OK, I've tried subsampling my jpeg photo to 100 x 150 but I cant get it down to less than 8K. I should know how to do this but I don't. Any pointers?

05 DL650 "Big Red" (totalled)
93 DR350S (sold)

Try the Gimp software. You can find it at

It's an open source (Free!) software for photo editing, wich compares to photoshop. You can easily resize your picture and save it with the quality you want to change the size of the file.

Good luck!

If you have a photo editor change the density of the pic. (pixels/inch) to a lower number..
