can not upload good quality picture to this site
I have a problem uploading a picture to this site. I thought the problem might be the file size. When I went into photoshop to compress a jpeg to fit on this site, the picture quality was terrible and I no longer wanted to share the picture. What is the secret to posting a picture ? The file limit appears to be 70 kb and the lowest I can make my file without it looking terrible is 892 kb. I am using a jpeg format.

The secret is to make all necessary adjustments (except unsharp mask) on the largest possible file first, maybe in tiff format.
Then resize (dimensions, 480 pixels tallest), then make that final adjustment of unsharp mask and save as a jpeg optimized file to be 70kb or less for posting as attachment.
Even if you upload a larger image on your own server and post here the link, it will take forerver to those viewers with a phone modem and will tend to just skip your message.
Have a great time :-)
