What are the chances??

Of maybe getting some extra space added onto our galleries where we uploads photos to?  I have some pics I would like to get up and I am running low on space?

 

Thanks, Marty

Wow, you must have a ton of photos, or maybe they are very big.  I think I must have about 100 or so, and I have only used about 1/4 of my disk space.

photos

Each member has 400 MB of file space for photos. We feel this is fairly substantial. We are also constrained by server limitations, so at this time we cannot increase per user allotment of file space.

To maximize your space, we recommend that you reduce the file size of your photos before uploading. Though our system allows you to upload photos up to 4 MB in file size, they should be considerably smaller for the web. An average of 100 KB per photo would allow you to upload 4000 photos. If they are an average of 50 KB, then you could upload 8000 photos. Photos on the web typically fall in the 50 to 100 KB size, so it's not an unreasonable file size.

If you run out of space, we recommend that you delete some of your larger file sized photos and reduce them in file size before uploading again.

I need some help on reducing

I need some help on reducing the file size of photos as I'm not a computer geek. I just get on the computer to play on the Internet. I guess it's time to take some computer classes but in the meantime, how do you reduce the file size of photos? Any help will be greatly appreiciated.

Reducing the size of pics

If you are using Microsoft Office Picture Manager (the one that comes with your MS system), open the picture and then:

1) Select "Edit Pictures" from the top

2) Select "Resize" from the bottom

3) Select "Predefined width x height:"

4) Select "Web - Large" from the dropdown menu

5) click "OK"

6) from the file menu, select "Save As" and rename the picture (if you don't do this and don't have another copy of the picture, you will lose the bigger copy) and select where you want to save the picture

I use both this method as well as iPhoto at home.  When I am uploading pictures to any web source, I usually create a new folder on my desk top and name it according to what I am uploading ("BGH story", "Webshots folder", "Pictures for Mom", etc.). I use this as a central place for me to keep all of th epictures that I intend to upload and makes it easier for me to find the exact pictures I am looking for when I hit the "browse" button.

I have more than 17000 pictures on my home computer and this method has really saved me some time.

Hope it helps!

Gimp

Gatorfan's suggestion is a good one.  You could also try the Gimp for a more full featured image processor.
