What am I doing wrong?
« on: Sunday 02 May 04 07:51 BST (UK) »
Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong with the census images. I switch to basic veiwer, shrink down to 25% and save as a .GIF, but when I come to attach them they are too big ???.
Please help as this is driving me mad :-[
I did try to crop one but it just made it bigger ???

Ange,
The filesize needs to be less that 100kb, so if you have any program for compressing images then you can use that (very often there is an option for "save for web" or something similar)
