Thanks Gadget.  I did what you said reducing the size but now I've posted them they seem to be only about 31KB.  Are they big enough?

This is a whole new leaarning curve for me  :-\

They're 400 Susan but i see a few pixels showing. I'm wondering if you have compressed them when you saved as jpg. In the save as dialog, it should have an option part if you make this to the lowest compression/highest quality, it should be fine.

Hi all

Susan has sent me two files - left and right. They were  approx 4 MG each but i've resized then to circa 400kb. Resolution is 400dpi. I'll p[opst them each in turn and then try to join them.
Take your pick  ;D

And here's the combined version. I haven't adjusted the tonal balance for difference between left and right sides but I've put a couple of patches in at the top.

Better joined one!
