How in the world do you get a .jpeg to be less than 6KB?? I've tried cropping, resizing, pixel reduction, color reduction, different formats, and prayer! Nothing seems to work.

The smallest size I can get to is about 22kb.

Any help?

dekuji vam,

Robert,

It is possible to get an image smaller than 6KB by using image editing software. I created a help page at http://www.myczechrepublic.com/boards/help.html that has some basic information and lists a free software program for those who do not have their own image editing program. We need to have the images small, so they don't slow the loading of the pages.

In your image editing software, size your JPEG to no more than 80 x 80 pixels and keep selecting a higher amount of compression (e.g. a lower quality setting) until you get the file small enough. If you still can't get it, email your photo to...support@mcremail.com and we will size it for you.

IRFRAN View is a great program for resizing photos and shrinking file sizes:

Download it on TuCows:

GIMP (www.gimp.org) is also a very good tool for image authoring and photo editing. It is available for free use and distribution for various operating systems (Unix/Linux, MacOS, Windows). The newer versions compare easily to Adobe Photoshop.
