Well.. the 2nd 77kb photo attachement was refused as "exceeding file size limit" by 686 bytes. So, does that mean the posting limit for newbys is about 150kb?
BTW, I started with about 200kb JPEG photos and used IrfanView to reduce the image size to 640x480 and got a file size of 77kb no matter what options and quality level I chose. Nothing made any difference. Am I missing something to get more compression from JPEG using IrfanView?
