I have an oversize picture and it won't let me post it. How do I fix this and exactly how big is 35 kilobytes?

Casey, you need software like Paintshop or Photoshop to reduce the size of the photo. There may be other software, maybe even something free.

35kb is not a lot. Even a basic digital camera makes files that may be 1 megabyte or more. You'll have to make the photo a few inches across.

It's possible to place big pictures on your own web site, if you have one. Then put a link to the photo. Here's one of mine. It's only a bit over the limit.

I'm told there are online services than can store your photos if you have no site, but I don't know the details.
