Sorry to say, but at these e-mail list we are not allowed putting picture,
you have to put the picture on a "online photoalbum" and put a link from

That certainly works, but is not always needed, now.
Sorry, but my english is not that good, so may be other people can explain
it better :-)
Since the list was moved to Actwin, Barry *has* permitted small
attachments, so we could send pictures to the list. The "small" is to
avoid bloating the archives and making for slow downloads for folks with
slower dialup connections. [IDK what he has defined as "small" but on
our BAKA list, I think I put a file-size limit of around 100K, which
allows beautiful, detailed screen pics, but is not really good enough
for big prints)
Unfortunately, some old conventions may confuse some folks on how to
change file sizes to get them within the limits set by the server. You
need to edit the file, and save as a new file with horizontal and
vertical size and with compression changed.
Changing DPI has absolutely nothing to do with the size of the file
(it's just a printer instruction, mostly ignored by printers).* You must
change the number of horizontal and vertical pixels, and use a
reasonable amount of JPEG compression to get it down there. Shoot for a
file size of under 50K, I would guess.
Typical values might be 640X480 and medium compression. Don't try to use
BMP, TIFF, or other such file types. The type should be a file that ends
in ".jpg" (or jpeg in some cases).
HTH, Karl. [Send it to me, off list, and I'll see what needs to be done,
if you like.]
*The 72 DPI that you see in many photo editors is a left-over from early
Adobe days, and is the exact screen resolution of the first little
postage-stamp B&W Mac screens. :-) For decent printing, you often need
more like 300 DPI, but that is still an interpolation *instruction* to
the printer, with no effect whatsoever on file size or actual picture
resolved pixels. Pixels are not ink/phosphor dots and vice versa. ;-)
