB allright. I'll try to do as you say.

I must agree with Kath. 5kB is "waaaaaay too light", I can't imagine it was the "weight" of the photo when it came out of your camera?

Well, I just tried to upload one from the Microsoft Foto Editor file and the size was according to the list = 8.980 KB JPEG-picture. And I got the same message this time that" It is only JPEG pictures that are allowed".

I would say that 8.980 KB = 8,98 MB (according we use the point (.) to specifie the thousand in Europe)
Then that picture is "too heavy" you must downsize it till no more than 300 KB.

OK. I'm doing right now the "try and error" method in the Editor.

Hi Josefina,

... just my two cents...

according to this screenshot of BD sizer's interface, it seems like it's pretty easy to resize an image down to 800 x ... pixels using parameters in Resizing tab, and saving the same image at less than 300KB using parameters in the Saving tab.

Once resized and saved, file can be opened in Paint (simple editing program under Windows) and re-saved as JPG or JPEG that should then be accepted by TrekEarth.
