    Off-site hosting, dude. Photobucket and the like. Until they change the size limits here, it's not worth the effort to try to squeeze your pics into 640 x 480.

    Making a file with each picture could help, but maybe it still would be over the maximum allowed file size.
    Even when reducing a single picture .jpg file to a 320 x 240 pixels size I'm over the size limit.

    As Squidbait mentions, off-site hosting is a very good solution. I use The Gauge Gallery.

    Both are handy i got lined up for the hosting thank you for that idea , and i did some on the Gauge gallery I think the issue is i like to play with the pictures before i post them so this adds alot of space .even after i resize them , next will be to learn how to get from the hosting site to the gauge .url, html ect it is all new to me. jep so time to feed the monkey
    rock and roll on

    I use The Gimp for resizing . The Gimp is freeware and there is a version for both Windows and Linux. It's a top quality program .

    Photoshop and Gimp both have options for optimizing for web saving. You can get 800x600 pixel images into very reasonable file sizes without too much loss in quality.
