I have a photo, which at 1.01 MB, is too large to upload but the dimensions of 1010 x 646 are alrady below the required minimum image size. Can anyone please advise what to do in these circumstances.

.Jpeg format? That's quite the size. If you rework the original, try saving it at 1 lower jpeg compression in photoshop (if that's what you use).

Thanks James.
It is a jpeg image and I use Photoshop Elements.
How do I save at a lower compression?

Malcom,
I don't know how it is with PS Elements, but with PS CS, you can choose your compression amount after you specify the filename and where to save it. A window should pop up with a slider, and some other little tidbits.

I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.

It's in the second stage of the 'save as' dialogue. You get a sliding scale that usually defaults to '7'. I usually set it as high as it will go (12) but you may want to try it at 10 or 11.

Unfortunately, PS Elements does not have the sliding scale you mention so I guess I'm stymied!
Thanks to all anyway.

PS Elements 2.0 has the sliding scale the same.

Also, when you are resizing your image in the "Image Size" box, try to adjust the Pixel Size and Document Size seperately. This can be done by either unchecking the Constrain Proportions or the Resample Image boxes.

Thanks, but I can assure you that I have Photoshop Elements 2 and the option is not present.
When I open the 'Save As' window, in the lower area titled 'save options',
the only choices are

Save ........... as a copy
colour ......... ICC profile
use lower case extension

There is a non illuminated outlined blank at the bottom but it isn't lit up and has no title.
I have tried all else and the only further option appears to be to crop the height further but this produces a non prefered size ratio as I cannot crop the width.

Guess I will have to save my pennies for a copy of full blown Photoshop.

That's the first screen. Then press save/save as and you'll see it in the middle of the dialogue box under "image options".

There really must be something odd about my copy of Elements 2.
There is only oner screen!
Press 'save as' then all I have is what I previously descibed.
Press 'save' and thats it
There are no image options!
Thanks anyway and don't worry,
Malcolm.

Malcolm,

In the 'Save As' dialog, are you changing the file format to JPEG? I have a funny feeling that you are not. The format field doesn't say TIFF, does it?

Craig,

Most of my images are oldies scanned from 35mm negatives into jpeg format, and I always retain this format through to the finished image.
I wish I could post a screen shot of the respective window but that's beyond my limited capabilities. I still plan to buy a copy of the full Photoshop.
However, it's no big deal as they say. I've had no problem with some 1800 other images and so far only 2 have left me stumped!
Incidentally, returning for the 4th time in 6 years to South Australia next month, Fabulous country in general, can't wait!

Regards,

Malcolm.

1) On selecting 'save as' from dropdown menu:



2) On choosing a filename and pressing save, you should see this:

This is very strange. I have Photoshop Elements 2.0 and I assure you I do get the second screen mentioned above when saving a jpeg image. I wonder if there is an option somewhere that turns this off, or maybe your registry is screwed up. You could try uninstalling and reinstalling, although that wont neccessarily fix a problem with the registry settings for that application as the uninstaller may simply leave those settings intact.

I hope you enjoy your trip to SA. Like many Australians I haven't actually been there myself! I must go there one day.

Cheers
Craig

Hi guy's

Wonder if you can help with this;

Unsuccessful upload

Too large photo
The file you uploaded was too large, it was 2048 x 1536 pixels and had a filesize of 925709 bytes. Try to keep your photos smaller than 1600 x 1600 pixels and limit filesize to 1MB (1048576 bytes).
Around 1200 pixels in width is the ideal. If you keep it that size your photo will not be resized and will be uploaded with full quality.
Please press the back button on your web browser to upload a new photo.

How can i change the size so i can upload to a.net and mya.net?

I fsomeone could talk me through it with words it would be great, thanks

Euro

As Mr Meldrew would say 'I can't believe it!'

As the unsharp mask has failed to function, although, strangely, the other sharpening tolls are there, I have now deleted Elements and re-installed and, wonder of wonders, it's all there. A slider adjustment of 1 did the job.

Many thanks to both James and Craig - what would old duffers like me do without the kind advice given freely by the likes of yourselves.

Story end I think!  Big thumbs up

"Many Australians haven’t actually been there ……….."

Craig, Adelaide isn't exactly the outback. It's a beautiful if quiet city by Sydney standards with stacks of thinly populated beaches nearby.
Oh I know you were only kidding!

Thanks again both.
