    When ever I try to upload photos to the gallery, I am invariably told that the file size is too big.

    Looking at other snaps on the site, mine do not seem to be of any greater complexity.

    Does anyone have any tips for reducing the file size of a photo without losing the quality?

    Hi Will.

    If your photo has a lot of "space" in it, e.g. sky, or other areas of similar colour, it's safe to up the compression rate on your jpg, as this will affect the "uninteresting" areas the most.
    In most cases, it's safe to have quite a high rate on jpg compression anyway, provided the photo's not too small. Try increasing this on a copy of your photo, and see what you think.

    i cant get my photos up on the site either, so they are nicely displayed on myspace-the link is in my signature :) go look, and leave me a nice comment! :)

    Seem to be adding new pictures all the time so keep checking! :)
